Firms collaborate to boost vehicle ownership
Mevron, an e-hailing cab platform, has entered into a partnership with Motor Business Service Nigeria, a subsidiary of Yamaha Motors to enhance vehicle ownership.
The Chief Executive Officer, Mevron, Mr Olawale Lasisi, who said this in his speech at the commencement of the company’s operations in Ibadan, explained that the partnership would provide residents and existing Mevron motorcyclists and tricycle riders access to two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles.
According to him, the partnership will reduce the barriers to owning motorcycles and tricycles in Africa and “empower bikers and trikers to become their own boss within a short time.”
He said, “With our partnership with MBSN, anyone that passes the application process can get a brand new two or three-wheel vehicle and begin to ride on Mevron within five days. Mevron’s plans include contract employment, which provides long-term vehicle access, and ride-to-own options that span 18 to 48 months.
“The multiple ownership methods are designed to suit bikers and trikers with diverse budgets and goals, allowing Mevron trikers and bikers who previously could not afford or finance their vehicle to become their own boss.
“This partnership reaffirms Mevron’s commitment to Africa by providing enhanced earning potential and better mobility for all. The mission has always been to “build an Africa-owned mobility service we can all be proud of”.
The Business Development Head of MBSN, Haji Rehani, said, “The launch of MBSN and our sub-Saharan Africa wide partnership with Mevron will empower Mevron bikers and trikers across the continent by providing them with a clear and affordable path to high-quality vehicle ownership.”
