COSCHARIS MOTORS ASSEMBLY PLANT WINS THE OUTSTANDING AUTO ASSEMBLING COMPANY OF THE YEAR

It was another brilliant outing for one of the leading auto giant in Nigeria, Coscahris Motors Plc through its local assembly arm of the business, Coscharis Assembly Plant as it carted home the award of the Outstanding Auto Assembling Company of the Year at this years’ Marketing Edge 10th anniversary Summit and Awards held recently in Lagos.

Coscharis Assembly Plant which is a Semi – Knocked Down (SKD) plant located at the group head office of Coscharis Group at Awoyaya, Lagos currently assembles iconic brands like the Ford and Renault. Specifically, the plant assembles the Ford Ranger, Renault Duster and Logan respectively.

Receiving the award on behalf of the Company, the General Manager, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Coscharis Group, Abiona Babarinde dedicated the award to customers that believed in the locally assembled vehicles produced from the plant with their patronage over the years. In his words, “this award is to reconfirm the pedigree of Coscharis Motors as a leading player to reckon with when it comes to setting standards in the automotive industry in Nigeria. This is another confirmation and endorsement by the marketing media sector as pace setter of Coscharis’ positive contribution to the growth of the automotive industry in Nigeria. This award is dedicated to all our numerous customers for their patronage and also to our partners (Ford and Renault brands) for believing in us to deliver locally assembled vehicles in our country that meets the global standard of their various brands”.

The Coscharis Assembling Plant remains one of the surviving local assembly plants in Nigeria despite the challenging business environment. The Company has resolved to turn all the challenges to opportunities in delivering local contents by way of setting standards when it comes to local assembling of respected automobile brands in Nigeria for Nigerians at affordable prices without compromising the global standard and quality. 

About Coscharis Motors Assembly Plant

Coscharis Motors Plc started the assembly of Semi –Knocked Down (SKD) vehicles in 2015 when the Nigeria government introduced the New Automotive Policy. It started temporarily at their Ikeja facility with JoyLong buses which is an eighteen seater bus and Ford Ranger which are pickups of 4×4 double cabin, 4×2 double cabin and 4×2 single cabin respectively. It was later moved to the ultra-modern main Plant located at the Group head office, Awoyaya, Lekki – Epe Expressway, Lagos in the year 2017; when they included Renault Duster 4×4, 4×2 SUV and also Renault Logan which is a saloon car. The production capacity of the main assembly plant stands at about 90 vehicles per day but the current production has painfully been reduced to about 10 vehicles per day which is due to so many factors like lack of conducive business environment, lack of infrastructure, inconsistent policy support, low patronage of locally assembled vehicles in Nigeria amongst others. Staff strength for the Assembly plant is 86 (74 Nigerians and 12 expatriates). There are aftersales facilities for the brands in all the major cities of the country where original parts from partner OEMs are stocked.

At full capacity running, the assembly plant will be able to fill in the gap of imported used vehicles into the country and by extension influence the delivery of Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in the automotive industry with other brands opening similar plants like we presently experience in South Africa with a better conducive business environment. Taking into consideration the multiple expected implication of generating more employment and opportunities for Nigerians to own cheaper vehicles that are produced specifically for the terrain with the ready market advantage of over 200million population.

Besides, its front grille, 14” wheel rims and door mirror shells give it a distinctive look when compared to other cars in its class.

RENAULT KOLEOS

 

Renault Koleos is an SUV specially designed to broaden your outlook. An unprecedented combination of power and refinement, its assertive design pushes the boundaries of what is expected and expresses itself with bold style. Its confident stature commands respect. An SUV with broad shoulders and muscular side panels, its robust front end, broad tyres and large wheelbase give it the look of a partner that can rise to any challenge. The Renault Koleos takes you further, whichever path you take, whatever your quest.

 

The Renault Koleos can be described as the art of drawing attention. It embodies new aspirations. Charismatic, with a sense of detail and personality enhanced by its sleek appearance and athletic curves. Everything in the Koleos is designed for your driving pleasure. The ergonomics of the centre console, which puts the main controls at your fingertips, the technologies controlled by the R-LINK 2 multimedia system with its 8.7-inch touchscreen, the personalisation of the TFT instrument panel and the innovative driver assistance tools all help create an unprecedented experience combining pleasure and ease on board.

The design of the Koleos and the choice of materials will meet all of your expectations. The finish of the overstitched leather, the satin finish of the chrome inserts and the immaculate trim of the doors provide a level of comfort that is worthy of a large saloon. The grab handles on either side of the centre console and the raised driving position let you know that you are in a real SUV.

 

The Koleos allows you to immerse yourself in a rich acoustic experience, as intense as a live concert, with the Bose® audio system. Configure the features of the large, connected R-LINK 2 touch screen, taking full control of the vehicle, multimedia, navigation, telephone and driving assistance functions. The generous amount of space has been dedicated to your comfort and that of your passengers. Your seat hugs you whilst the sunroof opens up new perspectives. You experience the spirit of adventure that comes with SUVs from the comfort of your “cocoon”, both in front and in the rear. To make your life easier, Renault has fitted the New Koleos with Remote Engine Start. Programme it with the time that you want your vehicle to start and by the time you step into your car, the temperature inside will be perfect. Welcome to a new kind of comfort with programmable settings.

 

 

Drive the New Koleos and experience the e­ffect of its all-terrain ALL MODE 4×4-i technology; its engine, connected to its new X-Tronic gearbox; and its numerous driver assistance technologies—not to mention the unique quality of its Bose® sound system. It’s the kind of performance that will always take you further, be it on an urban adventure or o­ the beaten track.
