Changan Suzuki to display new models at Beijing auto show.

April 7, 2008 - Chongqing Chang'an Suzuki Automobile Co.,Ltd., a joint venture between Chang'an Motors and Suzuki Motors, will unveil some 18 models of Swift and Tianyu SX4, the Xinhua news agency reported today.

Mr Takashi Mayazaki, deputy general manager of Changan Suzuki, told the media that the company plans to launch various editions of the two brands, aiming to meet discriminating demands of its customers.

Changan Suzuki fell short of its target last year by selling only 110,000 vehicles, a market share of 3%, almost no increase over 2005. Mayazaki attributes this to the lack of new models and poor sales network but he denied the company has any plan to produce the Suzuki Vitara SUV in China in 2008.

He further added that the company will bring its latest products to China and increase the number of dealers from 50 to 200 within 2008.

While Changan Suzuki is struggling to meet its sales target, Changan Auto Group's other joint venture Changan Ford Mazda sold 217,848 vehicles in China last year, representing an increase of 60 percent from one year earlier.

Changan-Suzuki to launch 8 new car models in late 2008.

June 20, 2008 - Chongqing Chang'an-Suzuki Automobiles Co., Ltd., a venture of Suzuki Motor Corporation of Japan in Southwest China, will launch eight new car models in the second half of 2008.

The venture, which released two new car models like 1.5L Swift and SX4 Sports Limited version during the first half of this year, will launch Swift summer special version, which adopts the design element of concept car model "concept-S" and is developed in three years, resembling BMW's small car model Mini-cooper.

The skylight version of the two-compartment SX4 will hit the market in the third quarter with the same price of two-compartment SX4 on sale.

Besides, Splash, a new-generation of Suzuki's classical small car model Alto which has attracted a lot of eyeballs since 2007-end, will be made in the venture at the year-end and sold in January 2009 with the same price range as Swift cars. Its instrument panel is quite similar to that of BMW Mini.
