Being the automotive partner of choice for SMEs in the UAE, Al-Futtaim Motors offers comprehensive packages and tailor-made solutions that suit the needs of its various SME customers across many industries.
Described as the fastest growing department within Al-Futtaim Motors, the Toyota SME team has been registering continuous growth over the past three years. Toyota SME recorded 27% growth in 2013, due to the many new vehicles that were launched, offering excellent fuel economy, the lowest total cost of ownership and the highest resale value in the market.
While Corolla, the world’s best-selling car has always enjoyed a great appeal among SMEs, it registered a substantial growth of 66% in the SME sales in 2013 compared to the previous year.
In the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segment, Hilux pick-up has seen a staggering sales increase of 102% in the first quarter of 2014, a healthy sign of the economic boom being experienced in the UAE.
