Mode Mobility is an engineering and design startup focusing on development of sustainable mobility solutions. Currently Mode Mobility is developing a line of battery-electric scooters as a sustainable solution for urban mobility.

The saga of Mode Mobility starts in October 2012 when the founders Shah Talha Sohail and Syed Najiullah Hussaini who were mechanical engineering students at the time joined the then Formula NUST Racing Team. During their 3 years with the team, the duo played a pivotal role in setting the strategic and technical direction of the team. While Shah Talha led the Marketing, Business, and Financial side of things, Najiullah oversaw the Engineering and Racing aspects. Shah Talha and Najiullah established a cohesive and dynamic work culture within the team which set it up for success.

After their Formula Student adventures, Shah Talha and Najiullah moved away from the NUST Formula Student Team to start their careers. Talha started a successful career in Marketing and Advertising within the Interactive Group of Companies, one of the principal sponsors of the NUST Formula Student Team. Shah Talha later co-founded an e-commerce company Trademor. Najiullah meanwhile went to Australia to pursue a master’s degree in automotive engineering, he remained involved in Formula Student in Australia as a participant as well as a judge. Upon completing his master’s degree, he returned to Pakistan and started a career as an academic and researcher. He has since been involved in numerous Research and Development projects within the automotive domain.

Despite leading successful careers, both Shah Talha and Najiullah kept yearning for the excitement and energy of their Formula Student days. Their shared passion for automotive design and their entrepreneurial spirit compelled them start a new venture together. They thoroughly analysed the Pakistani automotive industry; the mobility needs of the Pakistani society and the global trends in automotive design and engineering. They set up Mode Mobility in late 2019 with the aim of sustainably meeting mobility needs of the Pakistani society as well as those of other countries like Pakistan.

Soon after the idea of Mode Mobility had crystalized, the world was thrown into a tailspin by the COVID-19 pandemic. Shah Talha and Najiullah were soon joined by Shayan Mahmud as Co-Founder bringing with him rich entrepreneurial experience. 2020 was a year filled with crises and personal losses for the co-founders like so many people across the globe. However, driven by passion, the co-founders kept chipping away at the idea and were soon joined by other like-minded team members. Today Mode Mobility is poised to launch a line of Battery-Electric scooter and motorcycles aimed at urban users.
