Despite the countless lies and falsehoods surrounding electric vehicles in Kenya, their use appears to be rising. The most recent reports state that a sizable shipment of electric vehicles entered the nation. Given that some electric vehicles have been tested in the nation, this is not really surprising.
The bus operators and SACCOs in Kenya may decide to deploy electric buses for public transportation for the reasons listed below.
1. They are friendly to the environment.
Bus companies care about the environment even though their primary goal is to generate money. Companies would want to utilize electric buses since they are less likely to increase environmental pollution given how harmful diesel engines are for the environment.
Bus businesses must generate enormous profits in order to continue operating. Electric buses are certain to increase profits for the companies over diesel buses.
This is due to the fact that they are less expensive to operate and maintain because the cost of charging the vehicles is less than the cost of petrol. Additionally, because they have fewer mechanical components than conventional buses, electric buses require comparatively little upkeep.
