[dropcap]C[/dropcap]ommon sense advocate, Senator Ben Murray Bruce has bought a made-in-Nigeria Kia Soul, one of the locally produced Kia model range and applauded the commitment and determination of Kia in partnering with the federal government to advance the country’s economy.
This is one of the concrete ways of the senator’s resolve to walk the talk to revitalise Nigeria’s economy through the made-in-Nigeria crusade.
The auto industry as one of the major sectors with potentials of rescuing the nation’s economy in its current comatose cannot be left untapped and this has made the senator to encourage the government to patronise the locally assembled vehicles.
Kia Motors Nigeria, a leading automobile company in Nigeria, is a statement said it has an enviable record of offering best-in-class and top of the segment vehicles at an affordable cost to the Nigerian market.
The company said it has again reinforced its unwavering commitment to the industrialisation of Nigerian economy and its indelible contributions to the success of the auto industry by investing heavily in an assembly plant. Its state of the art technologies are arguably at par with any renowned and international plant in the world.

The Chief Commercial Officer of Kia Nigeria, Sandeep Malhotra said the success of the plant is premised on Nigerian government’s favourable disposition to empowering local industry.
He stated that Kia Motors Nigeria remained resolute and committed to the long term investment in the auto industry despite the short term challenges currently faced. The plant has the capacity to produce 27,000 vehicles in a year and there is a provision to increase the production lines which is dependent on the demand.
The sprawling complex has been built to the high standard of KIA Motors Corporation. Culminating in several months of construction, installation of technologically advanced equipment and the training of its staff have snowballed into its first assembly lines that assembles Kia models, such as its best-selling Kia Rio, Cerato, Optima, Sportage and the all-new 2015 Kia Sorento recently unveiled globally amongst others are all products from the plant. With the quality of the vehicles produced locally in the company’s Lagos plant, it’s apparently lucid that there was no compromise on the high standard of the plant and it remains one of the best in the country.
Kia Motors Nigeria’s collaborative stride with the government to boost local economy through its made in Nigeria vehicles has continued to wax stronger in recent times. The company’s investment in the automotive sector of the economy by establishing its assembly plant was hinged on its relentless efforts to partner with the government to further strengthen the economy by diversifying into other sectors that promises great socioeconomic development for the country.
