Nepal is gradually upscaling the power generation and with this increase, efficient energy consumption is significant to contribute to the overall economic growth. Electric mobility in this backdrop can be an ideal sector to increase domestic energy consumption and step in toward environmental sustainability.

The NADA EV Expo 2022 will host the participation of seven 4-wheeler brands, one 3-wheeler brand, sixteen 2-wheeler brands, three brands of tyres, two brands of battery, nine companies of garage equipment, components and an auto magazine along with four financial institutions.
Adjoining the festive season, the NADA EV Expo 2022 is expected to be an overwhelming participative business platform for EV customers, auto enthusiasts, auto dealers and other auto stakeholders at large. The organizer strongly believes that the EV Expo will reach out to an extended mass to enhance public consciousness in regard to an electric vehicle, their usage and their benefits.
