This is but an introduction to Little’s eco-friendly movement. So, right now we are launching in Nairobi first and later to different cities in Kenya and the rest of our partner countries. Follow us for more updates coming very soon.
Mr. Kamal Budhabhatti, Chief Executive Officer, Little, said “While EVs are relatively nascent in Kenya, Little plans to play a vital role in working with consumers, partners, and governments to accelerate EV adoption. As government EV policies and incentives are implemented and essential infrastructure like charging stations are to be built, this launch will provide insights and best practices on the usage of EVs as part of the day-to-day usage of the customers. Successful EV adoption is a multi-stakeholder effort, and we’ll continue to leverage our technology and operational leadership to build a reliable fleet for the future.”
