Kantanka, Innoson and Kiira are three African pioneering auto makers that show promise for bringing their cars and trucks to market in 2015.

Innoson, already has cars on the road and models available for purchase, according to its website.

Kantanka, Ghana

The Kantanka is a car that was conceived, designed and made in Ghana. This brand is probably the most promising of all the cars made in Africa right now. The Kantanka Automobile Company has announced that its cars will hit the streets in January pending go-ahead by the Ghana Standards Authority.

The brains behind the car, Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo, is founder and owner of the Kantanka Group of Companies. Kwakwo has been described as naturally gifted, a genius, an inventor and a philanthropist. He has no formal or sophisticated technical background. He imagines, dreams and creates at will.

Innoson, Nigeria

On their website Innoson says, “We are the premiere private vehicle manufacturing company in Nigeria. Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company was commissioned by His Excellency, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Chief Dr. Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma is the founder and developer at Innoson, a Nigerian homegrown car company. Some of their models are already on the road and you can purchase one if you so wish.

The Innoson is already enjoying local buyers believing in local products.

Kiira, Uganda

This is a car developed in Uganda by Kiira Motors Corporation (KMC). Origionally the KIIRA was developed by students. This car is a hybrid — it combine the benefits of gasoline engines and electric motors and can be configured to obtain different objectives, such as improved fuel economy, increased power, or additional auxiliary power for electronic devices and power tools, according to Mojabuzz.

When it retails, it will set you back $30,000 USD.

The success of these cars depends on the uptake by Africans and to some extent the ability of the developers to drum up capital. The Kiira needs $300 million USD.

I think it is more important to buy the right spark plugs. Because without them you will not go far, even with rights. Bad spark plugs are often burnt and cause problems later. As I personally recommend you to think about the right spark plugs, it is not as difficult as it may seem. You just have to think about how to find the right spark plugs. Of course, the professionals will help. For example, here you can read the article about spark plugs. Where motorists know in detail which plugs are worth taking and which are not. On long trips it is simply necessary that everyone knows. That is why I recommend every driver to familiarize yourself with it. Here you will really be able to learn the most important things in essence. I hope this will help you too, as it helped me find suitable candles in my day. Wherever I go now, I go completely calm and it is cool. So it is mandatory for everyone to get to know each other. Good luck and success with this case.

Great, I spoke on this to my boy in 1997 that they are no black owned car companies anywhere on the Earth, now I am proud I can begin to never say that comment again.

Thats true Black Power, economics, science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We need to true support everything Black owned. Its a great sign our future will be bright once again like when we were. Kings and Queens ruling the word thousands of years ago using the brothers method.

It about time, positive move!

Wow! The potential in auto manufacturing is enormous. Venture capitalists should be all over this. Bully for them.

@Roderiq Jay you are so right about those incorrect perceptions of the continent. There is enormous wealth and historically Europeans and now the Chinese have a blood sucking prescence in many of the 54 countries on the continent.
Comment by Roderiq Jay on December 1, 2015 at 12:11am

People actually think that the continent is poor. There are plenty affluent areas in the mother continent doing things far beyond what is going on over here. The tv only records ravaged areas destroyed by the gov't to allow european pirates to come in & take the resources. Right after that the other vultures (xtian missionaries) come in to film & promote their inquistion 'charity' of religious conversion.
