This visionary move aims to replace conventional vehicles and significantly reduce transport fuel imports and the associated greenhouse gas emissions.

The firm’s management said that it has laid out ambitious plans to roll out a driver-training program in the East African region to support the transition into EVs. The Kenyan EV maker has also inked various partnership agreements with various industry players to manufacture and develop various Electrical and solar vehicles that will meet the demand in the market where Go Electric Ltd through its Corporate Affairs team and consultants will provide research and development, technology consulting services and sales agent services to overseas partners.

The EV Dealer is establishing a robust charging infrastructure across key Rwandan locations through strategic partnerships with local stakeholders. This collaboration aims to ensure convenient and widespread access to charging stations, facilitating the seamless integration of electric vehicles into the country’s transport network.

“We are investing USD 20,000,000 to import more vehicles and help the country as the global attention shifted to e-mobility. This investment will not only contribute to sustaining the country’s transportation infrastructure but also align with Rwanda’s commitment to sustainability and green initiatives. While the world embraces e-mobility, our focus on importing more vehicles will ensure accessibility and affordability in the local market. Additionally, this strategic investment aligns with Rwanda’s economic growth trajectory, providing employment opportunities and fostering technological advancement within the automotive industry. In the next five years we will be growing much faster than the industry growth which means that we can enlarge our market share without necessarily focusing on the profits but the impact we create,” said Mr. Komen.
