Made-in-Nigeria cars ‘Innoson Group of Companies‘ is set to roll out it’s latest brand of cars oriented for low and middle class earners in Nigerians.
The company, which specializes in the manufacturing of cars, buses, tankers and other products, will from August the 8, launch these cars into the Nigerian automobile-market at the price of N1.5 million.
Innocent Chukwuma, chairman of the firm, relayed this recently in Enugu, saying all vehicles manufactured would come fully air-conditioned and also fitted with superior gadgets designed to suit the needs of an average Nigerian.
Chukwuma said: “I will launch my own cars in about two weeks. And the cars will cost between N1.5 million and N3.5 million, depending on the cadre.” “Some people think that my factory is an assembly plant, but they are wrong. We do not assemble, we manufacture.”
“Eighty percent of Nigerians do not believe that we manufacture vehicles in my company. But we do manufacture. “The raw materials are bought from different countries and some in Nigeria.”
Many Nigerians have joined the #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira campaign started by Senator Ben Murray Bruce. The campaign has also become a platform for local businessmen and manufacturers to present what they are capable of producing.
