Jordan Studying Electric Transit in Cooperating with China's BYD
AMMAN -- The Ministry of Environment is studying the introduction of electric cars and buses to the public sector fleet to reduce emissions and cut down on fuel costs, an official said on Sunday.
The vehicles being studied operate fully on electricity and produce no carbon dioxide emissions, Ministry of Environment Spokesperson Isa Shboul told The Jordan Times.
"The ministry and Onyx International Trade and Investment Company signed a memorandum of understanding last week to promote the use of electric cars in the country," Shboul said.
The company is the exclusive partner in Jordan of BYD Auto, a Chinese manufacturer of hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
