THE Chairman of Innoson Group, Dr. Innocent Chukwuma, at the weekend, disclosed that the company would commence the manufacturing of affordable and quality vehicles in Nigeria by 2018. Innoson made the disclosure while receiving the Nigeria Institute of Public Relations, NIPR’s, ‘Brands Symbol Award’, which was conferred on him by the Acting chairman of Federal Capital Territory, FCT, chapter of the institute, Aliyu Aliyu.

Innoson said the company would begin to roll out the brand new affordable cars from January and would significantly curtail the importation of expensive vehicles into the country. He said:  “I am going to launch a car in one month’s time that people can easily buy in Nigeria with small money. I am looking at about N3 million. The car will be big size, which will have air conditioning, automatic gear and other comforts that will make it easier for all. “I am not just interested in the Nigerian market alone but the African market.” and that is where my interest lies now. “I believe that anything you are doing do it well and if properly done it will market itself.

In Innoson Motors where things are done well we try as much as possible to meet international standard and to meet our customers’ demand and expectation with good quality, which people are interested in our vehicles everywhere.” He commended the Federal Government for its efforts at making Nigeria an automobile manufacturing destination, while he called on Nigerians to patronize and support manufacturers in the sector, as well as other sectors.

He said this would drive the growth and development of the manufacturing sector, which remains the only way Nigerian economy could grow faster. Commenting on the award, he expressed happiness that organizations such as NIPR were watching and gave him such high recognition for his little contribution to developing the economy. He said the award will spur him to do more in his automobile manufacturing business, which Africa remains his target market.

    Welldone Dr Innocent. In this ever changing world and innovative era, it would adaptive of what is common to look into producing batteries rechargeable cars. God help you in this direction.

      Rechargeable cars can come later after our roads have been fixed and charging outlets can be built at strategic points that will be safe. For now, low cost cars is what is needed, so long they can stand the condition of our roads.

    Dear IVM, Please I will like to know if you are open to discuss research ideas that can reduce the cost of production of the engine parts like the “piston” of your cars.

    Well-done sir. We are behind you. By God’s grace one day I will own an Invisible vehicle. But you have to market it, it won’t market itself.

    Dr. Innocent I am very happy to learn of you manufacturing motors here in Nigeria, it is very gracious to have a car manufacturing company in our country. I will urge you to continue riding on your mission to improve Nigeria and African as a whole.

    i have always looked at IVM with hope that they would be different and not be influenced by the Nigerian mentality. i however have checked almost all the car reviews, website and adverts and i see that IVM is lacking in the marketing and reviews. i review cars for a hobby and i can say your sales are probably low because you havnt shown people what your cars can do. Market more by doing online reviews and making your website a place to see all specs and builds of your cars and also customize cars for people just like landrover does. i can help in anyway possible,i am a computer consultant by training
