In recent years, air pollution has become the cause of concern in numerous urban centers across Nepal, especially Kathmandu. Increasing imports of oil due to an increasing number of fossil fuel vehicles are causing environmental degradation, creating public health risk, and undermining the energy security of the country. After the recent blockade, Nepal has come to realize the need to transform its dependency from fossil fuel to alternative energy source. The abundance of hydroelectricity means electric vehicles are the obvious choice for Nepal. With plenty of hydropower to be added to NEA’s grid the future of Electric Vehicle is on the bright side. To capitalize on this Cimex Inc. has secured the title of authorized distributor for BYD electric vehicle in Nepal.
BYD is the global leader in electric vehicles. It is also the only vehicle company that specializes in battery, motor and electronic control.

Charging infrastructure will play a pivotal role on EV deployment, and, in the absence of a proactive plan and schedule, it will be a major impediment. Infrastructure limitations are particularly pertinent to BEVs due to their sole dependency on electricity. The charging infrastructure includes all of the hardware and software that ensures energy is transferred from the electric grid to the vehicle.
