This is Mobius II, a low-cost SUV manufactured in Kenya and designed for rural Africa
I know, the name of this Kenyan company Mobius Motors does not sound familiar at all, but we’ll tell you that the company was founded in 2009 by a computer engineer whose main goal was to facilitate transport in Africa, and more specifically in rural areas with little or no infrastructure.
Speaking of its propulsion – only models of rear traction are offered, at least for the moment – a 1.8 liter gasoline engine with a modest power of 131 HP is ordered, coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The model is already on sale by order, the first units will not reach the market until the beginning of 2018. It costs about 1.3 million Kenyan shillings, that’s about 4.5 million Nigerian naira or 10,600 euros.
