Ben Bruce buys another Made in Nigeria Car...#BuyNairaToGrowNaira

A member of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ben Murray Bruce, has taken delivery a unit of the made-in-Nigeria Kia Soul, one of the locally produced Kia model range.

He took delivery of the vehicle as a way of promoting made-in- Nigeria vehicles.

Ben Bruce also applauded the commitment and determination of Kia in partnering with the federal government to advance the country’s economy.

This came as Kia Motors Nigeria again reinforced its unwavering commitment to the industrialisation of Nigerian economy and its indelible contributions to the success of the auto industry by investing heavily in an assembly plant. Its state of the art technologies are arguably at par with any renowned and international plant in the world.

The plant launched at the wake of the year 2015, prides itself on the production of nine tropicalised and made-for-Nigeria models with their respective trims in the country with over 2500 units rolled out since its launch.

The Chief Commercial Officer, Sandeep Malhotra , alluded to the fact that the success of the plant is premised on Nigerian government’s favourable disposition to empowering local industry. In his submission, he stated that Kia Motors Nigeria remained resolute and committed to the long term investment in the auto industry despite the short term challenges currently faced. The plant has the capacity to produce 27,000 vehicles in a year and there is a provision to increase the production lines which is dependent on the demand.

The sprawling complex which has been built to the high standard of KIA Motors Corporation, follows several months of construction, installation of technologically advanced equipment and the training of its staff. All these have snowballed into KIA first assembly lines that assemble Kia models, such as its best-selling Kia Rio, Cerato, Optima, Sportage and the all-new 2015 Kia Sorento recently unveiled globally amongst others.  With the quality of the vehicles produced locally in the company’s Lagos plant, it’s apparently lucid that there was no compromise on the high standard of the plant and it remains one of the best in the country.

Kia Motors Nigeria’s collaborative stride with the government to boost local economy through its made in Nigeria vehicles has continued to wax stronger in recent times. The company’s investment in the automotive sector of the economy by establishing its assembly plant was hinged on its relentless efforts to partner with the government to further strengthen the economy by diversifying into other sectors that promises great socioeconomic development for the country.
