Ampersand is Africa’s first and leading integrated electric motorcycle and transport energy solution. We offer East Africa's five million taxi motorcyclists a commercial electric motorcycle that is cheaper from day one, provides better overall user experience and requires minimal customer behaviour change.
Using technology adapted for the local market and the right business model to achieve scale, our vehicles deliver superior driving performance, emit 75% less carbon than petrol motorcycles with zero tailpipe emissions and put over $500 a year back into drivers' pockets.
In May 2019 Ampersand launched a new era in African mobility with 20 e-motos. Since then, we have put hundreds of e-motos on the road and these are operating on a commercial basis, taking passengers and goods across Kigali and Nairobi.

Investing in the next generation of African developers and engineers is crucial to putting Africa on the map and leading the way with new technologies.
