1. Innoson cars in Nigeria: Overview

Known as the first wholly indigenous auto manufacturing company in Nigeria, Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) Co. Ltd attracts customer attention with its made-in-Nigerian vehicles that are made with purely Nigerian specs and not European, Japanese or American specs.

Japanese specs vehicle mean that it is made mainly to be used in Japan, so the Japanese environment is put in considerations while the carmakers producing their vehicles. Similar considerations were taken when American or European carmakers manufacture their cars.

Nigerian drivers are less lucky than their American or Japanese counterparts as they virtually had no opportunity to drive cars that are specially made for Nigerian environment, until the entrance of Innoson Motors.

IVM announced that their cars are made based on the environment, consumer preferences and local tastes in both Nigeria and African region – its concept of regionalization - during the production of its vehicles. Moreover, the Nigerian auto manufacturing firm stated that they would collect all users’ feedback and make constant improves on their cars accordingly to better meet all Nigerian customer demands.
