A 21-year-old Sierra Leonean self-taught engineer and innovator, James Samba built Sierra Leone’s first-ever electric vehicle equipped with self-recharging capability made with 75% local materials. James’ electric vehicle is a 10-seater shuttle minibus. It’s solar-powered and electric-powered.

He is looking forward to starting mass production of electric cars in Sierra Leone if he gets the right support. He says financial and technical support has been a challenge in what he’s doing. The Deligent youngman is calling on the government, NGOs and individuals to step in and support his vision.

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    appearance. I must say you have done a great
    job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.
    Outstanding Blog!
