Affordable Electric Vehicles in Africa

Petrol motorcycles make up half of Africa’s road traffic. Ampersand developed and manufactures an electric motorcycle and battery pack, along with a portfolio of ‘battery-as-a-service’ supporting swap stations. Ampersand’s growing fleet of 800 motorbikes cost 35% less to buy and operate, have more horsepower, and currently serve 20 million km of road.
