Roam Electric has partnered with Kengra Logistics to launch electric motorcycles in Western Kenya

Swedish electric vehicle manufacturer Roam has teamed up with Kitale-based Kengra Logistics Limited to unveil next-generation electric motorcycle technology in western Kenya.

With rising fuel prices in the country, the introduction of electric technology will help reduce fuel consumption and cost of operations among motorists in the region. The technology will also see the phasing out of fossil fuels, promoting clean energy.

Kengra Logistics will be the face of electric vehicles in Western Kenya and Eastern Uganda with the official opening of the showroom on the grounds of Kitale International School along Kitale Road -Webuye.

Roam Electric Vehicle Manufacturers was established in 2017 as an electric mobility company. The company focuses on all-electric conversion kits for fleet vehicles such as light trucks, public transport and buses, as well as electric motorcycles and energy systems.

Grace Wanjau, Managing Director of Kengra, “I am delighted that our motorists in this region now have the opportunity to use clean energy thanks to this technology. I commend Roam Electric for such a wonderful initiative that will help reduce fuel costs for our motorists and boda boda drivers, especially during these trying times. This will hopefully result in cheaper fares for commuters. This initiative is also important as it will also help reduce day-to-day operating costs by 69% by helping to reduce air pollution emitted by fossil fuel engines. »

“Roam Air is tailored and designed in detail for the African use case and with a particular focus on affordability, reliability and connectivity. An electric motorcycle designed for different commercial uses – cases such as passenger transport or of goods with safety at the forefront. This is truly a testament to our commitment to bringing world-class electric vehicle technology to the continent,” said Roam CEO and co-founder Filip Lövström.
