AVA to assemble 130 electric vehicles from BYD by 2024

Associated Vehicle Assemblers (AVA) will assemble 130 electric vehicles in Kenya from Chinese car manufacturer Build Your Dreams (BYD). According to AVA’s executive director who made the announcement, the vehicles will be imported from China in parts. “The advantage of working with BYD is that they are one of the world’s leaders in electric mobility with modern automotive technology devices,” explains Matt Lloyd. The partnership comes at a time when BYD is considering the acquisition of six mines that host large lithium deposits in Africa. By mining the metal, the company will be able to produce up to 27.78 million batteries for the development of its plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle ranges by 2029. This is one of the reasons why AVA is expanding its electric vehicle assembly operations in Kenya in 2023.
