Falcon, a pioneer for safe, sustainable and healthy tech-enabled, micromobility solutions in Qatar, signed an exclusive partnership with Swiftmile, the US developer of light electric vehicle charging systems.

Under the deal, Falcon will act as exclusive partner for Swiftmile to roll out app-enabled solutions at transportation hubs later this year, testing Swiftmile electric vehicle charging stations in Qatar with Falcon’s fleet of e-bikes, e-scooters and e-mopeds, and other autonomous vehicles.

According to Falcon co-founder and managing director Hussain Abdulla, the deal represents a key milestone of their plan, to bring the latest technologies and solutions to the country to help the last mile connectivity – or micromobility – in cities and destinations.

Already operating the biggest charging hubs and docking stations in the US and Europe, Swiftmile has the proven technology to assist us in reaching our goal of becoming an international brand which solves major transport issues with sustainable and health promotion solutions.

Swiftmile views the agreement as furthering their goal of enabling the adoption of micromobility worldwide. Swiftmile is pleased to expand in a region increasingly focused on adopting electronic mobility and poised for tremendous growth.

Swiftmile co-founder John McGraw said that governments throughout the region are eager to pursue more sustainable transport solutions as they look to provide citizens with optimum mobility solutions while curbing carbon emissions.

In Falcon we have found a like-minded partner which is fully committed to creating the future of transportation, which is electric, both within Qatar and the wider region.

Falcon was established by three Qatari investors with strong management, and supported by international partners, with entrepreneurial expertise in ride sharing schemes, artificial intelligence, and advanced technology. The company plans to deliver micromobility solutions to cities and destinations throughout MENA, linked to other transportation modes such as buses, trains and cars.

Qatar is Falcon’s testing ground. The company plans to open many ‘Nests’ or docking stations for its e-fleet which people can book via the Falcon app. Eventually, the company’s sustainable, battery-powered micromobility vehicles will dot the country’s streets, providing last-mile connectivity to people who want a convenient transportation mode without heavily polluting the atmosphere.

Falcon is investing heavily in renewable energy. Its vehicle charging options will include those powered by solar technology while its Doha Falcon Hospital repair and storage facility, which will also house the AI-driven operations control centre, will run entirely on renewable energy.
