The Ugandan government has consented to adopt electric vehicle mobility infrastructure and innovate its transport ecosystem with the Spiro mobility start-up partnership deal whereby smart vehicles will roam locally. Spiro’s expertise in EV technology will lead the Ugandan population to embrace clean energy that will rub off domestically and across the
Spiro has reportedly designed and built several vehicles with emerging technology that impacts the mobility start-up company to deploy thousands of EVs in Uganda. The mobility start-up company innovation scheme is endorsed by the Ugandan government to deploy 140,000 electric motorcycles and debut thousand of EV charging stations across the country.
Up to three thousand charges & swap EV infrastructure will be stationed across the country starting from the publication of this report and last through 2028. However, Kenya will not be the only sovereign state with access to electric vehicles for mobility solutions which will impact the continent to adopt electric mobility solutions.
“In the coming weeks, we will launch our program to substitute conventional motorcycles with electric ones. Drivers in Uganda will be able to trade in their old motorcycles for one of our commercially available models at no cost,” Spiro’s CEO, Shegun Adjadi Bakari, said
Bakari continued commenting on the EV technology commitment with the Ugandan government “is a groundbreaking move in Africa, and we have already implemented this scheme in Benin, Togo, and Rwanda, with a favorable market reaction. We are excited to bring the same approach to Uganda.”
Bakari continued commenting at the African Fund for Transformation and Industrialization (ATIF) — the start-up mobility company partnered to promote the tech convention to enlighten Africans. “Our ability to deploy over 4,500 electric motorcycles in less than a year of operation is evidence of the fact that electric two-wheelers are the future of sustainable mobility in Africa,” he continued.
Spiro has reportedly worked with several African governments geared by racial conviction to lead emerging technology applications in Benin, Togo, Rwanda, and now Uganda. Since the start-up mobility company gained the limelight in the prior business year with the intention to continue deploying electric motorcycles all through 2030.
This denotes that the start-up mobility company has plans to pitch its high-tech innovation to more continental governments to endorse and alter its electric vehicle production. The Ugandan population will have complete access to roam its geographical landscape with electric motorcycles paired with charging station infrastructures across the country.
