The NAMA aims to produce and use private passenger electric vehicles in South Africa, with the goal of a 10% penetration of electric private passenger vehicles by 2015. The objective is to decrease GHG emissions by 450 MtCO2 equivalent from 2011 to 2050. The NAMA will help to demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of electric vehicles, with the potential of making a considerable contribution to the sustainability of the sector, and complementing other national climate change and transport initiatives.
