Go Auto-Higer Ace is the first brand for Go Automobile Manufacturing commercial vehicle range and was launched late last year.
Go Automobile Manufacturing Sdn Bhd (GAM),the manufacturing arm of Go Auto Group of Companies, recently launched its commercial vehicle, Go Auto-Higer Ace, at IOI Citymall Putrajaya.
Go Auto-Higer Ace is the first brand for this company’s commercial vehicle range and was launched late last year by Dato’ SM Azli Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, Executive Director of Go Auto, in an event witnessed by Dato’ IR Mohamad Dalib, former director of Automotive Engineering, Road Transport Department.
The launch marked Go Auto’s entry into the commercial vehicle market with 18-seater and 15-seater models that have a roomy cabin with features to provide comfort for passengers and turn ‘every ride into a wonderful journey’. It comes in 2 variants – 3.0L and 2.5L engine – with prices ranging from RM138,500 to RM145,000 in Peninsular Malaysia.
“Go Auto-Higer Ace is our commercial van with 18- and 15-seater capacity that is fitted with 6- and 5-speed manual transmissions, and DK5 and DK4 high performance engines with Japanese technology. The dual sliding door design makes it easier for passengers to move in and out of the van. The van also has safety features in the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) to ensure protection for the driver and passengers. The Go Auto-Higer Ace also features heavy duty components that are usually catered to buses such as the axles, clutches and propeller shaft,” said Dato’ Azli.
“We would like everyone to experience the comfort offered by our Go Auto-Higer Ace van. The van was designed to suit the needs and demands in the industry, and could be customised to serve as a school van, employee transporter, ambulance and more depending on what our clients want. In addition, the high roof window van ensures interior spaciousness so that passengers could move about inside without having to bend too much. As a result, it provides a pleasurable experience and drive,” he continued.
In dimensions, the Go Auto-Higer Ace is 5990mm long, 1880mm wide, 2285mm tall and has a wheelbase of 3720mm. With its 200mm ground clearance, it not only provides adequate ride height when going over rough terrain or bumps but also elevated visibility for the driver.
“Moving forward, our master plan for commercial vehicles is to provide a comprehensive range of public and private transportation solutions such as narrow vans, coasters, minibuses and coaches. On our collaboration through manufacturing the Go Auto-Higer Ace, we have used the technology acquired from Higer, China to produce our commercial vehicles,” added Dato’ Azli.
“We target to sell 400 units in 2019. To-date, Go Auto has 3 master dealers in Car2U Sdn Bhd, Ang Trading & Motor Credit Sdn Bhd and KEC Sdn Bhd. We plan to expand our network to 12 sales outlets and 37 service outlets nationwide, and they are in different stages of implementation,” he said.
