Changan Motor Philippines, Inc. (CMPI), the official distributor of Changan vehicles, is scheduled to hold its first public event on November 26, 2020. The company is introducing its initial salvo of five new models that are loaded with above-class technology and safety features.
The newest car brand in the country is one of China’s “Big 4” automakers and is known for its “V” logo. It has 37 years of experience in auto manufacturing and has a strong presence in the Middle East, South America, North Africa, and Southeast Asia. Locally, CMPI is powered by an experienced management team and a dealership network that is led by industry veterans.
“Many have asked why we are launching a new brand in this challenging environment. The answer is simple--as an industry veteran of 20 years, I strongly believe Changan is a promising brand, a challenger brand with vehicles and services that will excite the Philippine market at this most unexpected time,” said CMPI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo.
“I am also a believer in offering Filipinos a wider range of product options, and Changan vehicles have that winning combination of intelligent features, trend-setting designs, extensive safety features, and outstanding engine performance. With its attractive price points, motorists no longer need to pay a premium to enjoy premium features. We guarantee that once you drive a Changan, it will change your mindset, change the status quo, and definitely change your life,” she added.
