The Kantanka Group of Companies is to introduce a new electric vehicle in the Ghanaian market called Kantanka Amoanimah EV.
The first Kantanka Amoanimah EV is still being assembled in Ghana.
The move by Kantanka to go into assembling small vehicles is deemed as responding to the demand and bridging the competition of the Ghanaian market where smaller engine vehicles are popular in the mass market.
Speaking about the development, General Manager of Kantanka Automobile, Francis Kojo Kujoji praised the recently out doored Ghana Automotive Manufacturing Development Programme Policy and revealed that Kantanka has been part of it from the beginning through series of engagements and are, therefore, optimistic that it will help the company live its dream of producing in large quantities, vehicles that the Ghanaian market will be happy with.
