For­mula proves a win­ner

NT News - Motoring - - NEWS -

ATECO manag­ing di­rec­tor Ric Hull is hop­ing the suc­cess­ful for­mula he used to sell Kia will work with the Great Wall utes.

‘‘ We’ve got no thoughts of tak­ing the mar­ket by storm, it will be a grad­ual process, but I think it will be eas­ier than it was with the Kore­ans,’’ Hull said. ‘‘Ev­ery­thing we buy now is made in China, so peo­ple are comfortable with buy­ing Chi­nese.’’

All three mod­els in the Great Wall ute range have a war­ranty of three years or 100,000km, there is 24-hour road­side as­sis­tance for the war­ranty pe­riod, and Ateco will pro­vide a free loan ve­hi­cle if a Great Wall ute is off the road for re­pairs for more than 48 hours.

At the time of launch, Ateco has ap­pointed more than 40 dealers to han­dle the Great Wall utes in all ma­jor cen­tres, in­clud­ing Dar­win.

Hull an­tic­i­pates more will be ap­pointed in the com­ing months.
