The Kenya Vehicle Manufacturers (KVM) and Basigo have set a target to produce 1000 electric vehicles in the next three years to meet the growing demand in the transport sector.

Trade and Industrialisation Cabinet Secretary Rebecca Miano noted that besides creation of 300 quality jobs, the new project will help the ministry achieve target of elevating manufacturing contribution to the economy from current 7.6 per cent to 15 per cent by 2027 and eventually to 20 per cent by the year 2030.
