Star National Automotive (SNA), an authorized dealer of Mercedes-Benz, marks its 35th anniversary since its establishment in 1988 as the first dealer of the luxurious German brand in Egypt. SNA started from a single branch in Dokki and expanded to eight branches across the country, all operating as 3S facilities.
Karim Sami Saad, Chairperson of National Automotive Company, expressed his joy in commemorating the 35th anniversary, saying: “We are proud of our 35-year journey, which was driven by our loyal and satisfied customers. Throughout these years, we have worked tirelessly to establish SNA’s brand image with a strong focus on providing exceptional and inclusive services that meet all the customers’ needs. By embracing continuous innovation and swift response to market demands, we have reached new heights of excellence and customer satisfaction”.
Yasser Saleh, CEO of Star and Alexandria National Automotive, said: “SNA offers six models of SUV and Sedan Mercedes-Benz All-Electric Range in line with the company’s sustainability framework, the government’s 2030 strategy, and the COP 27 recommendations. The new range includes EQS, EQE, EQB, and EQA which come with premium after-sales services for six years with no mileage limit. Moreover, EQA and EQB owners will enjoy an 8-year battery warranty or 160,000 km. Meanwhile, EQE and EQS, including SUV models, are distinguished with a 10-year battery warranty or 250,000 km, providing an unprecedented driving experience with carbon-free technology.
