Breakthrough in Nigeria paves the way for accelerated growth in African market

ABUJA, Nigeria, June 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — GAC Motor has officially delivered 150 GA3Ss to Nigerian police force in Nigerian capital city of Abuja, which were purchased and donated by Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Chairman of Aliko Dangote Foundation. This is the second time that the company has delivered cars to Nigerian police, after an initial order from the Lagos police department in 2015. The bulk order is further recognition of GAC Motor’s growth in the African market, and affirmation of the excellent quality and high safety standards of its vehicles. The delivery ceremony was attended by distinguished guests including Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria.

“GAC Motor has successfully brought a variety of signature models to Nigeria, gaining bulk purchase orders from local governments for showing its quality and positive brand image.

The Nigerian police spoke highly of the powerful and intelligent design and excellent safety features of GA3S. It is believed that the model’s style, design and customized smart safety features can be adapted to the complex requirements of police cars.

To better adapt to market developments in Africa, GAC Motor is constantly optimizing vehicle designs based on local road conditions to guarantee reliable quality and performance. Most models have been specifically adjusted to meet the requirements of performing on bumpy and muddy roads, such as by adding higher chassis to improve passing clearance. With its excellent product quality and high adaptability to the African market, GAC Motor won the favor of local consumers and has been the best-selling Chinese brand in Nigeria.

GAC Motor achieved its market success by sticking to its quality-first principle. For five years in a row, GAC Motor has been ranked first among all Chinese brands in J.D. Power Asia’s IQS study. GS8, the most popular model in Nigeria, is rated five-star by C-NCAP (China-New Car Assessment Program). It has also established strategic partnerships with the world’s top suppliers and recruited top talent to strictly monitor quality, which will boost the company’s

Noteworthy milestones for GAC Motor in African market

  • Opened the first dealer shop in Nigeria in December 2014, and a second two years later.
  • In 2016, GAC Motor established a SKD (semi knocked-down) factory in Nigeria, becoming the first Chinese auto brand to have parts assembled locally.
  • In 2017, the Nasarawa State government made a bulk purchase of GS8s, GS4s and GA3Ss as official reception vehicles.

Achieving a solid foundation in Nigeria, a participating country in China’s “Belt and Road” Initiative, will allow GAC Motor to more effectively reach the greater African market, and to push forward its brand internationalization.

Vice President of Foton Motor Group and CEO of Foton International Mr. Chang Rui and the Chairman and CEO of Piaggio Group Roberto Colaninno signed a final contract in Italy for the development and production of a new range of four-wheel light commercial vehicles

Since 2016, Foton Motor and Piaggio Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and a Framework Agreement in succession. The final signing of this agreement symbolizes that the two parties have sufficiently completed the project feasibility analysis and officially entered the implementation stage of new product development. The European market is an important sector for the global layout of Foton Motor. The new product development project with Piaggio Group this time is not only a strategic solution of Foton’s global diversification but also demonstrates Foton’s resolution for the expansion of European market.

Piaggio Group is the largest motorcycle manufacturer in Europe, with the production and sales volume of two-wheel motorcycles ranking first in the European market, and it is expanding rapidly in the field of three and four-wheel light-duty commercial vehicles. In 2017, its global sales volume of commercial vehicles hit 176,800 units.

As China’s first commercial vehicle manufacturer, Foton Motor is engaged in the operations of whole-series commercial vehicles, including medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks, light-duty trucks, VANs, pickups, and buses, Foton Motor has established joint ventures with world-leading manufacturers, including Daimler, Cummins, and ZF, and has more than 1,000 sales and service networks for coverage of 110 countries and regions worldwide.

By taking this opportunity, Piaggio Group will realize the upgrade of commercial vehicle products in the European market and at the same time play an active role in its expansion of market business and consolidation of market position. The new four-wheel light-duty commercial vehicle products for the European market are based on the present mini-truck product platform of Foton Motor, inherit the advantages of Foton Motor’s mini-trucks in terms of product quality, driving/riding comfort, and fuel-economy, and combine the world’s cutting-edge technologies to launch all-new logistics and passenger transport solutions and complete the all-new “Last Mile” city logistics ecosphere. In the future, the two parties will, at an appropriate time, develop the new electric vehicles with intelligent interconnectivity system and, as appropriate, enter the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central and South America, and Africa markets.

Borgward Launches the Future-oriented GT BX6 and Electric BXi7

BEIJING, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — German-based automaker Borgward hosted the Borgward Academy of Engineering Ceremony in Beijing on May 9, 2018 at which the automaker the “Borgward Safety Shield” brand value system was showcased. The system was inspired by the corporate mission of being a craftsman true to one’s calling when it came to an immutable focus on rigor, innovation and driver safety since the firm’s inception 100 years ago.

As part of the automaker’s roadmap to the new future for mobility, Borgward plans roll out a unique development strategy focused on improved internal combustion engines and electric drive systems, installation of the in-vehicle speed limit under the European Commission’s Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) directive, in tandem with an expansion of its footprint in the EV, interconnection and automated driving sectors. The carmaker has also launched its industry-leading Three-dimensional Sub-meter Satellite Positioning technology, a key step on the road to automated driving.

Reflecting improvement in the product mix, Borgward also launched two new models, the 4-wheel drive GT SUV BX6 and its first mass-produced electric model, the SUV BXi7, inaugurating the next chapter in the development of the brand.

BX6 with the fastback GT contour

GT SUV BX6

With the fastback GT contour, which accentuates the overall impression of sporty elegance and powerful dynamics, the Borgward BX6 attracts young drivers with its personalized look and aerodynamic optimization. The eagle wing-shaped LED tail lights resemble the wings of an eagle in flight and complements the vehicle’s eagle eye-shaped headlights. In addition, the new 19″ wheel hub further proves BX6’s position as a pioneer in quality and luxury.

Borgward BX6 delivers high performance. All BX6 configurations are powered by a 2.0T high-power turbo-charged in-cylinder direct-injection engine, delivering up to 165kW and a peak torque of 300 Nm. The engine is mated to a 9-mode 6-speed manual-auto gearbox that provides the driver with a rich and smooth gear shifting experience based on road conditions and driver preferences. Additionally, the fuel-economic 7.1 L/100 km performance with a more powerful drive outshines counterparts in the same vehicle class.

All Borgward BX6 configurations come equipped with the 4 MAX intelligent full-time 4WD system that helps the driver navigate slippery roads and medium- to high-speed turns by algorithmically analyzing driving conditions within a 0.12 second-response time and distributing torque smartly.

It will be launched in Middle East and South America before the end of 2018, and beginning of 2019 in Southeast Asia.

SUV BXi7

BXi7 is powered by independent dual motors with up to 94.5 percent efficiency output and a peak torque of 390 Nm, leading their counterparts in the same vehicle class. The vehicle accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 195 km/h.

With an intelligent thermal management system known for three unique advantages, BXi7 addresses decreased driving range and lengthened charging time caused by extremely high or low temperatures. The battery pack maintains high performance at a temperature range from -30ºC to +55ºC. The vehicle can be charged up to 80 percent within 45 minutes and achieves a range of up to 375km.

Borgward now has a strong product lineup consisting of BX5, BX6, BX7, BX7 TS and BXi7. The company is committed to providing consumers with a passionate on-the-road experience, quality of products in line with what today’s car buyers expect from their lifestyle. Meanwhile, Borgward combines the safety space of its proprietary passenger compartment and the extremely rapid response time, which Borgward has dubbed Safety Space and Time.
