Sri Lanka Vehicle Importers’ Association Chairman Indika Sampath Merinchige said that together with a local company they are prepared to manufacture a speedy recharging unit capable of recharging an electric motorcar within minutes.
A Sri Lankan company Vega has come forwards to undertake this production, Merinchige added.
“Installing a speedy electric motor vehicle recharging unit is costly. Vega has joined us to produce these recharging units at a lower cost than the imported units, Merinchige added further.
Wasana Trading Company has already installed some 100 normal recharging units island-wide of which six units are planned to be set up at the Welipenne resting area along the Southern Expressway.
Currently electric motorcars are becoming popular in Sri Lanka.
