Kenya’s automaker Mobius Motors will sell its second and improved model for at least Sh1.3 million including VAT, raising it from Sh1.1 million when the first Mobius went on sale in 2014.
Prospective buyers of the rough-terrain Mobius II model are now required to make reservations deposit of Sh50,000. The amount is refundable should one change their mind about buying it.
It is however not clear when the first unit of Mobius II will hit the road.
The new model will have power steering, sealed side windows, lockable doors, a higher ground clearance, an improved exterior and interior design. These features were absent in the first model.
“Designed with local road conditions in mind, the new Mobius II combines the core performance of an off-road car to cover long distances on all roads reliably and comfortably,” a letter sent to a prospective buyer read in part.
Mobius target customers include small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) in agribusiness and infrastructure.
