ELECTRICAL VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS
EV CHARGING STATIONS
Background of EV charge stations
The Zimbabwean Electric Vehicle (EV) market represents an untapped business opportunity. Electric vehicles are set to increase their presence in Zimbabwe as more people are seeing the benefit of EVs This therefore represents a unique investment opportunity for Ugesi. EV’s have significant benefits which can transform the transport industry in developing countries as well as improve the Balance of Payments from a fuel importing perspective.

Focused on three broad segments:
BENEFITS OF ELECTRICAL VEHICLES
An EV directly converts electricity into movement. This makes it far more efficient than a conventional car, which has to burn fuel (creating heat) and then convert that heat into motion.
Reduced carbon emissions
Low maintenance costs – (fewer moving parts, no fuel or oil filters, no oil change) . EV’s are much cheaper to run when compared to using fossil fuels
Electric motors are much simpler than internal combustion engines. Therefore, EVs can provide full torque (the force that drives the vehicle forward) from 0 kilometers, resulting in instant acceleration
Zero noise pollution,
They are safer because the lower centre of gravity means they are unlikely to roll over, and the absence of fossil fuels greatly reduces fire hazards
