M Auto and Togolese Government team up to speed up transition to electric mobility

(Togo First) - M Auto, a firm that makes and sells electric bikes, wants to help Togo transition to electric mobility. The company said so in a statement dated October 11, 2022, relayed by the Ecofin Agency.

"M Auto wants to help drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote a more virtuous mobility in Togo," the company wrote. M Auto claims to have sold and put into circulation 2,000 of its electric bikes and it boasts more than 3 million kilometers traveled in 3 months and has 2,500 orders confirmed and pending delivery.

M Auto’s bikes are made in Africa for Africans. The company affirms that its Commando bikes emit less gas than combustion bikes (5 t of CO2/y). Also, it claims that its recharging stations rely on captive solar networks. 

"Affordable electric mobility, therefore, has a major role to play in reducing carbon emissions in Africa," M Auto wrote in the statement. The firm, it should be emphasized, is supported by the African Transformation and Industrialization Fund (ATIF).

M Auto is committed to the energy transition and sourcing at least 95% of its energy from renewable sources in all its operations, from manufacturing to battery recharging.

This commitment should greatly contribute to Togo’s ambition to emit fewer greenhouse gases, through its “Transition to electric mobility” project launched last month.  Set to be carried out over four years, the project is backed by the Global Environment Fund (GEF) which invested over CFA860 million in it.
