Rev 7, the First ever Car Brand from the African Soil
A team of Zambian youth has made history in the automotive industry after producing a unique brand of vehicle that possesses an impressive design. Rev 7 was designed by a Zambian national and made in the country.
Through their spokesman, the team revealed that the vehicle was made using locally sourced materials. The team also notes that it hopes to venture into the production of electric cars anytime soon. Their team leader Mr. Stephen noted, “What we want is to go electric; I think we’ve done this so that we can show the world that we can do it. Our plan is to make an electric car which we’ve designed and as soon as we receive enough resources or we have the money, then we can have it made.”
Rev-7 boasts of a 1400 Nissan engine, good sound system and 18 Inch rim.
Challenges Faced by the Team
Financial constraints are one of the primary challenges limiting the growth of this group. Highlighting their plea on their Facebook page the group appealed to the Zambian government and other well-wishers to help them in fulfilling their car exporting business dream.
“We are looking forward to the government to sponsor such projects so that Zambia can be exporting cars”, read the post.
