Best option for your wallet and the environment
It costs up to 80% less to run and operate the eGuta compared to the petrol-powered alternative, plus no need to worry about oil changes and other services typical of an internal combustion engine.
Rather than relying on expensive foreign imports, eGuta takes advantage of parts already widely available and affordable in the local market, from tires and suspensions to smaller parts like bearings.
Charging the eGuta is as fast as a 3 minute swap for a fully charged battery, which can also be used to power a full range of household and business needs.
A champion for addressing climate change, with zero direct CO2 emissions, and fully powered by clean energy.
Powered by a silent electric motor with none of the toxic fumes of an internal combustion engine.
Powered by the Sun
Of which African countries have plenty!
As well as facilitating energy independence and so protecting local retail prices against fluctuating oil prices, solar is also the most sustainable and coolest way we can power human civilizations as nature intended.
Just swap and off you GO!

Locally inspired. Locally developed.
In building our zero-emission retail logistics operation in Arusha, we identified a strong need for a versatile and locally adapted electric cargo bike. This led us to look for local inspiration and develop the ultimate electric cargo bike: the eGuta.
Inspired by the locally popular Guta, we set out to develop the next-generation cargo bike for Africa.
Fuse local knowledge with our best understanding of modern clean technologies.
Countless hours of staring at a screen causing a design to go dizzy with a rotation tool.
