Electric car imports suspended

The import of electric cars to showrooms and the automobile expo will come to a halt starting in early May because there is virtually no demand for the electric cars, said a businessman who is engaged in the car industry.

The unpopularity of electric cars stems from their costly repair when they break down. Also, these cars are difficult to resell on the used car market. Therefore, the import of electric cars will be suspended, said Ko Tun Tun Naing from Tun automobile showroom in Mingala Taung Nyunt Township.

These electric cars are manufactured by Japanese automobile companies, including Nissan, with the aim of reducing pollution.
Japanese-made cars worth Ks10 to 15million are imported to Yangon car showrooms and sales centers. Nissan-made Leaf electric cars were imported because of their popularity across the world.
