Ethiopia on Monday launched the primary locally-assembled electric car in yet another green economy activity by the East African country.
The vehicle was displayed to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed by previous Olympic champion and 10,000m runner Haile Gebrselassie.
The car was manufactured by the Marathon Motor Engineering company, a joint venture between Ethiopia’s incredible former Olympic winner and 10,000m runner Haile Gebrselassie and South Korean car producer Hyundai.
Reports suggest that the vehicle can go for more than 250 kilometers once completely charged. The vehicle can be charged anyplace and does not require charging at terminal, in expansion to it not giving out emissions.
