Uganda's car that does not use petrol or diesel
It has taken Makerere College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology students thirty months to eventually put the car on road that was test driven at the University on 01.Nov.2011. The car uses a battery for 80kms before it is recharged implying that there is no need for petrol or diesel to run it.

On opening the bonnet, all you see is a mortar and not plugs like it is the case with other cars. Gone are the days when Uganda used to be branded as a country that cannot even make a needle, now a cost effective car Kiira Ev has been born out of it.

The two seater vehicle that can move from Kampala to Jinja before it can be recharged was made using metals from Roofings Ltd among others plus other local materials. The team behind the project were tight lipped on the cost of the vehicle.

More vehicles will be manufactured and will include a 7 seater and a 30 seater van that will be able to do at least 200kms with the help of a solar panel. The car project is part of the initiatives under the 4.5bn funding supported by the President.

Kiira Ev which is very similar to a 3door vitz will be launched by the President at the end of the month.
