Electric vehicles company BasiGo is adding 15 new buses to its fleet as the push for a cleaner transport in Kenya gains momentum. The imported buses have docked at the Port of Mombasa.
“Fifteen electric buses have just touched down in Mombasa. This is the largest shipment of clean, electric buses to ever come into this part of the world,” Said BasiGo.
“This is a historic step towards a new future for public transport in Africa, and BasiGo is proud to be making it happen.”
The firm said the partially assembled vehicles will now be moved to the Associated Vehicle Assemblers in Mombasa for final assembly before being delivered to operators in January.
“We cannot wait to see these buses plying routes in Nairobi, providing modern, safe, affordable, electric transport to commuters on a daily basis,” The firm noted.
