GAC Motor, China’s leading automaker, is stepping up its expansion plan in the Gulf region, with launches in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
The car manufacturer has opened a sales and service centre in the UAE, debuted the GAC Motor brand in Saudi Arabia and launched the GAC Motor GS7 in Kuwait.
GAC Motor’s sales and service centre opened in Dubai after it signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Gargash Group to jointly explore the UAE market.
GAC Motor also recently launched its brand in Saudi Arabia and set up a sales service and experience shop in the country. An agreement has been signed with Saudi dealer Aljomaih Automotive Company (ACC) to build four sales network and service points in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam.
GAC Motor also released its GS7 model in the Kuwaiti market this month, the company said in a statement.
