It just so happens that Innoson Vehicle is not the only local vehicle assembling company operating in the country.

Another company was already in existence before Innosson.  It is called the National Truck Manufacturers Ltd.

About National Truck Manufacturers Ltd:

Widely referred to as Kano Cars, National Truck Manufacturers Limited is a car assembling company that came into production in 1970. The company is located in Kano, and boomed during the  1970s.

During this period, Nigeria also witnessed the establishment of many other assembling plants such as Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited (PAN), Kaduna, Volkswagen of Nigeria Limited (VON), Lagos, Anambra Motor Manufacturing Limited (ANAMMCO), Emene, Enugu, and Steyr Nigeria Limited, Bauchi.

But virtually all these companies later went out of business, except for National Truck Manufacturers Limited. The company has mainly been assembling trucks. And even though it is not as popular as Innoson vehicle, it remains one of Nigeria’s only indigenous car production companies.

In 2010, it was reported that the NTM will start producing over 60,000 trucks in Nigeria.

Does the NTM threaten the presence of Innoson vehicle
Since NTM focuses more on the production of trucks, it may not exactly be a threat to Innoson Vehicle.

Moreover, many Nigerians on Twitter have opined that the company itself isn’t even known. According to them, they were just hearing about it for the first time, thanks to a tweet by a Nigerian lady identified as @ovieali.

Buhari bought N500m worth of cars from Innoson for the FRSC,to boost Nigerian cars,he also asked the Army to buy 40vehicles from them. Next month CBN will start loaning you at 6% if you wish to buy vehicles from KanoCars or Innoson. We spend $8billion on foreign vehicles yearly.

Things might change soon
Since Innoson Vehicle is not limiting its motor production to just cars, SUV’s, buses, and vans alone, NTM might become a competition in the future. Innoson recently introduced its newest trucks earlier this March.
