After the much publicised Kantanka range of cars were outdoored, a Kenya-made brand is looking to compete.

Mobius Motors was founded by Joel Jackson in 2009 and aims to make low-cost, ‘Africa-friendly’ cars; fit for the continent’s rugged roads.

According to the company, “Mobius Motors designs, manufactures and sells durable, affordable vehicles for Africa's mass market. We are reimagining the car; designing our vehicles around common road terrain, transport usage and consumer income profiles across the region.”

“Our vehicles have the key functionality and durability of an off-road car, fit for travelling and carrying goods for long distances on bumpy dirt roads. The price is similar to a seven-year-old sedan vehicle, which is not designed to operate on degraded terrain reliably, nor carry the heavier loads common among consumers in these areas.”

But how does the Kenyan brand compare to Kantanka?

Compared to Ghana’s Kantanka, Mobius appears to lack aesthetical appeal. While the Kantanka SUVs might have an appealing design, colours and slight modifications between the models, the Mobius is rigid and perhaps has ergonomic advantage over the Kantanka when canvassing the famously bad roads in most African countries.

So which would you go for if you were to choose; the Kantanka or the Mobius?
