This will optimise sales of the electric two-wheelers assembled by Spiro’s engineers and, above all, reduce air pollution in these East and West African countries, where combustion vehicles are still king. “With 9,000 electric motorbikes on the road, 2 million battery replacements carried out and 75 million kilometres travelled cleanly, Spiro is at the forefront of the green revolution in Africa, fuelling economies, creating jobs and stimulating sustainable growth,” says the company headed by Jules Samain.
