The company intends to achieve this by including insurance, tracking, and other aftersales partners.
“This move will give our customers a wider variety of cars as we will onboard brand-new cars on the platform as well as showroom cars that have been used locally,” said Bilhah Muriithi, Autochek Kenya’s Country Manager.
The collaboration will also see Subaru Kenya become a service partner for Autochek and it will provide services such as providing repairs, sell spare parts and offering inspections for the new cars.
