Classification and registration of vehicles are important requirements for transport data collection. Clarity of information on the types of vehicles registered in the country is relevant for transport planning, intelligent transportation systems and in facilitating policy formulation, e.g. to foster uptake of one vehicle type and reduce use of another.
In this report, we examined the process of classifying and registering electric vehicles in Kenya.
The report is one out of three reports (see here and here) on electric mobility by Strathmore University and Knights Energy. The study was coordinated by the Advancing Transport Climate Strategies in Rapidly Motorising Countries project (TraCS), a project implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and funded through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
