How OPIBUS works

  STEP 1

Choose a suitable vehicle

Start by choosing a suitable vehicle from your existing fleet or ask us for help. The condition of the vehicle can range from factory new to having a faulty engine and gearbox since these components will be changed. At the moment we focus on Land Cruiser model HZJ 79, both regular and extended for safari use.

   STEP 2

Conversion process begins

When received at our workshop the vehicle is thoroughly cleaned and inspected to ensure improved performance after the completed conversion. The process takes less than 2 weeks with optional refurbishment and extension of chassi for safari use.

  STEP 3

Disassembly and installation

Engine, fuel tanks and other combustion related components are removed to give room for mounting of the new electric motor, batteries and power electronics. Functionalities such as power steering, 4WD and driving in shallow water are retained within the same total weight.

  STEP 4

Testing and inspection

The electric conversion is performed according to international standards and Kenyan law, going through both extensive testing and quality control from our side, but also government inspections before approval.

  STEP 5

Connecting Energy System

Your current solar energy system is connected to smart charging stations providing electricity to the vehicles when not used according to your demand. Several charging solutions can be chosen from and we’ll make sure it suits your need.

  STEP 6
