Changan Ford Automobile Assembly Plant 2 – Chongqing, China

The Changan Ford Automobile assembly plant 2, formerly known as Changan Ford Mazda, is a manufacturing facility located in the city of Chongqing in Southwest China. It currently produces vehicles like the Ford Focus, the Ford S-Max and the Ford Kuga. While the original plant exists since 2004, it was in 2012 that a 50/50 joint venture between Chinese-based Changan Automobile and the Ford Motor Company was established. This spawned two manufacturing locations, the Changan Ford Automobile Assembly Plant 1, and this one: The Changan Ford Automobile Asembly Plant 2.

Contrary to the rest of Ford’s assembly plants, Changan is an independent manufacturing complex whose principal activity is the assembly and distribution of Ford vehicles destined exclusively to the Chinese market. When combined with its sister facilities, it is currently Ford Motor’s largest manufacturing location outside Detroit, with plants located in Chongqing, Hangzhou and Harbin.
