Zimbabwe To Manufacture Electric Car Via SA Based Company
A green-tech South Africa-based company Agilitee, which manufactures electric cars and motorcycles, says it will set up assembly plants to produce the vehicles in Zimbabwe.
Agilitee will on Friday launch new products in SA, as it prepares to open up shop in Zimbabwe in a few weeks said a close source.
Under the National Renewable Energy Policy (NERP), Government has set out clear objectives to minimise greenhouse emissions by promoting use of Electric Vehicles (EVs), introduction of biofuels and ethanol blending.
With Zimbabwe’s vehicle population ever expanding, EVs are seen as the solution to reduce the fuel import bill and cut down on harmful emissions whilst also supporting the global drive to combat climate change.
Speaking from his base in SA Agilitee chief executive Dr Mandla Lamba said in Africa, Zimbabwe has one of the best policies to promote the EVs industry.
