The Indigenous Automobile Company (IVM)>> Indeed anything is possible, not all would have believed that cars will be produced in Nigeria, and even if so, not this soon but thanks to IVM because they made it happen. Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company (IVM) is a Nigerian automobile company that is known to produce indigenous cars believed to stand the test of time. IVM runs a plant in Nnewi, Anambra state Nigeria, and aims to be the biggest not just in Nigeria but also in the world auto market.

Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing is the first indigenous automobile company brand in Nigeria, founded in the year 2007 by Innocent Chukuma Nwala, before the invention of the IVM, its founder Innocent Chukuma was a spare part seller. It’s no doubt that being a spare part seller would have greatly helped his knowledge as far as it concerns automobiles. His first automobile design was a motorcycle (the first made in Nigeria motorcycle). These motorcycles were sold for a very low price of about 60,000, this did not reduce his passion. Indeed, there’s no harm in starting small. Over the years the IVM has grown to a standard brand.

Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing Company (IVM) is nicknamed the pride of Africa road, as the state of our roads is put into consideration during its car manufacturing process. Transport brands like god is good (GIGM) have partnered with the Nigerian based brand. Most winners of big brother Naija were gifted with the IVM G40 SUV after emerging as the winner of the show (big brother Naija season 4), it’s really nice as Nigerian’s are appreciating one of its own. Aside from its partnership with GIGM, IVM has also partnered with the sterling bank to help its customers acquire cars through the IVM financial scheme as well as medical and governmental agencies, it’s no doubt that the Nigeria based brand is made for the top.

About 60% of their production is locally made and some others are imported from countries like China, Japan, and Germany.

One major aim of the IVM motors is to produce cars that can be affordable for an average Nigerian rather than going for fairly used Foreign cars (Tokunbo) All of its products are at a warranty of three years.
