Coscharis Motors in partnership with Ford will assemble the Ranger from semi-knockdown kits imported from South Africa. Nigeria therefore becomes the first African country apart from South Africa to produce Ford vehicles and the new plant, based in Ikeja, will produce for its home market only.
Nigeria, which recently overtook SA as Africa’s largest economy, is a priority market for Ford in sub-Saharan Africa. the fact that the Nigerian plant has a capacity of just 5000 units per annum, SA remains an important production base for Ford, and is already operating at full capacity trying to meet global (over 148 countries in export) demand for the Ranger.
