Hyundai Motors Nigeria Limited has said it started phased delivery of low-priced made-in-Nigeria cars that were assembled at the company’s plant in Lagos to its provisional dealers nationwide last week.
Stallion Group, owners of the multi-vehicle plant, produced made-in-Nigeria Nissan range of vehicles last April.
Chairman of Stallion Group, Mr. Sunil Vaswani, said the new vehicles “will be affordably priced in order to free Nigerians from the stranglehold of wholesale vehicle importers.”Company officials said some of the vehicles delivered in the passenger car segment are; Hyundai i10, Grand, Elantra and iX35 SUV. Those in the light commercial vehicle segment are; the 10-ton HD160; seven-ton HD 120; five-ton HD78 and three-ton HD65 and in the commuter bus category are; 28+1 seater Hyundai County bus and 30-seater Stallion County.

Hyundai Motors Nigeria has hitherto announced starting price of between N1.5m and N1.9m for the i10 and Grand models respectively, having announced in July it was commencing phased production of affordably priced Hyundai models.
Hyundai Motors Nigeria plant Managing Director, Tokunbo Aromolaran said the vehicles were built to the world’s highest automotive operating standard – ISO/TS 16949.

Aromalaran explained that the benefits of ISO/TS 16949 included improved quality processes with streaming supply chains that lead to better overall product.

He said, “We are glad to inform Nigerians that we have delivered on our promise to make available affordably priced vehicles – thanks to strong-willed President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the indefatigable supervisory roles of the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment headed by Dr. Olusegun Aganga.”

The first phase delivery establishes a system of record for the complete vehicle programme, which would gradually be expanded to meet the ever-increasing demands for functional vehicle in Nigeria, the plant director said.
He enjoined prospective customers to “walk into any of our dealership showrooms nationwide to buy value-driven made-in-Nigeria Hyundai certified vehicles.”

He said Hyundai i10, Grand, Elantra and iX35 SUV are elegantly crafted functional cars with impressive  styling, good fuel economy with fantastic driving experience and modest starting price for every desiring buyer.
The Group Managing Director, sale, marketing and Dealer Development, Hyundai Motors Nigeria Limited, Mr. Parvir Singh, who received the made-in-Nigeria vehicles on behalf of the company’s provisional dealers, described the accomplishment as a milestone in the history of Nigeria’s evolving automotive industry, urging customers to take advantage of the discounted price to patronise certified made-in-Nigeria Hyundai vehicles.

Singh, who is responsible for creative and imaginative marketing strategies as well as brand support, said “Some of Hyundai Motors Nigeria provisional dealers in Abuja, Warri, Asaba, Abakaliki and Lagos have commended the initiative as fundamental to Hyundai increasing customer base in Nigeria.”
