For his entrepreneurial exertions and single-minded commitment to create a truly Nigerian automobile brand symbolised by the Innoson 4-wheel drive, Innoson Is LEADERSHIP Product of the Year 2014.

On October 15, 2010, President Goodluck Jonathan officially commissioned Innoson Motors range of products which comprise 17 and 43 seater buses (luxury buses, midi-buses and mini-buses), pick-up vans and sports utility vehicles.

Made in Nigeria Cars: Recently, cars were added to the Innoson Motors range. The vehicles are about 80 to 90 percent made in Nigeria as all the components are designed and moulded by the company while other parts are sourced from several automotive parts companies in Nnewi, Anambra State, Nigeria. Innoson Group Nigeria Limited, a Nigerian Automobile Company which manufactures the vehicles dates back to 1986 when it started with the importation of motorcycle parts into the country.

How it all began: By early 2000s the company decided to start the local production of motorcycle parts and its assembling in Nnewi in order to reduce the price of motorcycles in Nigeria. The success of this motivated Innoson to go for the bigger picture which is the manufacturing of vehicles.

THE House of Representatives Committee on local content, in appreciation of the effort, has approved the use of Innoson vehicles for its official activities.  The approval was endorsed by the law makers after visiting the motor plant at Nnewi, Anambra State.
