    Mobius Motors- a small Kenyan company has started production its Mobius Two, which is a boxy two-door vehicle designed specifically for the rough roads of rural Africa. This 4WD (four-wheeled drive) vehicle comes powered with a Toyota-sourced 4-cylinder petrol engine and rides on a five-speed manual transmission.

    The unique selling point of the Mobius Two is the fact that it rides on a dependable tubular steel frame which can easily be welded if broken. As for the interior, this two-door vehicle can accommodate between six to eight adults when translated to a pickup with parallel-placed foldable seats at the rear. No specifics are available at the moment but this vehicle is said to come handy with a 1,100-pound payload (499kg).

    The vehicle is clearly D-I-Y(do-it-yourself) friendly and is claimed to be built in Kenya with about 35% of its parts sourced locally. Mobius founder Joel Jackson (a British computer engineer), hopes to sell about 500 examples of the Mobius Two before the year ends with a base price of roughly $6,000.
