GAC Motor Wins Recognition for Use in Public Transport in the UAE

An Endorsement of Quality
The GA8, GN8 and GN6 have officially been recognized and approved for use in public transport by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of the United Arab Emirates. Of the three models approved, the GA8 has been approved for use as a luxury vehicle in the realm of public transport; the GN8 and GN6 have been approved for use as taxi vehicles in the realm of transport.

This development is a monumental step for GAC MOTOR in the region, demonstrating that governing bodies of the UAE officially endorse GAC MOTOR as a brand of national-level quality and reliability.

The RTA of the UAE imposes strict guidelines on the vehicles approved for public transport, to ensure that the roads remain safe. RTA approval is granted only to companies that satisfy rigorous quality standards.
