How Chinese Chery is capturing Lagos automotive market


The preferences of Nigerian automotive consumers are beginning to change especially in the choice of brand-new vehicles to buy.

In Nigeria’s new car market, demand is shifting towards Chinese brands.

Companies that primarily opt for brand-new cars for their staff now find it budget-friendly to buy Chinese cars rather than new cars from German, South Korean, Japanese and American car makers that are more on the luxury and expensive end.

One such Chinese automaker that is now dominating Nigeria’s new car market is Chery, which is now deploying cutting-edge technology and marketing strategy to capture the automotive market in Nigeria.

Guests were invited to unleash their creativity as they painted their interpretations of the iconic Chery logo, adding their personal touch to the artistic narrative.
