The cars were received by SOCAR Vice-President on ecology issues, Rafiga Huseynzada at a ceremony held at the SOCAR EcoPark in Baku’s Gala settlement.
The cars are designed to transform energy produced from combustion of gasoline into electric energy, which is used for operating the cars. The cars were purchased in the frame of the GEF-financed project jointly implemented by UNDP and SOCAR.
SOCAR vice-president noted that the project was part of SOCAR’s ambitious plans to become a “zero-emission company”. Ms. Huseynzada mentioned that such strategy would boost Azerbaijan's economy and development, and would ensure a cleaner environment.
