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.
