Kofa and TAILG’s Electric Journey: Revolutionising Transport in Africa

TAILG Group reached a formal cooperation with Kofa, a Ghanaian company focusing on battery swap networks, to jointly develop a battery swap electric motorcycle called Jidi. First orders of the Jidi are expected to arrive in Ghana at the end of 2023.

Based on the advantages of Kofa batteries and battery swap networks, the Jidi will reduce rider costs by up to 30%. The partnership aims at deploying 200,000 vehicles using the Kofa battery swap network by 2030. This partnership will also require the construction of over 5000 battery swap stations across the continent.
