Opibus delivered their electric safari vehicle to the Lewa Wilderness. The experience and benefits of going electric is a game changer for the safari industry.
SILENT: When the rumbling noise from the combustion engine is left out, only the sound of the tyres remains. This also makes it a lot easier to get closer to wildlife without disturbing them.
POWERFUL: The electric motor is superior to the combustion engine when it comes to torque and power. Peak torque is achieved instantly from zero rpm, with a continuous and powerful acceleration.
CLEAN: Electric vehicles don’t release any emissions or particles to the surroundings, vastly improving air quality and mitigating our effect on the climate. Powered with renewable electricity, the vehicle is 100% emission free.
COST EFFECTIVE: Driving a vehicle on electricity instead of fossil fuels reduces the costs by about 80%. The electric drive train also eliminates a majority of the high maintenance and service costs related to the combustion engine.
