IBL Energy and Vivo Energy have launched E-Motion which will facilitate electrical vehicle (EV) charging through a vast network of fast charging stations throughout Mauritius.

This initiative was welcomed by Alan Ganoo, Minister of Road Transport and Light Rail, who also announced that the National Transport Corporation (CNT) intends in the near future to operate 200 electric buses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while promoting an ecological mode of transport.


E-Motion provides the country with its very first network of charging stations for electric cars. To date, twenty terminals have been installed in different places on the island to meet the needs of those with electric vehicles in terms of reliability and speed. The locations identified are situated near highways, shopping centres, gas stations, health facilities, hotels etc.


E-Motion will offer a subscription on an annual basis with three packages. When subscribing, the customer will receive a smart card that has different options dependent on the user's requirements. Companies with a fleet of vehicles will have a corporate option to suit their requirements.  


The E-Motion terminal network is connected to Electromaps, a mobile application that will allow the user to locate the nearest charging station.
