Egypt builds on COP27 with electric bus deal

The deal follows Egypt hosting the COP27 climate change conference, during which Egypt also announced a plan to develop high-speed rail.
An electric bus designed and built locally by Roam, a Swedish-Kenyan technology company, is seen in Nairobi on Oct. 19, 2022 during a media presentation.

The Egyptian government recently signed an agreement to produce a fleet of electric buses in the country. 

Egypt’s Transport and Military Production ministries signed the roughly $28 million agreement with the international bus manufacturer MCV to make 100 electric buses locally in Egypt. The buses will ultimately run on the Ring Road that encircles Cairo and its suburbs, Egypt’s state Information Service said Saturday.
