Basi­Go Ltd.

Basi­Go is an elec­tric mobil­i­ty start-up that aims to rev­o­lu­tionise pub­lic trans­port by offer­ing pub­lic trans­port bus own­ers a low-cost elec­tric alter­na­tive to diesel.

Head­quar­tered in Nairo­bi, Kenya, our team is made up of expe­ri­enced entre­pre­neurs who have spent more than a decade work­ing and inno­vat­ing in the fields of elec­tric vehi­cle tech­nol­o­gy, mobil­i­ty in Africa and renew­able ener­gy financ­ing. We are a team ded­i­cat­ed to cre­at­ing a sus­tain­able mobil­i­ty rev­o­lu­tion in Africa.

Basi­Go will offer 25- and 36-seat bus­es with a tar­get­ed range of more than 250 km, allow­ing car­ri­ers to spend a full day on the road before return­ing to a recharg­ing station.

To reduce the acqui­si­tion cost of its elec­tric bus­es, Basi­Go is intro­duc­ing an inno­v­a­tive “Pay-As-You-Go” bat­tery financ­ing mod­el. With this mod­el, Basi­Go offers elec­tric bus­es at the same ini­tial cost as diesel bus­es and then finances the bat­tery and charg­ing through a sep­a­rate usage-based fee.
