Indigenous automobile manufacturer, Kantanka has indicated that it has doubled its production output. According to Kantanka Automobile, its production line reached 250 units in 2018 because of the high demand for cars from Nigeria. “Production is currently still on-going; we have doubled last year’s production and we have just recently added an order of 100 vehicles to hit the Nigerian market,” General Manager of Kantanka Automobile, Francis Kudjordjie revealed to reporters.
The CEO also said the company received its biggest order, 13,000 units in 2018 from three African countries.
The company also said it will go into the production of electric cars by the end of 2019. “Kantanka will build electric cars that could travel between Accra to Kumasi before recharge,” Kwadwo Safo Kantanka Junior, CEO of Kantanka Automobile told Starr Fm in an interview. The CEO noted that the company is ready to compete on the global level.
The Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) in October this year approved 26 national standards for vehicle parts and systems to regulate the automobile industry with effect from next year, 2020.
The authority was assigned the responsibility in line with its statutory mandate to develop national standards for the automobile industry.
