The vehicle leverages lessons learned over 50 years of evolution and combines them with cutting edge technologies to deliver comfort at every turn. It features the most sophisticated chassis technology of any vehicle.

Also present at the Customer launch event held at her Nairobi residence was the UK High Commissioner, Jane Marriott, who noted that “The automotive industry in Kenya continues to be of importance to the UK with vehicles ranking first among the top 5 goods exported from the UK to Kenya, by the end of 2021, making up 13.2% of all UK goods exported to Kenya, at a value of £41.8 million. This improvement from 2020 when it ranked second among the Top 5 imports from UK shows the strong resilience exhibited by the sector, fostered by companies such as Inchcape.”
