NAIROBI, Kenya, March 30 – CFAO Motors Kenya has announced a partnership with Metal Equipment Co. Ltd, which will be the authorised conversion partner for the new improved Safari Landcruiser 79.
Metal Equipment Co. Ltd has met the global standards for conversion, and as a result, a locally converted Safari Landcruiser 79 will be offered with a warranty from the original vehicle manufacturer.
This is due to the lighter design of the body with no alteration to the base of the vehicle.
“We are excited to partner with Metal Equipment Co. Ltd to offer high-quality converted vehicles to the safari market segment,” said Joshua Anya, Deputy Managing Director of CFAO Motors.
“This partnership is in line with our commitment to improving the quality and reducing the cost of ownership of our vehicles to our customers.”
The engineers from CFAO Motors and Metal Equipment Co. Ltd managed to fabricate the body cage and fitted it with fibreglass thus reducing the gross weight by about 800kgs.
Tests have shown improved fuel savings by up to 47 per cent compared to conventional Safari Landcruiser 79 in the market today. Further, a huge reduction in wear and tear on brake pads and suspension.
