Can you part with your Sh450,000 and be patriotic enough to acquire the first made in Kenya car from Laikipia county?
The car company seems is ready to roll out more cars and in different colours.
This is after a partnership between Sagan Auto-tech and Kenya Export Promotion and Branding Agency which is ta government organisation whose mission is to brand Kenya, export Kenyan products and build Kenya.
The car goes for about Ksh450,000, has a capacity of seven passengers and achieves a maximum speed of 70km per hour.
Actually it was the Ministry of Trade Cabinet Secretary, Betty Maina who oficially opened the assembly line for Laikipia BJ-50, as the model is known.
Sagak’s factory is situated in Nyahururu, Laikipia County where all the assembly and production of the car is done.
Laikipia BJ-50 first hit headlines back in March 2019 when Laikipia County Government showcased two locally made cars at the Devolution Conference.
But then, as now Kenyans have been trolling the car on social media that they look like smokies trollies.
