The NEW Changan Star III series and much anticipated Landwind auto swoops into South Africa
Johannesburg, Muldersdrift – JMCSA International recently unveiled the long awaited Changan Star III series and Landwind Automatic SUV at an intimate event.
The Changan Company was first founded in Shanghai in 1862 and has a history of 154 years. It was one of the earliest Chinese enterprises opening up to the outside world. In 1937, they moved to Chongqing – back then, the largest enterprise. In 1984 they started in the automotive business, producing the first batch of small sized vehicles in China. By 2014 they have sold more than 10 million units worldwide.
In 2013 JMCSA took over the distribution of Chana in SA and diverted back to the original name of Changan. This year, with the brand new Star III Series, Changan is soon to take the market by storm. With a better design, bigger and longer load bins, derivatives of Single and Double cabs, and now also a Minivan to choose from, they are looking to establish themselves as the number one supplier catering to the needs of small businesses.
Not only has the Changan design been improved for a bigger, better loading capacity, but other enhancements include a much more powerful engine- 72 kw@r/min, 3 year/ 100 000 Km warranty and bigger tyres.
With a load bin of 2.75 m, the Single Cab is now the one tonner with the biggest load bin in its class. A complete new edition – the Minivan Changan will cater for a broad amount of small business owners wanting to transport a load without exposing it to the elements of nature. The Double Cab now allows for extra passengers, still able to carry a load comfortably with a bin sized 2.06m and if you like a bit of luxury, the Lux unit offers air con and central locking.
