With intentions of obviously to shift towards a more ecofriendly transport solution, Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay of Bhutan is reportedly weighting its options as far as shifting towards electric-powered vehicles for their government owned fleet as well as taxis.
PM Tobgay was said to have already made preliminatry inquiries, holding discussions with known EV car companies such as Nissan and Tesla.
Bhutan has been known to rely heavily on taxis for their transport use, covering a population of about 120,000. At the moment, the taxi drivers over there reportedly spend rought $13 daily but a shift to electric powered cars could save them a lot.
Aside from taxis, Tobgay is also looking to install charging stations to compliment the potential shift towards electric-powered cars.
