To better adapt to market developments in Africa, GAC Motor is constantly 
optimizing vehicle designs based on local road conditions to guarantee reliable 
quality and performance. Most models have been specifically adjusted to meet 
the requirements of performing on bumpy and muddy roads, such as by adding 
higher chassis to improve passing clearance. With its excellent product quality 
and high adaptability to the African market, GAC Motor won the favor of local 
consumers and has been the best-selling Chinese brand in Nigeria.

GAC Motor achieved its market success by sticking to its quality-first 
principle. For five years in a row, GAC Motor has been ranked first among all 
Chinese brands in J.D. Power Asia's IQS study. GS8, the most popular model in 
Nigeria, is rated five-star by C-NCAP (China-New Car Assessment Program). It 
has also established strategic partnerships with the world's top suppliers and 
recruited top talent to strictly monitor quality, which will boost the 
company's expansion in the African market and the world at large.
