Mutawa Alkazi to participate in AutoMoto Company to display its newly launched models from GAC Motor

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 21: Mutawa Alkazi Company announces its participation today in the annual AutoMoto car show which takes between the 21st and 25th of January at the 360 Mall. The car show, which falls under the patronage of Shaikh Salman Sabah Al Salem Al Humoud Al Sabah, will showcase over 70 vehicles (ranging sedans to SUVs) from more than 25 brands under one roof, and will also give the 30,000 daily visitors to the mall a chance to have their first encounter with Kuwait’s newest car brand — GAC Motor. As the first major car show of the year, Mutawa Alkazi - a major player in the automotive sector in Kuwait for over 55 years and winner of many awards, including the prestigious Customer Satisfaction and Sales Satisfaction Index Awards for three consecutive years — seized the opportunity to display its newly arrived models from GAC Motor — the trendy GS5 SUV, and the elegant GA5 sedan. On hand will be qualified salesmen ready to demonstrate the different features and advantages the cars have over their direct competitors.  Test drive cars will also be available to provide first-hand experience of the new cars.

GAC Motor is a subsidiary of GAC Group — and sets itself apart from most other manufactures in that it as strong partnerships, joint ventures with and manufactures cars for Honda, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Fiat, and commercial vehicles for Hino. Capitalizing on the years of experience of producing cars for other brands, GAC Group launched its own brand — GAC Motor, in 2007. In order to ensure production of a quality vehicle, GAC Group not only uses the experience gained from manufacturing cars for other companies, it also sources various components of its cars from international suppliers such as the electronic stability program and engine management systems from Bosch (Germany), front brakes from Continental (Germany), Front and Rear bumpers from Visteon (USA), 5-speed automatic transmission from Aisin (Japan), air conditioning from Denso (Japan), seatbelts, airbags, rear brakes, and hydraulic power systems from TRW (USA).

This strategy yielded impressive results, as in 2011, GAC broke the sales record for the most sold Chinese vehicle and saw an impressive 92.9% growth in sales in 2012 - a testament to both the quality and reliability of the car. Building on this success, GAC Motor’s strategy is to introduce three new car models in 2014 and five new models in 2015, in order to effectively compete with its American, Japanese, and Korean rivals. The cars launched on display at the car show include the GA5, a mid-sized sedan featuring a 2.0 VTML engine, hydraulic power steering, multi-link independent rear suspension, 5AT transmission, leather seats, sunroof, reverse rearview system, GPS navigation system, dual lens HID head lamps, and an aerodynamic form designed for a smooth and quiet ride.

The other model on show is the snow-leopard-inspired GS5 - an urban SUV. This vehicle features an i-4WD real time 4WD system, 5 speed automatic transmission, intelligent control unit with navigation, European SUV chassis with 4WD independent suspension, keyless entry and engine start button, an ultra large capacity trunk (480L/1350L), and is illuminated by 100 LED lights. On the occasion of the show, Managing Director at Mutawa Alkazi Company, Mr. Omar Alkazi commented, “We are grateful to have such a prestigious car show to showcase our new cars at the beginning of the year. We would like to use this event to introduce and familiarize the public with this new brand. GAC Motor as a brand will prove itself to the local market as a manufacturer of high quality vehicles and we invite everybody to come visit our showrooms in Al Rai, Shuwaikh Industrial Area, and Ahmadi to see the new cars on display.”
