In a bid to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable last mile logistics, a revolutionary electric motorcycle specifically designed for B2B last mile delivery has been launched by Xoom Volt Motors.
Set up under the leadership of Saif Jaffar Suhail Markhan Alketbi, Xoom Volt is a UAE based start-up whose vision is to accelerate sustainability in Last Mile Logistics. They are also the first EV venture to sign the responsible climate companies pledge with the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) and UEFA in support of the UAE Net Zero 2050 initiative. This alliance with MOCCAE and UAE Alliance for Climate Action is a testimony to their commitment to the UAE Net Zero Strategy.
“The carbon footprint of the last mile has long been an environmental and societal challenge. At Xoom Volt, our aspiration is to make a substantial contribution to reduce GHG emissions in last mile logistics,” said Saif Jaffar Suhail Markhan Alketbi
Leveraging on industry leading solutions from VMOTO International Ltd., Xoom Volt has launched its first B2B electric motorcycle VS1.
The bike boasts a sleek and modern German design, with a powerful electric motor that can reach a top speed of 100 kilometres per hour. It has a range of 160 kilometres, comes with a one-push reverse button, a USB charging port as well as an air circuit breaker, making it a perfect choice for B2B deliveries.
The transport sector accounts for almost 24% of GHG emissions (of which a significant portion is contributed by last mile logistics). Combustion motorcycles in particular, have been identified as a major contributor to air pollution and climate change. Today, last mile delivery in the UAE is the exclusive preserve of combustion motorcycles. Without a paradigm shift in this approach, a 32% jump in carbon emissions from urban delivery traffic is expected by 2030. Xoom Volt’s VS1 aims to address this issue by offering a zero-emission alternative that does not compromise on performance or style.
“We are absolutely thrilled to launch VS1 in the market. Our goal is to provide a last mile transportation solution that is both efficient and sustainable. It is imperative that the UAE switch to green mile logistics to reduce emission, drive down costs and future-proof our businesses,” said Faisal Imtiaz, CEO, Xoom Volt Motors.
VS1 is now available for purchase at the Xoom Volt dealership in Dubai. With its eco-friendly features, powerful motor, and sleek design, VS1 is sure to make a splash in the last mile delivery segment and provide a better alternative for eco-conscious supply chain owners.
