On average, a thermal motorcycle emits 1,500 kg of CO2 per year. While the lifespan of thermal motorcycles is three to four years, electric motorcycles are estimated to have a shelf-life of 10 years. The introduction of 3,000 electric motorcycles between Togo and Benin will significantly reduce up to 4,500,000 kg of CO2 each year for the next 10 years.
In addition, M AUTO has started the construction of clean industrialization platforms, creating skilled jobs in engineering and manufacturing, and aspires to create jobs for 500,000 people by 2030 across Africa. With manufacturing and assembly plants, the electric vehicle company will be the first to manufacture electric motorcycles and batteries in Africa.
Demonstrating the ability to rapidly execute a global green transition strategy in Africa, M AUTO has signed the largest carbon credit transaction for electric mobility in Africa. Aspiring to improve everyday life in the African cities by reducing traffic pollution, a major public health issue for urban populations, M AUTO’s potential for social impact is particularly notable in cities where transport infrastructure is poor, youth unemployment is high, and the number of motorcycle taxis is increasing.
M AUTO will be present in Rwanda before the end of the 2023 and plans to launch operations in Nigeria, Cameroon, Kenya, DRC and Tanzania before the end of 2025. M Auto’s goal is to reach one million active customers by the end of 2025.
