Atlas was co-founded by Mohammed Yehya El Bakkali, the company CEO, and Mohammed Hicham Senhaji Hannoun, the company’s Executive Chairman and CTO, with substantial private funding.

The pair combine a visionary approach with a strategic understanding of the need for practical, pragmatic, and viable solutions, particularly in emerging markets with little or no EV infrastructure.
