Its economy is growing at an average 6% percent per year. The country has now become the second largest economy among the SARC and exports reached 50 billion dollars. Although the automobile industry of Bangladesh is more developed than before, so far it has not achieved the expected success. Along with the growing GDP of Bangladesh, people’s buying power is increasing gradually. Similarly, people’s lifestyles are changing as well. So, the usage of Electric Vehicles will rise for sure.
