Peugeot, the second largest car manufacturer in Europe, will be returning to the Kenyan market after a three-year hiatus, through their newly appointed importer, Urysia Limited.
A household name in Kenya over the last 60 years, especially the 504, Peugeot have granted the exclusive distribution rights to Urysia, who have opened a fully operational service centre on Nairobi’s Loita Street.
“Kenya is a pivotal hub in the East and Central African region and we are excited to be back in this market after a 3 year absence. We would like to assure our customers in Kenya and the region that Urysia has our full backing and support. For this reason, we are extending, for the first time, expanded vehicle and mileage warranties for new Peugeot vehicles sold in Kenya”, said Jean-Yves Dossal, the Automobiles Peugeot Director for Africa – Asia – Pacific.
The service centre manned by some of Africa’s best Peugeot speciality technicians and equipped with the most advanced tooling and equipment, will provide customers with diagnostic services for their vehicles, service and spare parts and accessories sales among others.
According to a statement, the centre will be linked around the clock to Peugeot’s diagnostic platform in Europe.
Claude Mwende, the CEO of Urysia Limited said: “We would like to ensure that Peugeot customers receive value at our service and support centre. This will include having competitive rates for our services.”
“Through the year we will be launching for the first time in Africa four completely new segment models. We will also be looking at another 2 new segment models in 2012.”
