Do you want to enjoy a ride in an Electric car in Ghana! You get to pay less and save the environment.
Affordable transportation is essential considering the increasing cost of diesel/petrol which have more than increased transportation fares to about 100% since the beginning of the year. Also, with growing demand for access to transportation options comes the increasing negative impact of pollution.
SolarTaxi, the first e-mobility company established in Ghana, has launched Africa’s first Electric car dedicated ride hailing mobile app on the market to offer customers a green, cleaner option for their convenience and value for money at 80% cheaper.
The SolarTaxi App which was launched on the 1st of April, 2022, will start in Accra (available now only in East Legon and Airport in a 10km radius), Ghana’s most populated city with heavy traffic at most times. SolarTaxi promises to benefit users during the traffic surges on the other ride hailing app with cheaper cost of services and zero cost of fuel consumption to drivers. The company estimates that to save 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year while saving the average Ghanaian commuted by 10,000 cedis each year on transportation cost.
Unlike other ride hailing apps who introduce increased prices during peak times, SolarTaxi provides a standard charge every time of the day even during peak times.
This innovative initiative does not only seek to provide customers the best of transport services but to contribute to climate change issues and appeal more to environmental enthusiasts. SolarTaxi also proves to be an opportunity for job creation for Ghanaians.
The Head of SolarTaxi Ride, Gilbert Sefa Nuwordu, commenting on the new initiative said, “As a company we seek to offer new and innovative ways of transport. Our main aim is to offer e-mobility services in a clean and environmentally friendly manner. SolarTaxi App is the new offering that will seek to offer cheap and affordable transportation to residents of East Legon and Airport in a 10km radius. All the vehicles will be electric and we will offer 80% cheaper rates than what’s already on the market. We are looking to onboard 100 electric cars by the close of the year translating to 100 jobs for the youth.”
