The governor of Lagos State Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed Nigeria’s first locally-made full electric car produced by Stallion Group.
Kemi Filani gathered that the Hyundai Kona car comes with zero-emission, 482km driving range, and can be charged electrically both at home and workplace.
“With an innovation of Hyundai Kona, we do not need to put the pressure on what is the pump price of oil again, what is the pump price of petroleum again,” Mr Sanwo-Olu said on Friday.
Sanwo also stated that the state government will partner with Ibile Oil and Gas and other special organisations to build complex charging points in the city so that people will have where to charge the cars.
Speaking at the event, Stallion Group Managing Director Rohtagi Manish said that the innovation was a step towards an eco-friendly green Lagos.
The vehicle is said to be able to go a distance of 482km (the equivalent of Lagos to Warri) before it requires charging again.
