Electrification of Africa: a silent revolution

by

A silent electrification revolution is taking place on the African continent.

Dr. Remeredzai Joseph Kuhudzai, founder of Electric Drive Africa (EDA), a Pan African Platform promoting the adoption of electric vehicles across the continent, writes on the blog Clean Technica:

A silent revolution seems to be happening in a lot of African countries that I have visited recently. In 5 years or so from now, I believe the numbers of electric vehicles ranging from 2-wheelers to 3-wheelers to the larger vehicles in Africa are going to surprise a lot of people.

The use of electric scooters and motorcycles is on the rise in Africa, marking a silent revolution in the continent's transportation sector. This transition is driven by various factors, including the need to reduce pollution and the lower operating costs of electric two-wheelers compared to their gasoline-powered counterparts.

In many sub-Saharan African cities, electric two-wheelers are becoming increasingly popular, particularly among motorcycle taxi drivers. The high number of motorcycle taxi drivers in cities like Cotonou, Benin, and Harare, Zimbabwe, has led to a growing demand for electric two-wheelers. These drivers are attracted to the lower maintenance costs and environmental benefits of electric vehicles.

Several startups and companies are leading the electric two-wheeler revolution in Africa. For example, Spiro, formerly known as M-Auto, a startup based in Benin, is aiming to eliminate fuel-guzzling motorbikes and scooters from the roads by trading them in for electric two-wheelers. The company is expanding its operations to countries like Kenya and Uganda, with plans to deploy a large fleet of electric vehicles. Additionally, local entrepreneurs and companies are playing a key role in promoting the adoption of electric two-wheelers. For instance, a Nigerian company called Savenhart Technology (Siltech) is assembling electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers using batteries and motors imported from Asia and Europe. The company is also working with startups to deploy electric scooters as part of their subscription platforms for motorcycle taxis and delivery drivers.

Another significant player is the Swedish-Kenyan startup Roam (formerly Opibus), which converts old vehicles to run off electric motors and opened East Africa's largest electric motorcycle assembly plant. Ampersand is another notable startup with a fleet of around 1,000 bikes and a small network of battery-swap stations across Kenya and Rwanda. Additionally, Shift EV in Egypt, BasiGo in Kenya, and One Electric ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ India, which has set up a joint venture with a Kenyan vehicle manufacturing company, are also contributing to the electric two-wheeler revolution in Africa.

The couple published a book titled AfricaX - Plugged In that details the challenges they faced and the people they met along the way.
