AAV (Arab American Vehicles) logo
Initially AAV was established to serve the Egyptian and Arab military forces by providing them with the much-imitated American CJ-series Jeep vehicles, the descendants of the world's first four-wheel drive military vehicle, the Willys.
These were the first vehicles to roll off the AAV assembly line in 1978.
After meticulous testing, the armed forces of several arab countries chose the CJ over other vehicles.
AAV promptly started assembly, with modifications depending on clients operational requirements. The CJ's exceptional capabilities, coupled with AAV's manufacturing expertise, resulted in top-of-the-line military vehicles that have since set the pace for similar operations in Egypt.
As AAV continued to assemble military vehicles, its reputation for quality spread. In 1982, this led AAV expand it activities to include the assembly of civilian passenger vehicles.
Starting with the Fiat Ritmo, AAV also produced other passenger vehicles such as the Polonez, Suzuki, and Vespa Piagio throughout the eighties. In the nineties, AAV further expanded its production line to incorporate mid-sized and large-sized and passenger sedans, luxury vehicles and Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV's). Top international car brands, operating locally, were drawn by AAV's quality control and precision in assembly. These corporations included DaimlerChrysler, Peugeot, KIA, Citroen and Hyundai.
