PAN’s Head of Corporate Communication, Nura Maska, said his company will be displaying locally assembled automobiles, including the new Peugeot 508, 301 and the Expert Tepee all assembled in the PAN Kaduna plant.
And in order to make the acquisition of new vehicles easier for prospective buyers, PAN has introduced the Peugeot Vehicle Acquisition Finance Scheme (PVAFS) currently going on with Access Bank, FCMB and JAIZ Bank.
And to further encourage low and middle income earners to buy brand new vehicles, PAN will have the Peugeot 301 conspicuously displayed. The Peugeot 301 is a silent power horse that is delivering all the ruggedness of the former 504 and at the same time giving more comfort and safety features. The 301 is assembled in Kaduna by PAN Nigeria.
Available in three trims-Access, Active and Allure, the Peugeot 301 comes in two engine variants including 1.2 and 1.6 litre power plants.
The 1.2 litre engine comes standard with manual transmission, while the 1.6 litre engine version is equipped with automatic transmission.
Taking into consideration the tropical weather, Peugeot has ensured that all versions of 301 come with factory fitted air conditioning system, eve as the Allure version is equipped with electronic system.
When it comes to ground clearance, the car is not a push over, as ample ground clearance is provided so it can dominate all terrain, be it smooth or rough.
Coming with a 15 inch alloy rim, and reinforced suspension, it fits perfectly on the Nigerian roads.
Other outstanding features of the car which was nominated for Car of The Year at the last Nigerian Auto Journalists Awards (NAJA), include rear parking sensor, touches of chrome, electronic windows and dual air bags etc.
It also has Anti-Lock Braking System (which is a safety feature), power steering, height adjustable steering, giving room for easy adaptability to different drivers irrespective of their heights; radio/MP3/CD player/USB Bluetooth as well as centralized key/locking.
301, just like other Peugeot models are very environmental friendly. The engine’s emission pass successfully passed stringent environmental tests in Europe, even as the fuel efficiency is arguably the best in its category.
PAN Nigeria, Kaduna markets the Peugeot 301, and other Peugeot models through its accredited dealers spread across the country, just as it does not compromise on quality after-sales services.
