Jospong to distribute e-cars in Africa

The Jospong Group of Companies has signed an agreement with a foreign partner to develop and construct public charging infrastructure across the country to promote the penetration of electric vehicles.

The deal is part of a partnership agreement signed with VinFast Auto, a Vietnamese electric car pioneer, and announced by the Ghanaian multi-industry conglomerate that operates across West Africa.

Jospong Group will also become the distributor of VinFast’s entire product line in Ghana and the African market, including electric automobiles, e-scooters, e-bikes, and electric buses.

The partnership with VinFast demonstrates the Jospong Group’s dedication to provide green and smart solutions in its business, whether waste management or transportation, for customers in Africa and the world at large.

The Chief Operation Officer of VinFast North America, Steve Tran, said: “Ghana and West African electric vehicles market is poised to grow, and we’re honoured to be at the forefront of this revolution alongside a leading Ghanaian corporation”.

“Together, we’re committed to building a sustainable future for Ghana by providing a comprehensive electric transportation ecosystem, from bicycles and cars to buses, with flexible sales, ensuring everyone can join the clean transportation revolution,” he added.

The strategic collaboration  between Vingroup and VinFast, and Jospong Group could present an opportunity to cement their foothold in the region’s electric vehicle market and emerge as frontrunners in the broader sustainable transportation industry.

The electric vehicle market in Ghana and West Africa is poised for significant expansion, driven by burgeoning demand and government initiatives aimed at achieving net-zero emissions in the transportation sector.

Ghana’s government envisions a future landscape where a substantial portion of gas stations will be repurposed to cater for sustainable transportation alternatives such as electric vehicles by 2040.
