This is not just Nigerian serving senator, Ben Bruce but some other elites turning their attention to electric cars. In recent news in the automotive scene, there has been a strong readiness from the vehicle manufacturing companies and stakeholders to manufacture and introduce to the market lots of electric cars before year 2025.
In a bid to ensure that other countries in world do not turn Nigeria to dumping site when the gasoline vehicles are extinct due to the introduction of electric vehicles, Nigeria as a country should take drastic steps towards accommodating electric vehicles in her auto policies. A big auto brand like Renault Motors has decided that by 2022, to have introduced up to 20 different models of electric vehicles to the market. Even the Volkswagen, a German automobile company has decided to invest a whooping sum of 84 billion dollars into electric vehicles by 2030.
Electric cars in few years will start replacing the gasoline powered vehicle commonly used
What is quite worrisome is that there are over 2 million electric vehicles in the world and the Nigerian auto market is still shut to this modern technology. This is why it is important for the Nigerian government to have wake up call for these in its new policy on auto industry.
The positive development to this is that the Nigerian automaker that has its headquarter at Katshina, Nigus Enfinity has decided to start assembling electric cars in Nigeria by the year 2020.
Unknown to quite a number of Nigerians, in a statement made by the Marketing Management of KIA Motors in Nigeria, Jimoh Olawale, noted that the country has already introduced the use of electric vehicles since 2015 and that Kia Motors is at the forefront of bringing such to Nigerian auto market. He revealed that the Nigerian sitting Senator, Ben Bruce and other elites in the country are already using the electric vehicles made by Kia Motors.
