Urban Sphere to Export 500 Made in India Electric Buses to Kenya

Urban Sphere, a leading Indian electric bus manufacturer, has solidified its international footprint by securing two significant Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) shortly after unveiling its debut model – the Urban Sphere Ivoryline.

The first agreement, with Espresso Limited in Kenya, involves the supply of 500 Ivoryline electric buses. This collaboration signifies a landmark in revolutionizing public transportation in Kenya and underscores Urban Sphere’s steadfast commitment to contributing to sustainable development globally.

The second MOU, signed with Procurabl, strategically positions Urban Sphere to establish a robust localization strategy for manufacturing the Ivoryline series. Recognizing the importance of partnering with local entities, Urban Sphere aims to promote indigenous manufacturing practices, thereby fostering growth within the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) sector.

In addition, Urban Sphere has also secured a MOU to supply Ivoryline 6m electric buses to the Philippines. The commitment involves delivering over 50,000 units over the next decade, reinforcing Urban Sphere’s position as a key player in the global electric mobility landscape.

Urban Sphere proudly announces that 70% of the Ivoryline is developed and manufactured in India, in collaboration with Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises.

The Urban Sphere R&D Facility, located in Vassanthanarsapura Industrial Area, Tumkur District, Karnataka, plays a pivotal role in realizing this groundbreaking product.
