Moçambique vai apostar na instalação de unidade de montagem de autocarros eléctricos

The Government and a private partner intend to install an assembly unit for electric buses in the country to boost passenger transport in Mozambique, with a long-term vision of using national graffiti to produce lithium batteries.

In the first phase, the factory will assemble about a thousand buses with an autonomy of 300 kilometers per day. The first 100 buses will be imported and the rest assembled in Mozambique.

This is a private initiative presented recently at an event attended by the Minister of Transport and Communications, Mateus Magala, and other government officials, as well as the private operator, mentor of the project.

The Ministry of Transport and Communications has been implementing several initiatives to solve the problem of passenger transport with emphasis on the purchase of articulated buses, introduction of passenger trains.

The Ministry of Economy and Finance, through the Mozambique Tax Authority, will play an important role in the customs clearance of the equipment for the factory unit, as well as the kits for the bus assembly line.
