I think this is exactly the kind of car that would do really really well in Kenya especially as fuel prices continue to soar. What are the chances of hybrid technology being introduced there in the form of new cars though? Pretty darn low according to an industry player I had a chat with when I was there. In fact it sounded like there were absolutely no plans to go that route. The only hope is for Kenyans to be able to import used hybrid cars from Europe and Asia where i gather their production and sale is not government subsidized and so prices remain high. Which is all too unfortunate because with the growing pollution problem, mass adoption of hybrid cars (which i’m sure would happen if Kenyans had access to them) could really make a difference.
