Jelani moments of giving kudos to the untiring efforts of local automotive assemblers like coscharis Motors was preceded by a remark from the Coscharis group general manager, marketing and communications, Abiona Babarinde who said, “if you recall in July 2019, we formally announced our partnership with the Renault Group to represent their auto brands in Nigeria. We equally showcased our ultra-modern semi-knocked-down assembly plant located at our group head office in Awoyaya, Lagos.

As at today, we are excited to say that Coscharis Motors has since been rolling out two name plates of the Renault brand, namely Renault Logan and Renault Duster, from the assembly plant.

The Koleos is designed with a sense of detail and personality enhanced by its sleek appearance and athletic curves. Behind its chic urban styling, Koleos has the DNA of a true 4X4.
