THE Nigerian auto industry is set to witness a boost with the entry of a fully Nigerian auto company, the Nord brand of automobiles cutting across passenger and commercial vehicles.

This is just as Nord Automobiles Limited, last week, launched five locally-assembled models and after-sales services across the country.

The launch was spearheaded by CEO of the company, Mr. Oluwatobi Ajayi, at the Landmark event centre, Victoria Island Lagos.

The five Nord models unveiled are the Nord sedan A3; the Nord SUV A5; Nord Flit mini bus; Nord Max pick up, and Nord Tank pickup.

Ajayi explained at the launch that Nord was born out of the need to check the importation of substandard vehicles into Nigeria, and to drastically reduce the huge amounts spent annually on automobile importation.
