Kantanka Automobile, a subsidiary of the Kantanka Group of Companies based in Ghana, is set to commercialize its electric cars by December.

This comes after it had successfully completed a pilot phase of its electric car manufacturing in the country.

According to the company’s General Manager, Mr Francis Kudjorjie, the initiative would be “a mover for the nation”, as Ghana for a while now has been complaining about the rise in fuel price.

He indicated that the roll out of the electric cars will help cut down the demand for fuel and move the nation to the next level.

Speaking on how Kantanka Automobile is revising its strategies to meet new trends in the auto mobile business, Mr Kudjorjie said his outfit had been experimenting the idea for the past three years.

And as such the company had come out with various prototypes to meet customer expectations.

“Currently, we have three models of the electric cars that have undergone tests and have passed.

“So we are now moving on to the commercialisation of the electric cars and by the end of this year or early next year, we will be rolling out electric cars,” he said.

Unlike normal cars which rely on petrol, diesel or gas to function, the electric cars are powered by electricity, making them an  option for many.
