Faced with the continued downturn of the market, the uncertainty of the economic environment, and the challenge of the automotive industry's accelerated transformation into intelligentization and electrification, in 2018, Changan Automobile launched its third innovation and entrepreneurship program, which initiated the transition from traditional products to intelligent + new energy products. In the field of intelligence, Changan Automobile released the “Beidou Tianshu Plan”, as well as integrated global resources, and built three industrial clusters of intelligent driving, intelligent network and three-dimensional transportation to further promote the development of automotive intelligence. Also in 2018, Changan New Energy's "Shangri-La Partner Program" was officially launched to promote the fast development of China's new energy vehicles.

This strong alliance not only vigorously promoted the third innovation and entrepreneurship process of Changan Automobile, but also promoted the transformation and upgrading of the automobile industry to intelligent and new energy and rapid breakthrough. We believe that in the future, Changan Automobile will integrate more excellent resources and accelerate the advancement of China's automobile industry.
