Nasr automobile company penned two agreements on Tuesday with Dongfeng Motor (a Chinese manufacturer) to qualify for the production of electric cars. The signing ceremony was graced by Liao Liqiang the Egyptian Chinese ambassador and Hesham Tawfik the Minister of Public Business Sector.
Tawfik detailed that it took 6 months to install electric car charging stations across the country. This also required an agreement on an appropriate fee among the three electric vehicle charging companies in Egypt. That agreed price must be reasonable enough to compete with fuel.
Thus far, 300 electric cars operate in Egypt and are serviced by 400 charging stations. The idea is to convert the entire industry into one large hub with the intent to lower fuel consumption while curbing emissions.
