Officials in Bhutan struggle to implement public transportation that can handle this challenging geography. Trains, subways, and streetcars can’t get throughout the country because it’s too hilly and complicated. For those who can afford them, cars are still the preferred mode of transportation.
To offset these rising emissions, Bhutan is encouraging the usage of electric vehicles. It hasn’t been an easy transition, though. However, the cost of electric vehicles is high, and the programme can only subsidise so much of the price.
The Bhutan Electric Vehicle Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The COVID-19 epidemic has reportedly had an impact on the importation of electric vehicles (EVs) and the supply chain for Bhutan’s Sustainable Low Emission Urban Transport System.
Since the dealers first ordered the electric vehicles, a year has passed. He continued by saying that the COVID-19 epidemic is causing an economic crisis that is affecting the entire world.
Shanghai’s port is severely congested. At the harbour, millions of containers are stacked. EVs are made in China, and because to the COVID-19 outbreak, all trading has decreased. The automobiles have been produced, and they are located at the Shanghai port.
The new development is that the tendering process has been eliminated. They have let any car dealers to import any brands of EVs and sell them to anyone, but if they want to sell to a specific taxi driver by taking use of the subsidies, they will have quality control.
Additionally, they created a quality specification. Everything will be examined, and if it meets the requirements, subsidies will be awarded.
