  • Comments Off on France Ganachaud: A Legacy of Passion for Classic Cars

France Ganachaud, a mechanical engineer by profession, has been passionate about classic cars ever since he got his hands on a 1922 Citroën 5CV nearly sixty years ago. Over the years, he spent countless hours repairing and restoring the car to its former glory. 

As a mechanical engineer, Mr. Ganachaud has a deep understanding of the intricacies of classic cars. He appreciates the artistry and craftsmanship that went into designing and building them. He also understands the importance of maintaining these cars and preserving them for future generations. 

He often takes part in classic car rallies and shows, where he can share his passion with other enthusiasts and express his love for classic cars which has not only brought him joy but has also allowed him to bond with his family. His children and grandchildren often join him in working on the cars, and they share in the excitement of each restoration project.

The Drive 4 UR School is a CSR project set in 2007 to help Ford dealerships raise money for schools by organizing a driving day. The resounding success of ‘Drive 4 UR School’ prompted Ford to expand its reach and create ‘Drive 4 UR Community’ in 2012 to enable dealers to partner with community organizations and give back. In line of the project launch, Ford Mauritius planned a first drive of 2022, with fans and owners on Saturday 6th August at Chasée of Roland Maurel in Pailles.

Chez Axess, nous définissons ce marché comme porteur. Tout d’abord, il s’agit d’une tendance mondiale : face aux défis du réchauffement climatique, toutes les nations encouragent l’acquisition d’un véhicule électriques afin d’amortir l’impact carbone. A Maurice, le gouvernement favorise fortement les modèles hybrides & électriques à faibles émissions en octroyant une réduction de 50% de la taxe routière à l’achat de cette catégorie de véhicule et des avantages sur la taxe d’importation. Les produits de financement aussi favorisent ce phénomène d’électrification du parc automobile, cela encouragera sans nul doute l’acte d’achat d’un véhicule propre et au consommateur à s’engager à un environnement plus vert et en plus à moindre cout.

Nous notons également une hausse des demandes de la part des consommateurs : en 2020, les produits hybrides/électriques représentaient 3% des ventes. Ce taux a doublé en 2021, avec une représentation de 6% du marché du neuf. L’enterrement des véhicules essence et diesel thermiques en 2035 par l’Union Européenne, l’opinion publique, les collectivités et plus simplement l’urgence écologique sont des facteurs qui poussent les con [...]

Jaguar Mauritius doubles its bet on the world of golf

A discipline that reflects the values and aesthetics of the legendary car manufacturer

The automotive world and golf have more in common than you would expect. These similarities are even more prominent when speaking of Jaguar Land Rover which has not only reached a milestone of the Jaguar Golf League in 2022, but now a popular reference point for our customers. We look forward to the upcoming edition for our passionate golfers to compete on the courses of the exclusive clubs in Mauritius. Golf has an important value for both Jaguar and Land Rover and represents the tangible essence of both brands: tradition, sports elegance, style, determination, and respect.

Jaguar renewed its partnership with SWAN this time again for the Jaguar Golf League around 6 golfing events across different golf clubs of Mauritius to reach a final event at Le Paradis Golf Club on 22nd January. Kicking off with 45 participants in different categories around the golf course, made the day an interesting one. A game enjoyed throughout the parkour to reach a final stand and win the grand prix.

The event followed with a cocktail party with all the participants relaxing and enjoying some good time around good food, creative cocktails, and [...]

Il est clair que la crise sanitaire a sérieusement affecté l’industrie automobile dans son ensemble avec notamment le bouleversement des lignes de production au niveau mondial, ce qui a eu un impact non-négligeable sur la performance d’Axess. En ce qu’il s’agit de Maurice, nos activités ont plus particulièrement été partiellement paralysées du fait des deux confinements successifs de 2020 et de 2021. Puis, compte tenu de l’incertitude du marché et de la situation économique, de nombreux clients ont laissé leur plan d’achat en suspens tandis que d’autres se sont résignés à écarter l’idée d’acquérir de nouveaux véhicules. Cependant, depuis la reprise des activités en juillet 2021, nous notons une relance progressive avec un dynamisme retrouvé au niveau des activités de vente et d’après-vente.

Chez Axess, la résilience est une réalité qui se vit au quotidien et cette crise sanitaire nous a permis de repenser et réinventer notre façon de travailler. Par exemple, certains de nos techniciens étaient sur le terrain pour assurer la mobilité des véhicules des clients. Une période critique où la nécessité d’avoir les bons réflexes pour entretenir le véhicule était crucia [...]
