Rwanda’s EV Startup Ampersand Partners with BYD for Expansion

By Osamu Ekhator

Ampersand’s press statement described BYD’s lithium iron phosphate (LFP) cells as low-cost batteries with a long lifespan and an excellent safety record for everyday users, making them ideal for mass-market electric vehicles.

This development will form part of the broader mission to electrify most of Africa’s 30 million commercial motorbikes, most of which still run on fuel.
