Rwanda to launch electric vehicles

A key part of the plan is to cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the nation’s dependence on imported fossil fuels, which account for 40% of the country’s foreign exchange expenditure. Electric cars, their spare parts, batteries and charging station equipment have been exempted from VAT, import and excise duties. Rwanda might not be the obvious place to launch electric vehicles. The rugged, rural terrain would be tough on any car, but particularly models that have to lug around heavy batteries. Do you think that this will have any impact on climate change ?
