For The First Time, Electric 3-Wheelers Have Come To Ethiopian Market

By Shoma Makuuchi

Terra Motors Japanese leading innovator of electric motorcycle and three-wheelers, have decided to sell the Indian based EV 3-wheelers in Ethiopia with Rose Business Group, one of the largest multi international company which has their branches in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania as well.

Terra Motors have been supplying the means of transportation to people of India and Bangladesh and have been successful.

There are a significant number of people in both countries that travels by 3-wheeled vehicle. Terra Motors produces an Electronic powered rickshaw.

This EV 3-wheeler has been a superior alternative to the petrol powered 3-wheeler as the EV makes less sound and does not contaminate the atmosphere like its petrol powered counterpart. In India 700,000 was already sold and 500,000 was sold in Bangladesh.

We, Terra Motors, can proudly say that our e-Rickshaws are made to be used as a primary method of transportation in India and Bangladesh.

The main reason our EV 3-wheelers were welcomed in South Asia was that our battery life is long and charging the battery costs less than re-fueling petrol powered vehicle. We feel that this benefit should be spread across the world.
