eCharge to install 10,000 EV charging stations across Jordan

Germany’s eCharge said it has signed an agreement with Jordanian authorities to install 10,000 EV charging stations across the Kingdom.

The stations will be able to charge vehicles in less than 15 minutes, Amr Abdou, eCharge’s head of business development, told the official Petra news agency.

The stations will be located at various locations including hotels and malls, and payments will be made through a smartphone app that employs blockchain technology.

Abdou said Jordan, which exempts electric car owners from customs and value added tax, is second in the region after Dubai in terms of electric vehicle ownership.

With few available stations across long distances, this project will facilitate the process of charging electric cars and save countless drivers time and effort.
