Question NAZA... The OEM seller in Malaysia?

What are the models that Naza actually manufacture? Do they just license all models from others?

I know they manufacture Naza Sutera.. But in Malaysia, they seems to carry all kinds of brands. Some change their logos to Naza, some they just keep their badge..

They also assemble Kia Picanto can call it Suria. Heard they were going to build Peugeot 206, but didn't follow the news closely

Malaysian manufacturer Naza airs its first offering in Singapore
NAZA IS THE third Malaysian car maker to join the local market after Proton and Perodua with its inaugural model, the Sutera compact hatchback.

It was launched on Saturday, January 5 2008 in the new Naza showroom at Ubi Car Mall.

Present for the event was CEO and Chairman of Naza, Tan Sri Data’ Seri Utama SM Nasimuddin SM Amin and Ms Normah Osman, the Counsellor (Trade) of Malaysian Trade Commission.

"With an annual output of more than 3,000 units, we expect Naza Sutera to outperform its class rivals and quickly gain popularity among young consumers," said Tan Sri Nasimuddin.

Priced at $41,999 with COE, the Sutera looks set to take on its Malaysian counterparts as well as the Chinese and the Koreans in the budget car market.

Naza is known up north as a provider of cheap, economical runabouts and also builds motorcycles. Besides distributing cars under the Kia franchise, it also has two ‘native’ cars based upon models from other makers.

The first is the Naza Bestari, a rebadged Peugeot 206 and the second is the Sutera which itself is based upon the Chinese-made Hafei Lobo. The Lobo generated some interest as a compact hatchback being designed by Pininfarina and featuring Lotus-tuned suspension.

Launched in 2006 in Malaysia, the Sutera (which means ‘silk’ in Malay) was the result of a deal between Naza and Hafei, with the Naza making its version of the car for right-hand drive markets like Singapore and the U.K.

Considerable changes have been wrought to the Sutera to differentiate it from the Lobo with the most obvious being an enhancement of looks by way of front-end upgrades.

Naza claim that “more than 600 parts have been enhanced since the technological transfer” but it’s safe to say the car shouldn’t be too far off from the Hafei in road manners.

Local distribution will be handled by Nascars Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of the J & J Royal Group who are also in charge of Perodua and TD 2000 here.

Mr John Ng, managing director of Nascars reiterated the company’s intention to be a strong player in the sub-$50k car market.

“We want to make Naza the Singaporean’s car of choice and give its competitors a run for the money,” he said

This Naza sounds like a very big company in Malaysia. Is it state-owned? What are the cars they carry?

Yes, it's HUGE..... to be precise, they are called Naza Group of Companies. No, I think it's a private company: "Sdn Bhd"...

Quote:
The Group now has 14 business divisions covering industries such as cigarette distribution, credit and leasing, engineering, hotels, insurance, machine tools and parts, manufacturing, motorcycles, property, transport services, plantations and water craft.

Last month it ventured into the food business by launching the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant and Market, but still remains most known for its automotive business, holding the local franchise for South Korea's Kia and France's Peugeot, as well as import permits for Mercedes Benz and Mazda
