Junction Mall holds maiden auto show, (Monday, March 2, 2015)pg 20

The maiden edition of the Junction Shopping Mall Auto Show ended last Sunday at Nungua in Accra, with a number of patrons test-driving some of the vehicles.

The one-week show, organised by the Junction Shopping Mall, brought together automotive dealers, auto financing companies and prospective customers.

“We want to create the awareness about the ease with which you can acquire a vehicle. We want to make our auto show a one-stop shop for vehicle acquisition,” the Junction Shopping Mall Centre Manager, Mr George Amanquah, told the Daily Graphic

While APSONIC Motors, dealers in various Chinese brands; Silver Star Auto, Mercedez merchants; Alliance Motors, dealers in Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles, and Toyota Ghana represented the auto dealers, Stanbic Bank and Universal Merchant Bank (UMB) were on the financing side. 

Among the vehicles that were on display were Range Rover Sports, Land Rover Discovery, Jaguar XF, Toyota Corolla and Avensis, and fleets of Mercedez Benz. 

“We want to offer shoppers convenience. When it comes to vehicle acquisition. It is a big issue, especially with respect to financing, but we want to bridge that gap,” he said.

“In the days gone by vehicles were luxuries, but today, they are a necessity. What we are doing is that once you walk in, you can actually drive out as there is a one-stop shop here for everything,” he added. 

Organisers of the show hope to make it a quarterly event, and this would probably place the show on top of Ghana’s auto shows.

Patrons and exhibitors 
Currently auto shows in the country are inconsistent and far between. 

A Marketing Assistant of Alliance Motors, Mr Ali Rashid Salman, said the company chose to be part of the show because of the strategic location of the mall and the fact that the target market of Alliance Motors also patronised the mall. 

A patron, Kwaku Danso-Abiam, praised the organisers for bringing the auto dealers and financiers under the same roof.

“It is cool to see all these brands at the same place. But I hope in the near future they would increase the number of dealers as well as add some spare part dealers,” he said. 
Patrons had the opportunity to have a feel of the vehicles on the Nungua-Tema Beach Road when they were given the opportunity to test-drive the vehicles.
