He adds that it is a 2.0litre engine car which produces about 130 big horsepower. He promised that more will be done, saying “there is big room for improvement and we won’t stop till it gets better”. Marketing and future plansAs regards marketing the product, Mallo said there have been a lot of calls and text messages, with people requesting for details of how they can get the cars. He, however, noted that the challenge is sales are not yet open to the general public. 

 The engineer said the first product is more like a research stage, just to let the world know that Nigeria has a lot of great talents.
