Ethiopia’s expenditure of nearly $6 billion on fossil fuel imports last year, with over half directed towards vehicle fuel, has prompted decisive action from the nation’s Transport and Logistics Ministries. In a bold move, Ethiopia has declared that only electric vehicles will be permitted entry into the country. While the European Union recently passed legislation banning the sale of combustion engine cars in member states from 2035, Ethiopia has opted not to wait until then. This proactive stance aligns with the initiatives of several other nations, including certain US states, Canada, Japan, Singapore, India, New Zealand, and others, which have already implemented similar bans.
