To revive the sales performance, Changan Automobile plans to roll out several new models in 2019, including the CS85, the CS95, the CS15, the EADO ET and the all-new CS75, etc. The CS85, positioned as the automaker's first Coupe SUV, hit the market on March 6 with its prices ranging between RMB136,900 and RMB169,900.
