In Tunisia, the French oil company TotalEnergies announces the upcoming installation of a recharging network for electric vehicles in the capital Tunis. The initiative is part of the group’s energy transition strategy to develop new energies and support new forms of mobility.
On the occasion of the “Golden Wheels of TotalEnergies”, an annual gathering of experts from the automotive world in Tunisia, the British MG ZS, German Porsche Taycan, Korean Hyundai Kona, were honored. These electric models were welcomed in TotalEnergies service stations equipped with charging stations.
This is new equipment that reflects the willingness of TotalEnergies, to establish the first network of charging for electric vehicles in Tunisia. The Tunisian subsidiary of the French oil group will provide its customers with charging stations every 200 km. The project will be carried out with the assistance of TotalEnergies’ partners in the electric mobility sector in Tunisia, such as the automotive groups Ennakl, MG Motors and Tesla Club.
In this North African country, TotalEnergies’ electric vehicle recharging network currently comprises 26 recharging points served by 19 electric terminals in 17 TotalEnergies service stations spread across the country. The Tunisian government now wants to promote electric mobility, four years after the first electric bus supplied by the Chinese manufacturer BYD was put into circulation in the capital Tunis. The bus, which has a range of 250 kilometers for 90 passengers, has a recharging system that lasts three hours and is installed in parks.
