UAZ has opened its first dealer centre in Lebanon

 

RusAutoNewsCom.- As reported by the company press office, Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant has opened its first official dealer centre in Lebanon in September 2018. Patriot and Pickup SUVs and the light truck Profi have been presented at the opening ceremony in Beirut, along with UAZ Hunter, which is already well-known in the Middle-East.

The local company Ultimate Fahed has become the partner of UAZ, which will carry out the imports and distribution of the SUVs, as well as their services under warranty. The new distributor in Lebanon aims reach an annual sales figure of a few hundred vehicles.

The exports director of UAZ Andrei Dorofeev has made the following statement: “Lebanon itself is seen as a modest market, where the annual new vehicle sales figure remains below the 50,000 units mark. However, the country is perceived as the trendmaker in the Arab world, as well as historically being located at the junction of trade routes. Therefore, by establishing an official UAZ distributor network in Beirut, we expect to expand our vehicle sales in the neighbouring countries”.
