Ghana's automobile industry has been boosted with the launch of an auto financing promo by Japan Motors Trading Company Limited (JMTC), in collaboration with Stanbic Bank.

Known as O percent deposit, the new promo will now allow customers to purchase any of JMTC's products, such as Nissan, Foton and Yamaha, without making any deposit, and with the financing to be spread over 60 months.

Launching the promo at JMTC's new showroom at the Silver Star Tower in Accra, Mr. Amine Kabbara, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Nissan Brand, JMTC, observed that one major concern in the automobile business was financing, as such, partnering Stanbic Bank to run this promo will enable the company fulfill its objective of making purchasing of brand new Nissan, Yamaha and Foton vehicles stress free.

Stanbic Bank is a trusted bank with the best rates and vast experience in the auto financing sector, as such, we are proud to partner such [an] institution.”

Mr. Kabbara seized the occasion to announce an on-going promo on two most-selling SUVs in the Nissan brand. The Nissan Patrol Y61, with a GH¢10,000 discount, and the latest Nissan X-Trail, discounted for GH¢7,500, informing that aside the discount, Stanbic Bank will spread the payment plan and make it easy to purchase, as part of the O percent deposit promo.
