Jiji-Cars45 and GAC Motor Nigeria have signed a partnership deal that will make affordable car loans available to Nigerians.
Speaking during the GAC Motor Nigeria and Cars45 test drive unlimited in Lagos recently, PR and Marketing Head of Jiji Nigeria, Majolie Obaje, said the soaring inflation in Nigeria and high foreign exchange rates had increased the prices of imported vehicles.
According to him, this has made dealers stop car importation, their showrooms are still full of unsold stocks, because people are not buying cars as much as they used to.
She said, “It is possible for Nigerians to own brand-new cars using Cars45 competitive funding options. We are moving Nigerians from a space of having to wait for too long to own a new car. Our goal is to ensure that every home in Nigeria has a good car and our partnership with GAC will make sure that it happens.”
Speaking further, she said customers that want to upgrade their old GAC cars could take the old cars to the over 70 Cars45 inspection centres in Nigeria for evaluation and sell the car to be able to buy a new one.
“We have also improved the turnaround time for selling used cars in Nigeria. In the past, it takes a minimum of six weeks to sell used cars, but it has been brought down to 24 hours. That is the value that we bring as a brand, and we want people to be confident enough to go for a car of their choice,” she said.
