Naza World sees a great opportunity via the younger generation to strengthen the Naza brand with the unveiling of its RM65,000 solar vehicle Tuesday.
Naza Group of Companies group executive chairman Datuk Wira SM Faisal SM Nasimuddin said the group, which currently recorded a 70 per cent share of its foreign brand, was eager to play a role in integral projects that provide the automotive industry with greener options for the future.
"Naza is proud to support the inspirations of Malaysia's youth, and we're always encouraged to empower the younger generation since there are a lot of potential in them to create a better leader.
"This is such a great vehicle designed by our youths. We will look for other opportunities because this is a kind of "win-win" situation," he told reporters after handing a cheque for RM65,000 to sponsor the Taylor's Eco Team.
Built by a team of five first-year engineering students of Taylor's University, the energy-efficient vehicle was designed to compete in the upcoming Shell Eco-Challenge Race in two categories -- urban and prototype.
The winning vehicle is the one that achieves the farthest distance using the least amount of energy.
