You may be driving an electric car by year 2030. Volvo car, a Swedish car maker has announced its transition to start selling electric cars by 2030.
Countries such as the United Kingdom (UK) have revealed a climate plan to burn the use of vehicles using fuel or petrol and transition to the use of electric cars, thus car makers are under pressure to quicken their electronic car plans.
To ease the transition, electric cars will start to cost the same as those using petrol between 2025 and 2029, depending on the car type. This is an effort for the world to save the environment from pollution.
Electric Motorbike Launched In Kenya
In Kenya, The United Nations Development Programme (UNEP) on 2nd March, 2021 launched a pilot electric motorbike. The good news is that the bike can be assembled here in Kenya and made locally.
The Kenya Power is to partner with UNEP and put up electric hubs for the charging of the motorbikes.
The boda boda industry in Kenya has become an employment sector for young people and they are commonly used in the rural areas, to navigate through the bad roads.
What matters now is if the bikes will be accepted to the market. This will only depend on the price and availability of charging spots, especially in the rural areas where they are a mode of transport and source of income to many youths.
