Chang’an Auto, aka Chana, has joint ventures with Ford and Suzuki and makes the Volvo S40 and S80 as well, but those likely not for so long anymore. Chang’an got their own cars as well but their line up is a bit messy. It consist of minivans, minicars and small hatchbacks and sedans that all don’t really look alike and overlap eachother. This new L31 won’t change that, it doesn’t look like the others at all and will be priced almost exactly as the CM8 minivan. The L31 however, is meant for city folk while the CM8 is more a commercial vehicle made to resemble a passenger vehicle.
