The NADDC making big commitments to the future of EV in Nigeria

The National Automotive Design & Development Council (NADDC) has voiced again how they want to commit to the local production of environmentally-friendly Electric Vehicles (EVs) for it to become the new normal for every Nigerian to drive electric.

At the just concluded Nigerian Energy Summit II, the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Power, and the European Union, the Director-General of the NADDC, Jelani Aliyu, MFR, announced his agency’s plan to help raise the capacity of Electric Vehicle production in the country.

This is all in an effort to help meet the Paris Accord and the 2060 net-zero commitment, by reducing harmful gas emissions from vehicles. This would make an ease of access to EVs in Nigeria.

The Council is currently writing an Electric Vehicle Policy, promoting benefits for buyers and producers of EVs.


He also showed how his agency has been developing 100 per cent solar-powered EV charging stations, sited at three universities across the country. These are Usmanu Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, University of Lagos and University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in a strategic move that is aimed at bringing advanced automotive-related technology to the doorsteps of students as an effective technology transfer initiative.

Jet Systems Motors have created the first Indigenously made and assembled Nigerian Electric Vehicle, the Jet Mover Electric Delivery Van, this was showcased on Aliyu’s video part of their presentation along with the Hyundai Kona EV.
