Estimate the Market Size for Electic and Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles In Africa

The goal of this repository is to use open data repositories to answer the following questions: What is the estimated market size of electric and hybrid vehicles in Africa? What is the cost effectiveness of investing in electric vehicles as a public good to clean-up the air of all major African cities? What are environmental externalities generated by the extraction of natural resources such as Cobalt and Lithium to supply the appetite for batteries for electric vehicles?
