The Renault Duster and Logan models which were produced at the Renault Assembly Plant in Awoyaya, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, were test-driven by select Nigerian auto journalists.
After the test driving which lasted over two hours, the journalists led by the Chairman of the Nigerian Association of Auto Journalists, NAJA, Mr. Mike Ochonma, expressed their satisfaction with the quality of the locally assembled cars.
Speaking on the special feat, the Group Managing Director, Coscharis Group, Josiah Samuel said;
“If you recall in July 2019 we formally announced our partnership with the Renault Group to represent their auto brands in Nigeria. This was done with fanfare when we equally showcased our ultra-modern Semi – Knocked Down Assembly Plant located at our group head office in Lagos.
“As at today, Coscharis Motors is set to commence Renault vehicle sales based on locally assembled models and fully built models for Nigeria roads. The plan is to ensure that we continually deliver value for money by providing quality automobile like the Renault brand vehicles to discerning Nigerians at affordable price range”.
“So far, we have secured all the requisite OEM’s ratings and approvals to commence assemblage of the Duster and Logan while we are presently bringing in fully – built Koleos, Kwid and Oroch (which is to be introduced at a later date)”. Coscharis Motors is offering customers the options of 1.0 to 2.5-litre engines across the models.
Furthermore, Samuel pointed out,
“Coscharis is fully equipped to handle all after-sales services and repairs. We have the original parts coupled with the right tools to fix the parts and Renault Certified Technicians to fix your vehicles. With the technical back up of our Renault partners, we are positioned to deliver seamless aftersales services across our available facilities across the country for both existing owners and potential new customers.
“This gives us the confidence from our pedigree in representing iconic brands in Nigeria that we are set to simply delight our customers once again with the Renault brand as the exclusive franchise owner in Nigeria”.
