  • The Egyptian dream of producing the first local electric car did not go smoothly.
  • Tawfik announced in June 2021 “the start of a trial production with the first Egyptian electric car starting in July or August 2022,” noting that “this production will be experimental with 100 cars until production begins with an actual capacity of 25,000 electric cars per year”.
  • On Nov. 15, Tawfik confirmed that “the project to produce a local electric car was underway, as the ministry received proposals for the names of five electric cars in preparation for selecting one of them to be manufactured by Al Nasr Automotive Manufacturing Company”.
