Go Auto plans big growth
Besides the launch of its Haval M4 compact sport-utility vehicle (SUV) in January, GAM is also planning to launch a mid-sized SUV in the middle of next year and a premium-sized SUV by the fourth quarter of 2015.
As well, it will also keep a keen eye on retaining competitive pricing in light of the introduction of the goods and services tax in April next year, comany chief executive officer Ahmad Azam Sulaiman told the Star newspaper.
He said the company had got firm orders totalling 2,500 units for the Haval M4 ahead of its official launching in next month.
“Our factory engineering team is on alert at all times to prepare for expansion once demand exceeds 20,000 units. Concurrently, we will establish our research and development facilities to facilitate localisation activities as well as some derivative changes to all the models that we are going to introduce in 2015.
“The export market is also one of our key strategies next year. We are looking at a total of 2,000 units for Thailand and Cambodia,” he added.
