Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) Co. Ltd is the first wholly indigenous and leading vehicles manufacturing company in Nigeria. That these vehicles are locally manufactured in Nigeria has automatically become a plus to Nigerians because its ranges of vehicles are Nigerian specs and not Japanese specs, European specs or American specs.
American specs cars indicate that the vehicles are produced mainly to be used in America and therefore the American environment was put in considerations while producing the cars, so also the same consideration was given when producing Japanese and European cars.
Today, Nigeria is known as dumping ground for imported/foreign cars and most of these cars are not suitable to the Nigerian environment. Nigeria with a motorization rate of 81%, with the total number of cars on the road up to 14million, Nigerian motor users have not really had the opportunity of driving specially made vehicles specifically manufactured for Nigerian roads until the entrance of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Ltd.
Today, IVM is using the concept of regionalisation in the production of its vehicles by making sure that it considers the Nigerian environment, local tastes and consumer preferences in Nigeria as well as African region during the production of its vehicles.
With the vehicle manufacturing plant located here in Nigeria, IVM ensures it gets feedback from the users of IVM in order to know their views on their IVM experience and by these feedbacks they seek better ways to improve on the tastes and preferences of their customers to suit the Nigerian environment.

With this, the circulation of coolant prevents the engine from overheating.
