Breaking - Electric cargo bike pilot starts in Senegal
Electric cargo-tricycle gives people in Senegal a path out of poverty.
In the Senegal, a new electric-powered tricycle is helping bring income to poor people and easing the burden of looking after families. The three-wheeler powered by a fast-charged lithium ion battery, is being piloted by Bob Eco in Dakar.
With this project Bob Eco aims to build a sustainable and local value chain for the production, operation, and maintenance of electric cargo bikes in collaboration with local and national stakeholders.
Bob Ultee, CEO and Spokesperson of Bob Eco explains: “The project is based on a social entrepreneurship business model that makes clean mobility accessible to lower income communities. Because it is designed as a financially sustainable structure, it has the potential to create a positive impact on Senegal’s society for the long-term, including job creation particularly for women, who will have secured equal access to all training positions on offer.”
