He continues to note that the new model competitive price of KES 3.9 Million excluding VAT. The first iteration sold about 50 cars and they hope to attain much more in terms of sales this year.
Back in 2016, Mobius announced that they had started taking pre-orders for the Mobius II. The first pre-order was made in August that year with the company announcing plans to make 100 units.
