Isuzu set to begin exportation of vehicles from Nigeria

The National Automotive Policy received a boast last week when a Japanese automaker, Isuzu Motors Limited in collaboration with a Nigerian company, Kewalram Chanrai Group, has promised to start exporting locally-assembled trucks to West African countries.

The two auto giants said work had started on the assembly plant site in Lagos, saying that the first set of locally assembled Isuzu trucks would be out in the second quarter of 2016.

According to Kewalram Chanrai Group Deputy Managing Director, Mr Victor Eburajolo, the project would be financed by a subsidiary of the group, Koncept Auto Centre Limited, with technical support coming from Isuzu Motors of Japan.

Koncept Autocentre General Manager, Mr Gaurav Kaul, expressed the possibility of exporting some of the locally assembled trucks to other West African countries.

“We expect that by 2016, we should be fully operational and running. We’re starting with light duty trucks,” he explained.

“We’re for the auto policy and are encouraged by the government. We’re in contact with the NADDC and we carry the council along on the project. Two weeks ago, its team was with us. We’re here to stay as Isuzu is known for quality products and we will maintain that standard with the new trucks to be assembled in Nigeria,” he said.
