Medco inaugurated an electric car charging station in Gemmayzeh on Wednesday. Other charging terminals are set up in Chiyah, Dora, and UNESCO. These devices charge all types of e-vehicles in under 20 minutes.
Medco introduced the first electric vehicle charger in Lebanon in December 2017. DBT, which is the European leader in fast charging terminals, installed the two 50 kW tri-standard chargers in Medco BCD service station in Downtown Beirut. The installment of these chargers is essential to transition to e-mobility. The Lebanese legislation did not previously encourage the transition to electric cars. Thanks to the 2018 state budget, Article 55 reduced taxes on electric and hybrid vehicles in Lebanon which mean that they are more affordable.
