Last week, Triesenburg Auto Corporation or TAC, a company under the LICA Auto Group, and the exclusive distributor of JAC Motors in the country, launched several vehicle models that include sedan, wide size range of Sport Utility Vehicles , and Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV).
The complete product line of JAC vehicles was unveiled during the brand’s official launch last March 21 at JAC Alabang dealership located at Commerce Avenue, Filinvest Westgate Center, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
This has been made possible by the TAC’s partnership with JAC Motors, a comprehensive auto-maker with full-line independent brand vehicles in China. It has earned numerous awards making it one of the top car brands in the international automotive industry.
Auto industry veteran Val de Leon has been called to active duty anew as president of TAC. Val said, “We are honored to partner with JAC Motors as the exclusive distributor of its innovated vehicles with cutting-edge design and technology”. TAC has become a part of a significant change, a transformation which would set a new trend in the car industry and the competition.”
This evolution is highlighted in its launch theme bearing the tagline “Forget Normal”, an expression of breaking away from the usual and the conventional. The new JAC Motors vehicles are now on display its showroom at Westgate Center in Alabang and soon at its dealerships in Sta. Rosa, Laguna and Pasong Tamo, Makati Makati City. Val said JAC units will also be showcased at the Manila International Auto Show on April 5- 8.
JAC Motors’ offerings look promising not just with their competitive and more affordable pricing but also with the quality of the vehicles. The JAC M1, a mini SUV, for example will sell for P575,000. It has an attractive, sporty design that may appeal to young professionals, comfortable for four persons and has a 7-inch LCD monitor. For a extra baggage space, it roof rack-ready roof rail. Its 1.3L gasoline engine may be a factor for economical city driving.
The Lica Auto Group is the largest multi-brand group of automotive retail and service companies in the Philippines. It holds top awards in sales, service and customer ratings on automotive dealership operations of some of the world’s leading car brands in the country.
