Sichuan-Chongqing Automobile Company gradually resumes production

Since the May 12 earthquake, the Sichuan-Yunnan region, which was located in the epicenter of the earthquake, has immediately become the focus of all parties. Although most auto companies in the Sichuan region are in danger and have gradually resumed production, they have given priority to ensuring the transport of relief materials. Under the premise of this, logistics systems such as spare parts supply and vehicle sales in this area are facing a severe test. According to industry experts, the earthquake will have a certain impact on the automobile production companies in Sichuan and Chongqing in a short period of time, but the overall impact on the domestic auto market will be limited, and the negative impact will not be greater than the national snow and ice disaster at the beginning of the year.

Chongqing auto companies have a minor impact. Changan Automobile Group, Chang'an Ford Mazda, Changan Suzuki, and Chongqing Lifan, which are located in the northern New District of Chongqing, have not been destructively affected.

Most auto listed companies in the Sichuan-Chongqing region issued announcements one after another. Changan Automobile, Zongshen Power, Chengfei Integration, Jianmo B, and Yunnei Dynamics all stated that the earthquake had no direct impact on the company's production and operations. However, auto companies such as Ya'an and Chengdu, which are closer to Wenchuan, are less fortunate. At present, Sichuan Jian’an, the largest domestic manufacturer of micro-car rear axles, is located in Ya’an City, which is 120 kilometers away from Wenchuan. In this earthquake, the buildings, facilities, equipment, products, and buildings in the family’s area suffered various degrees of damage. On May 14th, the company organized professional departments to investigate and identify potential safety hazards such as sites and equipment to resume production. On May 15, the company finally resumed normal production.

The FAW-Volkswagen Chengdu production base in Chengdu has also been affected. There are no casualties in the factory. Workers are currently testing the equipment and can resume production without problems. The FAW-Volkswagen Chengdu plant with an annual production capacity of 300,000 units is the third largest production base of FAW Group after Changchun and Tianjin. Jetta, which supplies the western market, will come from the plant. The Jetta of Chengdu plant plans to produce 240,000 vehicles a year. . "Currently, there is no information on the impact of Chengdu's production base." Volkswagen workers said.
