To achieve the environmental goal of zero emission, green mobility or electric vehicles are now becoming a necessity of the modern era. For society, EVs need to be sustainable, and the electric vehicle architecture will make that possible. In order to adopt drivetrain electrification, vehicle architecture must be adaptable.
To surpass Europe as the continent’s largest market for electric vehicles, South Africa also aims to establish itself as an internationally competitive centre for the production of electric vehicles. To make EVs more competitive with gasoline vehicles in that market, a new e-mobility roadmap is being developed.
According to the suggested roadmap, South Africa would increase funding for the development and expansion of both new and existing manufacturing facilities to support the manufacture of NEVs.
According to South Africa’s department of commerce, industry, and competition, this also includes the manufacturing of EV components, with battery manufacturing being a top focus.
The South Africa EV Components Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The Botswana government is inviting domestic and foreign businesses with proven track records and necessary skills to express interest in producing electric vehicles and related components in Botswana.
In order to build an e-mobility sector in Botswana, the government plans to collaborate with recognised manufacturers. The co-operation intends to produce EVs and associated parts in Botswana in order to deliver locally produced EVs for local and regional markets.
The Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC), Botswana Institute for Technology Research and Innovation (BITRI), Citizen Entrepreneurial Development Agency (CEDA), and the Botswana Development Corporation are among the partner organisations from Botswana included in the EOI.
