ALYI Expands EV Rideshare Pilot To Ethiopia

August 24, 2021 GMT

Dallas, TX, Aug. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTC Pink: ALYI) (“ALYI”) today announced the company has expanded its Electric Vehicle (EV) Rideshare Business Pilot to Ethiopia.  The company launched a pilot in Kenya in July in conjunction with a 2,000 electric motorcycle order.  CEO Dr. Randell Torno expects to begin delivering on the 2,000 electric motorcycle order before the end of the year.  The company intends to publish a specific revenue shortly after Labor Day which falls on September 6, 2021. 

The pilot expansion in Ethiopia has been in the works for approximately the last year.  Dr. Torno visited Addis Ababa earlier this month to finalize expansion plans.

“Where Kenya uses motorcycles as taxis and delivery vehicles, Ethiopia uses three wheeled ‘Tuk Tuks,’” said Dr. Torno.  “So part of the groundwork involved in our expansion to Ethiopia included finding a Tuk Tuk manufacturer open to an EV collaboration.  We now have a manufacturer relationship and expect to have our first electric Tuk Tuk’s on the road in Ethiopia soon, well before the end of the year.”

Africa has millions of motorcycles, both two wheeled and three wheeled, deployed as taxis or boda-bodas and tuk tuks, and ALYI, as one part of its overall EV Ecosystem Business Strategy, is engaged in a project to replace combustion engine motorcycles with electric motorcycles.

The global motorcycle taxi market was valued by Verified Market Research at $16 billion in 2018 and expected to grow to over 29 billion by 2026.

ALYI has seeded an overall EV Ecosystem Business Strategy with the development of its own EV motorcycle business discussed above.

Instead of introducing a single EV product, ALYI’s business focus is on the introduction of an EV Ecosystem that addresses the entire EV adoption environment from the perpetual design of best in class vehicles to the perpetual design of the myriad of mechanical and digital systems that go into a best in class vehicle; from the charging and maintenance infrastructure that goes into supporting consumer and commercial vehicles, to the EV value proposition itself that drives consumers and businesses to transition from combustion engines to electric powered vehicles.

Ultimately, ALYI does not intend to go it alone on the overall development and rollout of its EV Ecosystem. ALYI is building a core element into its Ecosystem that attracts, if not compels the participation of all would be brand name EV industry leaders in an annual EV symposium and conference.  The EV symposium and conference will be anchored by an EV race event in Kenya that comes with a substantial brand name.

The EV race market was valued in 2019 at over $80 billion dollars and is anticipated to grow to over $200 billion by 2025

ALYI’s EV Ecosystem is founded on building participation in an EV race event as a central component in advancing EV technology and EV branding.

ALYI has been developing a partnership with a major EV racing brand for more than two years now.  Over a year ago, ALYI entered into a formal partnership agreement that includes that EV racing brand.  The first milestone objectives contemplated under the agreement have been achieved and the next steps are imminent.  ALYI expects the next steps to include naming the EV racing brand at which time, ALYI management anticipates ALYI’s overall visibility within the global EV market to be substantially elevated.

The objective of the EV symposium and conference anchored by an EV race is to advance EV technology by building EV solutions for the African market – a power constrained, rugged environment with one of the lowest per capita transportation deployments in the world.  EV solutions for the African market will be applicable the world around.  EV solutions designed and built in Africa also contribute to building an autonomous African economy. 

ALYI has designed its EV ecosystem solution to include democratized participation. ALYI has partnered with RevoltTOKEN to finance ALYI’s growth by offering participation in the EV ecosystem through the sale of Revolt Tokens.

ALYI plans to make a major announcement later this month regarding the EV race that management expects will garner substantial attention to ALYI’s overall EV Ecosystem strategy.
