Rana Motors launches Kia Carens 


Rana Motors has launched Kia Carens as the latest addition to its Kia line–up in the country’s automobile market.

The seven-seater vehicle was designed to offer an exceptional family experience and give customers more comfort.

It was designed with a bold attitude and space-age sophistication with a 1.5 engine capacity and remote-controlled engine feature.

The Carens is 4540mm long, 1800mm wide, and 1708mm tall and has bigger exterior dimensions giving a car a stronger road presence. 

It also has a 2780mm long wheelbase which makes the car more stable at high speeds and gives better legroom in the back seat and offers class-leading cabin space with plush 3-row seating comfort. 

The Chief Operating Officer of the company, Kassem Odaymat in an interview at the launch in Accra added that: “Be it the spacious seating or the remarkably large boot space, the KIA Carens gives you the space you will ever need for your family adventures. It also comes with class-leading robust 10 safety features along with additional features as standard across all variants”. 

“The vehicles will be available to the public in all five showrooms of the company including, Accra, Spintex, Tema, Kumasi and Takoradi and we also have very good after-sales services for easy access for our customers. 

“The Carens is the most economical and value-for-money currently on the Ghanaian auto market. For the tourism industry, it is the best for any tour operator to use across the length and breadth of the country” he said. 

He added that his outfit is working with KIA with the possibility that the second batch will be assembled in the country. 

He disclosed that since the RANA Motors Assembly Plant at Amasaman in the Ga West Municipality in the Greater Accra Region was inaugurated in May this year about 200 units of vehicles were assembled. 

“I can assure you that RANA Motors is selling all the models manufactured locally without any challenges since production started because the vehicles have the same standard as those imported or the ones manufactured in all the KIA assembly plants across the world,” he assured. 

He said plans are underway to train local folks to build their capacity so they can fully participate in the automotive assembling space.
