U.S. Auto Giant Chevrolet Second Franchise Establishment in Mazar
KABUL – The U.S. auto giant Chevrolet’s second franchise was established on Monday in Mazar-e-Sharif, capital of northern Balks province, officials said. This will be the second official branch of Chevrolet with brand new cars made in the United States, along with spare parts. With prices ranging from $15,000 to $60,000, officials of Chevrolet Company in Afghanistan are hoping to find some space in the Toyota dominated market of Afghanistan.
“There two reasons for establishment of our office in Mazar-e-Sharif, first is the good security of Mazar-e-Sharif and secondly, demand for buying these cars is higher in Mazar-e-Sharif”, said David Newman, Sales Director of Chevrolet. A spare parts center along with a workshop was also established alongside the new sales center.
The first franchise of the Chevrolet was established in Kabul in August this year. Though Japanese carmaker Toyota has a monopoly in the Afghan auto market, officials of Chevrolet’s branch office in Afghanistan have said that they have closely studied the Afghan market before making investments and are confident that by offering good quality cars and the best “after sales service,” it would be able to make a place for itself in the auto market of Afghanistan.
