Already familiar sights on rich-country roads, electric vehicles are now starting to appear in the developing world as well.
The local renewable energy pioneer has unveiled the first Tritium Veefil fast charger in the island nation’s capital, Colombo, and plans to install units in each of the country’s 22 districts.
“For Tritium, the introduction of the Veefil to this part of the world represents another major export win and we are delighted to be working in a country where such important initiatives are being put in place,” said Tritium Commercial Director Paul Sernia.
“Our focus is to encourage more and more people to change from traditional fossil-based fuel vehicles to eco-friendly, zero-emission electric vehicles,” said Sunrise Engineering CEO Daimith Maiarachchi. “The Veefil can add 50 km of driving range in 10 minutes, and supports both the CHAdeMO and CCS Combo charging standards, making it compliant with just about every EV available in Sri Lanka.”
