Kenya: Autopax, Kofa sign deal for electric mobility expansion

Autopax, a Kenyan carmaker, and Ghanaian battery company Kofa have partnered to establish an electric motorcycle assembly and distribution plant.

Ratified during the Africa Tech Summit in Nairobi, the groundbreaking collaboration entails Autopax establishing an assembly line and distribution outlets throughout the region, while Kofa will deploy its battery swap network to facilitate electric mobility.

“This partnership not only represents a significant leap towards cleaner transport but also demonstrates our commitment to innovative solutions that meet the unique needs of Kenyan businesses and entrepreneurs,” said Autopax CEO Joy Kalua.

The motorcycles, with a capacity of approximately 250 kilograms and a range of 100 kilometers on a full charge, will be maintained for efficiency by Kofa through its Kore2 Swap and Go Network.

“We will set up a sustainable battery swap network across the region, providing a reliable solution for energy storage and management,” said the CEO of Kofa Eric Nygard.

According to data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), motorcycle imports experienced a notable decrease in three-quarters of last year compared to figures recorded in 2022.
