Mobius and Badge Engineering

Some people have criticized Mobius Motors for badge engineering, which is the practice of selling a vehicle that is manufactured by another company under a different name. In the case of Mobius, it is compared to another vehicle manufactured by a Chinese company called BAIC Group.

The vehicle is also sold in other countries such as 

  • BAIC F40 (pickup)
  • BAIC B40/B70 (During development)
  • Innoson IVM G40 (Nigeria)
  • Mobius 3 (Kenya)
  • ICKX K2 (Italy)
  • Aras 3 (Iran)
  • Beijing BJ40 Plus/ BAIC BJ40L (4-door)

Mobius Motors has defended its use of badge engineering, arguing that it allows the company to offer its vehicles at a lower price point. The company also argues that it has made significant changes to the Foton vehicles, including upgrading the engines, suspension, and interior.

The Mobius 1

The Mobius 1 was the first vehicle produced by Mobius Motors. It was a small, four-wheel-drive vehicle that was designed for use in rural areas. The Mobius 1 was powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine. The Mobius 1 was not a commercial success, and it was discontinued.

The Mobius 2

The Mobius 2 was the second vehicle produced by Mobius Motors. It was a larger, more powerful SUV than the Mobius 1. The Mobius 2 was powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine. The Mobius 2 was also not a commercial success.


Mobius Motors is a Kenyan company that is trying to make a mark in the automotive industry. The company has produced three vehicles, the Mobius 1, Mobius 2, and Mobius 3. The Mobius 3 seems to be the most successful of the three vehicles, as it aims to achieve commercial success. Mobius Motors faces a number of challenges, including competition from established automakers and a small and underdeveloped African automotive market. However, the company is determined to succeed, and it is investing in new products and expanding its distribution network. If Mobius can overcome its challenges, it has the potential to be a major player in the African automotive market.
