Nigeria’s first wholly indigenous vehicle manufacturer, Innoson, has unveiled a tricycle ambulance.
The ambulance consists of a tricycle popukarly known as Keke fitted to a rectangular carriage.
Innoson also said on its Twitter handle that it would unveil cheaper brands in October 2019 in its determination to wean Nigerians off imported used cars.
It said the brands would cost N3.5 million.
Its cheapest vehicle currently is the Fox sedan.
The Special Assistant on Public Relations and Media to the company’s Chairman, Mr. Cornel Osigwe, said it was impossible for it to produce and sell a cat at N1m.
His words: “It is highly impossible today to produce a car with N1,000,000. In 2015, N1,000,000 was about $6600, Today is about $2700. Our Naira is nothing now. However @innosonvehicles will release a car of N3,500,00 by October 2019.”
