Nairobi Looks to Electric Taxis For Reduced Emissions

Launched in Kenya in August 2018 by Finnish company EkoRent, Nopia has so far installed five charging stations in three locations, including the Two Rivers Mall, the Hub Karen and Thika Road Mall. An electric powered car is powerful, silent, does not pollute the environment and saves money, according to one driver.
