11 facts about Innoson Motors you might not know

1. Innoson Motors owner

Innocent Chukwuma is the founder and chairman of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing company. Innocent Chukwuma, as per tradition amongst his native Igbos, was apprenticed to an older businessman at a young age. After his apprenticeship, he first started a spare parts partnership with his brother, and afterward, started his own company.

Soon, he was importing motorcycle parts to assemble in Nigeria, and soon after, in 2007, he started the vehicle assembly arm of the company - Innoson Motors. It has been one success after the other since then.

2. Innoson Motors net worth

Innocent Chukwuma is worth about $1.5b or in the region of ₦540 billion. His core business is vehicle manufacturing, but he also has interests in agriculture, plastics, and motorcycles.

3. Innoson Motors logo

The IVM logo was a simple design of the word “IVM” around an ellipse. In May of 2019 a young Nigeria designer, Osuolale Farouq designed a brand new logo for Innoson on a speculative basis. He shared it on Twitter and asked for it to be retweeted until it got the attention of Innoson.

In an amazing grass to grace story, the chairman of IVM then requested a meeting with the budding designer. Though details of the meeting were not disclosed, it is a general opinion that a deal was struck, as Innoson has publicly begun to acknowledge the new logo.

4. Brand ambassador

Innoson's brand ambassador is Bbnaija 2019 top girl, Mercy Eke who is also called "Lamborghini." She also got an IVM G40 SUV worth ₦25 million.

7. Are Innoson vehicles made in Nigeria?

The debate has raged regarding whether IVM is just a simply assembly plant or a true automaker. IVM has maintained that it manufactures 70% of the components of its cars with just 30% imported. This makes IVM a true local automaker. 

8. Global presence

Sierra Leone, Mali, and Ghana are some countries where Innoson vehicles have been sold. Innoson plans to make itself a brand for all of Africa soon. 

9. Innoson Motors G Wagon - the controversies around its originality and prices

Despite the claimed localization rate of IVM products, controversy arose recently over IVM G80 - Innoson's luxury SUV, as it is criticized for being a near replica of the popular Mercedes Benz G-Wagon. Many called the IVM G80 a cheap knock-off of the super performance German car. How did the IVM G80 wind up looking so like the G-Wagon?

innoson-g80-vs-mercedes-g-wagon

Innoson G80 vs Mercedes Benz G Wagon - striking resemblance!

Quite simply, really. The IVM G80 is a variant of the BAIC BJ80 SUV. This Chinese made SUV is actually a replica of the G-Wagon, and was designed to be a cheap alternative. Amazingly the BAIC BJ80 is sold for about ₦15m, while the G80 is around ₦27m. The original G-Wagon is between ₦45m and ₦55m.

So yes, Innoson does manufacture cars, but not completely sometimes :).

Innoson builds armored vehicles for the Nigerian Army. Other Government bodies using Innoson vehicles include FRSC and 8 states recently listed as its patrons.
