Equator Mobility aims to improve lives in Kenya by delivering sustainable and scalable transport and energy solutions. We are Kenya’s first provider of fully electric commercial vehicles. Established in early 2021, our objective is to assist businesses in the region with a cost-effective, environmentally friendly mode of transport that will dramatically reduce GHG emissions, air pollution, create employment opportunities, and contribute to Kenya’s economic growth.
Whilst passenger cars receive the most attention when discussing a future free of fossil fuels, we believe that vehicle fleets will play a pivotal role the e-mobility revolution in Africa. Often unnoticed, fleet vehicles are central to all our lives; they move the food we eat, the clothes we wear and even the medicines which keep us healthy.
In building a cleaner and more affordable transport ecosystem, Equator Mobility is also exploring the electric motorcycle market, smart batteries and the associated infrastructure of intelligent battery swap stations. Battery swaps are faster, cleaner, and more affordable than refuelling with petrol. Going electric will increase the boda driver’s income whilst leapfrogging Africa towards a carbon free future.
