Suzuki cars are safe, passed safety test – Uber Ghana

Uber Ghana, a provider of ride-hailing services, has refuted claims that the Suzuki S Presso cars currently in its fleet are dangerous.

Following allegations that the Suzuki S Presso cars sold in Ghana violated international crash test standards and received a zero rating from the New Car Assessment Programme, Uber Ghana faced anger on social media (NCAAP).

Marjorie Saint-Lot, Country Manager for Uber Ghana and Ivory Coast, claims that the S Presso currently on the market is different from the vehicles from 2020 that failed the crash-test in the videos in circulation while speaking to the media about Uber Ghana’s rollout of its new mobility and safety features.

“I simply want to make it clear that the S Presso cars on our platform are from 2022 and that they underwent a crash test on July 29, 2022, from the same global NCAAP. We are not referring about the same vehicle because they released a 3 star, she stated.

As of today, Uber is accessible in 6 cities in Ghana and 18 cities around West Africa. It has recently announced its expansion into Tamale and Sunyani in Ghana.

To assist cut expenses for riders and improve demand for drivers, Uber has announced the roll out of two new products, UberX Share in Ghana. When paired with a fellow rider going in the same direction, the product enables users to save up to 30%.

With the introduction of Uber Comfort, riders will have more options for customizing their trips and will enjoy an improved on-trip experience, while drivers will have an additional opportunity to make money.

Ghana is a significant market for Uber in Sub-Saharan Africa, as explained by Marjorie Saint-Lot, Head of Ghana and Ivory Coast. As we develop, we are dedicated to releasing a line of goods that showcase our familiarity with the regional market. Riders will have access to dependable and accessible means of transportation as we grow and provide additional goods, and drivers will have more options to earn money.”

Additionally, according to research and studies, Uber claims that the majority of riders appear to be unaware of the safety features that are accessible to them.

In order to encourage users to finish their safety profile by activating and using the available features like Trusted Contacts, PIN verification, and RideCheck, they are introducing Safety Check-up across SSA.
