Al-Futtaim delivers 100 Toyota cars to driving centre
Dubai, July 2, 2014
Al-Futtaim Motors, a member of the Al-Futtaim Group, the leading UAE business conglomerate, recently delivered 100 new Toyota Yaris sedans to Al Ahli Driving Centre.
With the vehicles now constituting 20 per cent of its total fleet, Al Ahli Driving Centre will be the first company in the UAE to offer people the chance to learn to drive in the all-new Yaris Sedan.
“Since it was introduced in late 2013, the all-new Yaris Sedan has proven to be one of the most popular vehicles in its category. The popularity and potential of this vehicle amongst the UAE’s fleet operators is significant and we expect more driving schools to follow suit in the near future,” said Jon Williams, managing director of Al-Futtaim Motors, at the handover ceremony.
Adel Noori Jaber, managing partner, Al Ahli Driving Centre said: “Three very important factors have led us to purchase the Yaris Sedan; its class leading safety features, low total cost of ownership and reliability. It’s very important that our cars have the best safety features as a lot of our students are first time-drivers.”
“Our cars will also be driven for many kilometres over several years so they have to be extremely durable and cost effective when repairs and maintenance are required. All these factors are ingrained in the DNA of Toyota and the Yaris Sedan,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
