Electric tuktuk will not sell in Kenya here is why

There are a number of tuktuk operators in many parts of the country. This is because this business is very easy and convinient to most of the in employed youths in the country.

The news of electric tuktuks in Kenya have been spreading for a while now. This has been taken well by big companies which deal in transportation as they wish to reduce the amount of air pollution.

Apart from big companies that deal in supply, most of the common commercial tuktuk driver's do not seem to be in a hurry to go after these etuktuks because of some reasons. Below are some of the reasons.

1. They take long to charge. While electric cars and motorcycles take at most two hours to fully charge, the electric tuktuk takes five hours to fully charge which take a lot of time and patience.

2. The price is relatively high. Diesel and petrol tuktuks relatively go for ksh. 300 thousand, the electric tuktuks go for around ksh 450,000 which is much more expensive.
