Here Is The Price Of a 35 Seat Ugandan Made Electric Bus

Uganda is among the first African countries to launch a vehicle assembly company in the whole of the continent. They have been manufacturing electric vehicles which most of them are powered by solar panels.

The 35 seat bus was intended for urban areas rather than inter city use because of the restrictions on how far it can travel. If it is mass produced each bus would cost up to &58,000 (£40,000) which is a competitive price.

According to Kiira Motors Chief Executive Paul Isaac Musasizi although customers will have a choice between electric and diesel powered versions of the KDC this particular model is aimed at the tourism market where the buses will be used to reach remote locations that might not have charging infrastructure.

Surely this is a game changer in the region although the vehicles have not archived that much success as expected since it was manufactured in the year 2016.
