Abuja, February 7, 2021 –Nigeria’s first locally assembled electric car, Hyundai Kona, was unveiled in a grand style at the Nation’s Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on the 5th of February, 2021 by Stallion Group, with high profile dignitaries including the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Hon.

Speaking about the car, the Minister of Industry expressed excitement at unveiling the latest innovation in the country and showed support for the initiative by Stallion Group, saying “Stallion Group is the pioneer producer of the Made-in-Nigeria Electric Vehicle (EV) called Kona. The FMIT & NADDC has it as part of their plans for the automotive industry to migrate from the use of conventional vehicles (powered by Fuel and Diesel) to alternative powered vehicles, considering the environmental degradation caused by global warming”.

9.35 hours for a full charge

No fast charging feature? grin

How many places can boast of constant electricity within those hours?

What of people who are on the go most times?

It is well.

Hmmmm, this thread is exposing lots of illiterates.

It takes 9 hours to charge fully.

A full battery can do 400+km

That means just 2 hours charge should be able to do almost 100km.

How many people do 100km daily to work and back home?

This means this can work even when you have poor electricity.

A bare minimum of 2hrs charge at home or at work and you're good to go.
