Ghanaian automobile lovers can now drive classy, luxurious but affordable cars thanks to Modern KOSA Automobile which launches its Kantanka range of vehicles tomorrow.
Three ranges of the much anticipated Kantanak cars would be launched Friday and would go on sale immediately. They are the Kantanka Onantefuo (SUV), Kantanka Omama (Pickup) and Kantanka K71 (Mini SUV).
The good thing about Kantaka vehicles which put them ahead of other luxurious vehicles like the Range Rovers, Nissan Patrols, SUVs is that they are homebased, the Chief Executive of Kantanka Group of Companies, Kwadwo Safo Jnr., told Kojo Yankson on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Thursday.

Even in capital cities, roads are notoriously ragged, deplorable. Some are inaccessible to plush imported cars, but Kwadwo assured prospective clients, “Kantanka vehicles know how our roads are” because they are designed to withstand the rough condition.
The decision to venture into car manufacturing was influenced by the desire of some Ghanaians to drive elegant and comfortable vehicles.
He is convinced that the affordable vehicles manufactured by Kantanka would satisfy that desire.
“The vehicles can stand the test of Ghana’s bad roads,” he touted, adding proudly that, “All vehicles are open to customization including responding to voice command to start your ignition”.
“A lot of people want to drive SUVs, we are giving you something that you can feel in a Range Rover, in a Land Cruiser in a very cheap price,” he stated.
What gives the Kantanka range of vehicles advantage over the imported ones is that they are durable, designed for the Ghanaian ecosystem, affordable and one does not need to order parts from abroad because they are available here.
To give it international mileage and recognition, Kwadwo Safo said the company has partnered with an international firm to mould parts of the vehicles.
However, in the 10-year plan of Kantanka, Kwadwo said the company hopes to manufacture every part of their vehicles in Ghana.
The safety and durabibility of the vehicles have been certified by automobile experts as well as various groups and individuals who deal in vehicles including the Ghana Police Service.
