The vehicle is set to sell based on varying cost specifications. For example, the Trendline model will be going for Sh. 4.5 million while the Highline model will be going for Sh. 5.5 million.

“We are committed to further expanding our line of locally assembled cars to grow our brand in the country,” said Matt Olivier, Director Business Development DT Dobie.

In 2016 DT Dobie launched the Volkswagen Polo Vivo which is the first locally assembled German car in Kenya. This was followed by the Caddy Kombi and the Tiguan.

The launching of this vehicle came hot on the heels of the unveiling of the first locally assembled Mahindra vehicles. The Mahindra Scorpio Single and Double cabin pick-ups were assembled at the Associated Vehicle Assembly (AVA Kenya) plant in Mombasa. AVA is a wholly- owned subsidiary of Simba Corporation Limited.

Other global automobile brands that are locally assembled are Toyota and Peugeot.
