UAE-based ONE MOTO expands to India
ONE MOTO Technologies and CS Group sign a dealership and distribution contract for an aggressive expansion plan throughout India. The new dealership announcement will see the ONE MOTO, the UAE/British brand of electric vehicles, access India’s motorcycle market that is one of the largest globally with 37 million vehicles on the road. The new agreement expands ONE MOTO’s presence globally that includes UK, UAE, Kenya and Saudi Arabia, currently.
“We’re able to sustainably impact the way we commute, by efficiently swapping out parts, upgrading and recycling – enabling owners to only ever need ONE MOTO, creating generational loyalty to the brand and products. We have a very strategic and aggressive road map for India and securing a partner like CS Group is a huge win for us,” pointed out Adam Ridgway, CEO, ONE MOTO Technologies.
The multi-award winning, UAE based EV manufacturer has been in active discussions with CS Group aligning values and challenging the future for Indian mobility, joining other EV champions of Tesla, Hero and Mahindra.
With a growing demand for EVs in India, the timing of the deal is ideal for the launch and supporting the ambition to positively impact climate change.
Muzammil Riyaz, CEO, CS Group remarked; “CSG is excited with this new venture in partnership with ONE MOTO. Hailing from India, I am aware of the growing need for alternative solutions to fossil-based transport owing to its fluctuating prices. E-vehicles will provide the much-needed respite. We aim to move towards a more economical drive and deliver to people an opportunity to upgrade their means of mobility. We’ll be presenting ONE MOTO aggressively throughout the country over the next three years and working on the manufacturing facility to further enhance the sustainable values of the business.”
Over the past 12 months, the team at ONE MOTO have discussed with customers, industry leaders and government officials in the UAE and a compendium of previously published articles about air pollution and the affects motorcycles have on our environment, and the one that shocks is the CO2 produced by 15,000 delivery motorcycles in Dubai, not only are they 16x more harmful to the environment that SUVs or busses (if they are well maintained), but 50x more damaging if they aren’t maintained to factory standards, producing over 8,000 percent more carbon monoxide.
