Electric vehicles are particularly environmentally friendly because they consume little to no fossil fuels, have fewer moving components that need to be maintained, and have minimal operating expenses (petrol or diesel).
While some electric cars (EVs) employed lead acid or nickel metal hydride batteries, lithium ion batteries are now thought to be the industry standard for battery electric vehicles due to their longer lifespan, excellent energy retention, and self discharge rate of only 5% per month.
Although attempts have been made to increase the safety of these batteries, there are still issues with them due to the possibility of thermal runaway, which has, for instance, led to fires or explosions .
EVs can be charged overnight at home, giving them enough range for routine trips. Although regenerative braking or traveling downhill can help reduce this by charging the battery packs, longer or more difficult trips may need charging the fuel cells before users arrive at their destination.
The Liberia 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.
A Dutch start-up company called Emergi, which specialises in green energy technology, intends to introduce the first electric vehicle, called “Kekeh,” to the Liberian market. Emergi is searching for funding to move from the prototype stage to the manufacturing stage. Recently, the startup started a fundraising effort to raise EUR .
Soon, a carbon-free urban mobility option might be available in Liberia. The Dutch start-up Emergi, which specialises in renewable energy, created the three-wheeled electric car under the name “Kekeh.
“The lack of funding to move Kekeh’s electrical power from the prototype stage to the manufacturing phase is a challenge the start-up in West Africa is now facing. Therefore, Emergi just started a fundraising effort for Liberians.
