Chinese firm sets up an electric vehicle assembly plant in Rwanda

Tailing Electric Vehicle, a Chinese corporation, has opened a motorbike and tricycle assembly facility in Rwanda in an effort to reduce global emissions and develop a green economy.

The assembly factory, which is located in the Gahanga industrial zone, Gahanga sector, Kicukiro district, has begun assembling, marketing, and servicing new energy electric cars. Electric bikes, scooters, and tricycles are among the company's offerings.
"Unlike cars that run on petrol, our company's electric vehicles run on 100 percent electric motors that require a continual supply of energy from batteries," Tiger Hoo, the plant's managing director, explained.
He stated that the goal is for Rwandans to be able to transition to a sustainable, clean, and efficient transportation system that is both inexpensive and cost effective.
According to him, electric cars would help the Rwandan government develop a green transportation system and achieve zero emissions in the country's transportation sector.
"Our goods will enhance Rwandans' transportation needs since the electric cars are developed with Rwanda's topography in mind," added Hoo.
He stated that the corporation has already established showrooms and manufacturing factories in African nations such as South Africa, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda.
Rwanda established a trial electric motorbike project in Kigali last year to assist the country achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
According to the Rwanda Environment Management Authority's 2018 Inventory of Sources of Air Pollution in Rwanda study, automobile emissions are the primary cause of air pollution in Kigali and other metropolitan areas in the central African country.
