Kingo Long buses enter domestic market


King Long buses are making headway into the Nigerian commercial bus market where competition appears to be getting more interesting by the day. Positioned as the “affordable luxury” brand, the King Long buses serve in three categories: Kingo Hummer (newly introduced), Kingwin Standard and the Ambulance models.

With King Long, the motto is “luxury as standard” and this has been proven with the Kingwin Standard which has carved a niche for itself in its segment. King Long puts passenger comfort and driver convenience at the forefront of all its designs to ensure comfortable trip for both passengers and drivers alike.

The Kingo Hummer which is the recently introduced model of the King Long brand into the Nigerian Market boast of next generation engines with better power, torque and mileage.

It comes in 2.4-litre and 2.7-litre engine capacity with a captivating design and generous interior space and offers unprecedented fuel efficiency, luxurious reclining leather seats, Xenon dip beams, low set fog lamps and easily accessible rear lamps.

Smooth ride is guaranteed as King Long employed transverse double spring independent suspension in front and leaf spring suspension at the rear coupled with powerful engine and factory fitted DVD player for the smoothest restful ride.

CFAO CICA Nigeria Limited, the sole distributor of the King Long brand in Nigeria, is reinforcing its commitment to win more share in the commercial bus segment with the delivery of the New Kingo Hummer as disclosed by Idris Siyaka, its commercial manager, and has put in place all necessary in terms of after –sales comprising spares, maintenance and warranty.

Highlighting Kingo’s unique selling points as price advantage, ruggedness, durability, fuel efficiency, comfort and economy, He said “buying a new bus can reduce the incidents of road accidents to the barest minimum”.

According to him the company has put together many incentives aimed at encouraging their customers to acquire their buses, including flexible payment plans. Users have come to realise that instead of buying used buses which have no warranty and assurance for value, they could use almost the same amount or add a little to purchase a brand new Kingo Hummer bus that could last many years and guarantee return on their investments.

We at CFAO are at the fore-front of the campaign for accident reduction in the country. People who buy old buses can add little amount and acquire brand new Kingo Hummer that can last a very long time. This would not only reduce accidents but also keep the environment free of pollution.

Disclosing that the buses were built to the highest industry standard, the Commercial Manager further said, Kingo is built for Nigerian roads. He however added that with an ultra modern workshop in Lagos and mobile workshops, the company responds quickly to customer demands within 24 hours adding that part of their expansion plan is to build workshops in all the six geopolitical locations across the country very soon to cater for their customers’ needs.
