Jordan driving into the future with electric cars

Government offers incentives that eliminate price advantage of conventional gas-burning vehicles, hoping to steer country towards going for the electric option.

    Jordan is driving into the future as more people switch to electric cars.

    A German company is investing in charging stations for electric cars across the country, and the government is offering incentives to consumers by removing customs fees or taxes.

    As a country that does not produce oil, there is good reason to move away from fuel burning cars.

    Al Jazeera's Natasha Ghoneim reports from Amman, Jordan.
