Electric microbuses have been imported through Nepal's northern border checkpoint, Rasuwagadhi. A total of 22 microbuses were imported on Wednesday evening. Entrepreneurs from the private sector imported electric vehicles with a capacity of 12 seats focusing on the urban area. 

Information Officer of the Rasuwa Customs Office, Narendra Prasad Chaudhary shared that the vehicles are being imported from China and the microbus imported immediately after Dashain have been sent to the destination after completing the customs process. Around 100 electric cars were imported before Dashain while the import of microbus has increased now, informed the Customs Office Timure.

It was very tough to drive electric micro bus on the road to Kathmandu due to its small sized wheel, commented micro bus driver. As most of the road sections from Rasuwagadhi to Galchhi are bumpy and have a lot of potholes, it is difficult to drive the vehicle in such route.

It is noted that the import of electric vehicles would contribute to reduce pollution and increase environmental cleanliness as well as help gradually remove the operation of the fossil fuel-enabled vehicles.
