Tobgay’s government – in office for three months – has held talks with Nissan on the supply of electric cars and battery charging systems.

Taxi cabs could be next on the list as the country’s 120,000 people depend heavily on them to commute. On an average, a Bhutanese taxi driver spends 800 ngultrum (800 rupees) a day on fuel. If operated on electricity, running the taxi would cost him just 10 ngultrum (10 rupees), a Bhutanese official reports.
