Mana Mobility Plans To Manufacture Electric Cars In Ghana By 2023
A new startup in the capital of Ghana, Mana Mobility, hints at manufacturing electronic cars in the country by January 2023.
At a stakeholders meeting, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Mana Mobility Germany, Mr. Peter Scharzenbauer told the media that talks are still ongoing with regulatory bodies to meet all requirements for a smooth take-off.
“The cars will be developed, produced in Ghana by Ghanaians for Ghana. For the entire week, we have spent time working on how to make the right concept. We have experts coming in from all different kinds of areas.” he stated.
“We have the Design and Technology Institute helping us find the right way of doing it. And the outcome was the car we just presented. The next steps are for the next five, six months, we are building some prototypes so we can also see in real life and not only in PowerPoint.”
The Design and Technology Institute has been approached by Mana to partner with them in the process of manufacturing.
Mana will be companies with some companies like Kofa and Solar Taxi which are already into electric vehicle manufacturing in Ghana.
The EV bill which is being vetted to be passed this year is part of the measures the government is putting in place to keep all these companies in check.
