THE birth of Massilia Motors, (a joint venture between CFAO and Kewalram Chanrai group), distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Nigeria, has been recognised by the Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA) as a remarkable achievement in the auto industry in 2017.
This is just as the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, which was unveiled earlier in the year, was also given a special award as a notable entry of the year in the Sports Utility Vehicles segment. These awards were handed over to the Deputy Managing Director of Massilia Motors, Mr. Kunle Jaiyesimi and Marketing Manager, Ms Funmi Abiola at an award ceremony held on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Speaking on the awards, Chairman of NAJA, Mr. Frank Kintum, said the coming of Massilia Motors was recognised because the distributorship of Mitsubishi vehicles in Nigeria was now streamlined, as the two hitherto distributors now trade under one umbrella.
According to him, this development will ultimately benefit Mitsubishi customers who are bound to get better services in both sales and after-sales. The DMD of Massilia Motors stated that his company was delighted to be so recognised as the awards would propel the company to keep delivering quality auto services to its customers.
In a related development, Massilia Motors has unveiled an end of year offer to its customers and prospective buyers. The offer tagged the big end of year deal, enables customers to buy the Mitsubishi Pajero for N22.5m only, an offer that is very tempting, considering the price of other Japanese Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) in the country.
According to the company, the promo which started December 1, will run till December 30, 2017, and customers stand to enjoy three years manufacturer’s warranty or 100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
General Manager, Sales and Marketing of Massilia Motors Limited, Mr. Navin Chander, stated that customers who acquire the Pajero, would also be entitled to free service for one year or 30,000 kilometers.
Customers are also to benefit from the free registration of all Mitsubishi Pajeros acquired during this period, coupled with the delivery of all Customs documentations, to avoid unnecessary harassment while enjoying their vehicles.
Beside sales of Mitsubishi vehicles, Massilia Motors Limited, is reputed to maintain solid after-sales facilities, fortified with genuine spare parts, in different parts of the country.
