Jet brand gets EV promoter of the year
Jet Systems Limited, assemblers of Jet brand of vehicles in Nigeria, has joined the ivy league of vehicle manufacturers impacting the African environment when it received from the Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA), an award for Electric Vehicle (EV) promoter of the year.
This recognition, which comes a few years after its entry into the Nigeria automotive market, was announced at the Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA) Award held in Lagos recently.
The organisers of the event said that the award was bestowed on Jet Systems Limited for its efforts at building very functional, strong and durable electric vehicles, not just in response to government’s policy but as a strategic investment towards building international capacity to contain global warming through less dependency on fossil fuel.
The leadership at Jet Motor Company told reporters that the JET EVs were products of many years of quiet but intensive research, which are already positively impacting the experience of African automobile users.
Director of Sales and Marketing, JET Motor Company, Sanjay Rupani, added that the firm’s other product, the JET Mover, a luxury, durable, yet affordable minibus built specifically for African roads, has also received tremendous reviews by industry watchers and users.
Rupani said: “The JET Mover EV is a combination of the best in design and technology practices from Europe and Asia, tropicalised for Africa. The shock absorbers are stronger than average, ground clearance is higher and tyre sizes are bigger. Generally, our testing has led us to see what is best for the Nigerian and African market and that is what we have built with JET Mover Evs.”
