ezBike: Revolutionizing Mobility or Just another startup?

The company aims to develop the EV ecosystem in the country but is it that EZ?

The lack of quality mobility infrastructure in Pakistan is an inescapable fact. The government and the private sector have come up with solutions to this problem in the shape of initiatives like Metro Bus service and private ride hailing companies like Careem, Uber and Bykea. However, these solutions are insufficient to improve the deplorable state of the country’s transportation network. As per the World Bank, “Insufficient transport infrastructure results in congestion, delay delivery time, fuel waste, pollution and accidents which build inefficiencies in the economy and costs the economy 4 to 6 percent of GDP each year.”

An Islamabad based mobility startup ezBike plans to alleviate Pakistan’s mobility vows by providing electric scooters as an alternative transport solution. The company plans to commence production and sales of electric scooters following a million dollar raise in a pre-seed round. ezBike was launched in October 2020 as Pakistan’s first electric scooter sharing service by Mohammad Hadi, a former investment banker, and Ali Moeen, a software executive. Since its inception, the startup claims it has boarded over 100,000 customers who can book an ezBike parked around the city of Islamabad. 

The recently raised capital would be used to build a comprehensive ecosystem of its own for electric two-wheelers, including an electric scooter assembly facility, and low-cost lithium-ion battery production which will lower the cost of electric scooters for customers.

The business idea might seem attractive but are the fundamentals present for this startup to grow in a sustainable way?

The content in this publication is expensive to produce. But unlike other journalistic outfits, business publications have to cover the very organizations that directly give them advertisements. Hence, this large source of revenue, which is the lifeblood of other media houses, is severely compromised on account of Profit’s no-compromise policy when it comes to our reporting. No wonder, Profit has lost multiple ad deals, worth tens of millions of rupees, due to stories that held big businesses to account.

Hence, for our work to continue unfettered, it must be supported by discerning readers who know the value of quality business journalism, not just for the economy but for the society as a whole.
