Rabat – The Moroccan city of Ben Guerir, in Morocco’s central Rehamna province, is taking on “Rehamna E-Mob,” a sustainable mobility project, in partnership with the city’s Green Energy Park.
The governor of the Rehamna province, Aziz Bouignane, and the co-chair of the Green Energy Park, Badr Ikken, presented local authorities with 30 electric motorcycles.
Ikken took to social media to celebrate that the exchange, which occurred on Friday, November 15 during the celebratory launch of “Rehamna E-Mob” at the Rehamna province’s headquarters in Ben Guerir.
The electric motorcycles feature electric wheels rather than standard wheels. They are more economical and require almost no maintenance, and have similar prices to their standard counterparts.
Teams of researchers will monitor the 30 motorcycles, in partnership with Ben Guerir’s Green Energy Park.
The researchers will examine the motorcycles’ battery performance and social impact. Ikken explained that the researchers aim to use their observations to design more efficient models that can be introduced on a larger scale in more Moroccan cities.
The province of Rehamna hopes to inspire more Moroccans to swap their standard motorcycles for the more sustainable electric motorcycles.
