How we do it
Our taxis are electric vehicles that can be charged using standard household plugs. We are working towards using exclusively solar power to recharge our batteries.
Our fleet is equipped with hardware and software that allows us to collect data. We use this data to make our fleet management efficient and use a pay-go system.
Proven quality, comfort and the required range. Minimim maintenance needed.
Where we are
Money - can't live without it!
We are currently in contact with several interested investors to secure $500,000 for our pilot. This funding will go towards acquiring ten electric vehicles, paying import costs and taxes, adjust the vehicle to the local context, building and purchasing the fleet management and pay-go software and build a team to run the pilot and prepare for expansion.
Partnerships - can't progress without them!
We have met with the Senegalese Ministry of Transport and the Executive Transport Authority of Dakar who are keen to collaborate with us to see how we can make sure we are integrated with their plans. We are also in contact with several car suppliers, taxi and logistic software platforms, energy suppliers or mobile money providers, to make sure we work with the best.
Team - united we stand!
This is a big project with big ambitions to use business as a force for good, and we can't do it alone. As soon as we receive pilot funding, we will be looking for an experienced and dynamic project assistant, and soon after that we will be recruiting team members with various skills to help us set up our operations.
