Mitsubishi launches virtual showroom in Nigeria



Mitsubishi Motors has launched its new Massilia Motors virtual showroom in Nigeria, displaying the brand’s Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and the legendary pick-up.

It says this is for the comfort of its customers, stressing that visiting the car showroom is just a click away.

According to the auto firm, the showroom comes with a lot of benefits as it guarantees safety in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring potential customers can avoid contact until the last phase of their intended purchase.

A statement by the media group of the auto company says the new virtual showroom “also enhances convenience because customers are not restricted to the usual office hours and can take their time to explore the models on display and specifications without feeling pressured by a sales representative.

“Customers are also assured of ease of use as the virtual showroom is not only for the tech-savvy but can be explored by all by just logging on to and clicking on the virtual showroom tab.

“Exploring a model is as easy as selecting the car of your choice, opening the door with just one click, and navigating the car in a 360-degree experience.”

It listed some of the vehicles on display as the Eclipse Cross, Outlander, Pajero, Pajero Sport, ASX, and the L200 pick-up.

A virtual showroom, according to the firm, is a tool for easier decision making, as a prospective customer can share the link with family and friends, unlike the physical visits where only people present can advise.

The company said Massilia Motors had also offered a Whatsapp Business plugin to enable seamless communication with sales executives, adding that this would enhance interaction with customers.

General Manager of Massilia Motors Limited, Mr Olatunji Itiola, was quoted as saying that well-trained sales representatives are available for customers who want to make further inquiries, take a test drive or close deals virtually.

“With the launch of our virtual showroom, we expect more customers to explore our models since the challenge associated with physical presence has been resolved,” he stated.

Massilia Motors is the joint venture of the CFAO Group and the Chanrai Group uniting forces to deliver customer satisfaction.

With operations run by the CFAO group, Massilia Motors is the sole distributor of Mitsubishi Motors in Nigeria.

Gas-powered mass transit buses set for operation in Nigeria



A revolutionary mass transit operation using ECO-Green buses is soon to be introduced in some Nigerian city centres.
The buses already being used in major cities of the world are powered by flare gas recovered compressed natural gas (CNG), which is usually flared in the Niger Delta, Nigeria and causing environmental pollution and crisis in the region.
Chief Executive Officer of Austrian Technologies Nigeria Limited, Johann Rieger, said the ECO-green buses had been built on European standards for critical climate and infrastructure as in Nigeria.
According to him, the buses are the safest and most economic public mass transit vehicles that can reduce carbon footprints by 95 per cent and operating cost by 30 per cent.
Specifically, he said the buses, coming with a lifespan of at least 15 years, had been equipped with engines of higher emission standards (Euro 5) with no toxic, smog or smoke, guaranteeing reduced noise and lower fuel costs. In Malaysia, those buses run 15 years with over 90% average uptime.
Rieger also said the project would guarantee local capacity building of the buses through extensive transfer of the technology and know-how within a short time of the entire value chain.
Indeed, he said, “Up to 70 per cent of all components of the eco-green buses should be manufactured or assembled locally within five years of operation including the first green engine.”

He said the project would come with uniquely designed and efficient drivers’ safety training that would allow safe increase of passengers’ capacity by 30 per cent in accordance with international standards of public transport.

He said the vehicle had been built with the highest operational standards and expected to save the operator a minimum of $25,000 in comparison to any other large capacity bus.

He noted that six eco-green buses would do the job of at least 10 biggest BRT buses currently being operated in Nigeria and by switching over to locally available natural gas, he said at least $20,000 of foreign exchange is also saved.

He noted that driving with natural gas is the most environmentally friendly solution wherever this green fuel is available. They partnered already with local CNG suppliers who are ready to invest and guarantee 24/7 availability of the gas directly inside the bus depot of operators anywhere in the country.

About 90 per cent uptime, and maximum efficiency and transparency would be guaranteed through permanent real-time monitoring of each bus by eco- telematics and extended after-sale service with 24/7 spare parts availability and directly including service and wear parts for the first two years, said Rieger.

Some of the unique features of an ECO-green bus are given as roof mounted CNG cylinder with up to 500km range and gas leakage detection system and tyre pressure monitoring system.
The air and surfaces in their buses is permanently and chemical free sanitized by their ECO Viroxx air conditioning system with bipolar ionization.
Others are speed limiter, alcohol test and driver’s fatigue detection with driver’s biometric identification, CCTV camera system that can be directly integrated into the city surveillance system reverse camera; handicapped ramp and wheelchair area.

Rieger listed some of the technical features of the bus as electronic dashboard with extended eco-telematics system, real time driver’s feedback on safety and economic driving; on board video education in cooperation with UNICEF.
The bus is said to come on the same bus platform as 8.7m for 60 passengers; 10.5m for 80 passengers, 12m for 100 people and 18m accommodating 160 passengers.

We have enabled over 400 microfinance institutions spread across the entire country, with the capability for fully-digital banking operations.

Some details about the new auto loan arrangement provided in a statement indicate that the credit sourcing process starts with the listing of prequalified vehicles from the dealers on Autochek’s platform.
Potential customers have the opportunity to select their choice from a pool of cars that have gone through a 150 point inspection process carried out by Autochek’s accredited technical experts.
