- Luxgen becomes the first passenger automobile brand to achieve international exportation
A milestone has been reached by Taiwan’s automobile industry. Following its international debut in the
10th Dubai Motor Show, Taiwan’s first passenger automobile brand Luxgen has built-up a high level of
global awareness with a number of agencies and distributors from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar
and Bahrain expressing their interest in the cooperation opportunities with Luxgen. After a succession of
negotiations and circumspect evaluations, Luxgen has signed its first international distributorship
agreement with Oman’s MHD (Mohsin Haider Darwish) L.L.C., one of the largest and most successful privately
owned business houses in the region to become the exclusive agency of Luxgen in the Sultanate of Oman.
Mr. David Aziz, Director of the Automotive Division of MHD L.L.C., attended the ceremony to extend his
support and gratitude to the collaboration between the two local giants. Commenting on the completion of
the first international distributorship establishment, Mr. K.C. Hu, CEO of Luxgen, said: “Beyond the
record-breaking sales success in Taiwan, we have also achieved a breakthrough in the international market
development as well. This distribution agreement for Oman is just the beginning of our global marketing
strategy, more importantly, it will elevate Taiwan’s automobile industry to the level never before
Two models from Luxgen, the Luxgen 7 MPV and the Luxgen 7 SUV, are scheduled to launch in the Q4 of
2010 in Oman. Luxgen 7 MPV, being the first model released by Luxgen, has had an astonishingly successful
market launch in Taiwan by out-selling, for example, the entire Hyundai brand by itself.
Luxgen’s new distribution network in Oman will be managed by Mr. Mohsin Haider Darwish, the managing
director of MHD L.L.C. For what begun as a family business, MHD has experienced various levels of
commercial success and currently employs over 1,000 people. Its scope of business includes automobiles,
tyres and batteries, office automation products, computers, telecommunications, engineering products, oil
and gas products, electrical and electronics, building materials and gases and medical equipments
including the manufacturer of industrial gases. The automotive division is one of the core pillars in MHD
