The Minister of Trade and Industry, Tarek Kabil, announced that you can now import used electric cars, three years old being the maximum. You might be wondering, where are the charging stations that will power it? Right around February ― in cooperation with the state-owned gas station ― Wataneya and Revolta created the first electric charging station on the Cairo – Suez highway.
Kabil’s decision to allow the import of used cars is in light of Egypt’s direction at attaining their sustainable developmental goals using renewable energy, Zawya reported.
Revolta is the first company to have a forward-looking plan to build an infrastructure for electric charging stations: 65 of them covering 7 main governorates. So far, Revolta has launched charging stations located in BUE, Arkan Plaza, Al Guziera Plaza, Kattameya, Mirage Mall, and Holiday Inn Citystars.
The company also sells electric cars (Tesla and Hyundai), starting from a whopping price of 750k LE.
