YAOUNDE, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- A 100 percent self-made vehicle was unveiled in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon. It's an SUV model with modern technologies.

The prototype was produced by the Digital Transformation Alliance (DTA), a non-profit organization of young Cameroonian innovators and entrepreneurs living abroad, with a strong desire to build a vibrant, inclusive and sustainable digital innovation economy back home.

The vehicle was designed and assembled at a workshop.

Cezy Emvoutou, an engineer of DTA, said "The vehicle is our first prototype produced by the DTA. It's an SUV model, a little mixed with features of all-terrain vehicles for the agricultural sector. Inside, we have added the modern technologies that are found in vehicles today, for example, we have blind spot assistance, we have reversing camera screens. We have the technologies that are developed in large firms abroad. What we want to present is that, with Cameroonian know-how, we can also compete with others."
