He said the car’s body is built using tubular steel frame to reduce build and repair costs.
“This is a highly affordable, functional and durable vehicle, it is designed and built for the African market.”
“The vehicle has been driven over 2,500 kms around Kenya on varied terrain and proved its rugged capability,” he adds.
Mobius’s target market is small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) in agribusiness, infrastructure as well as supplies operating in remote rural areas and who require a vehicle that can withstand the rough terrain.
The car manufacturer also targets the lucrative tourism market for riders in the national parks as well as government agencies, especially those located in remote rural outposts.
