The government has said it plans to place 400,000 electric motorcycles and 140,000 hybrid taxi cabs on the market as part of a plan backed by the oil ministry to help protect the environment, said the managing director of Iran Fuel Conservation Company (IFCC). The government said it plans to produce 400,000 electric motorcycles to help reduce air pollution. Referring to the government’s plan, Nosratollah Seifi said: “Due to incomplete combustion, some motorcycles pollute the air four times as much as cars.” He added that once electric bike production begins, the government will start removing gasoline-powered motorcycles from the streets of Tehran.
