This briefing gives an overview of the status of ZEV development in the Eurasian region. 

EV adoption is still at a very early stage for most countries in Eurasia, although several countries are scaling up EV sales of passenger vehicles. Ukraine and Jordan have higher EV market shares for passenger cars than other emerging economies, at 1.5% and 1.1%, respectively, as of 2020. Early signs of EV uptake are apparent in Lebanon, Nepal, Turkey, Serbia, and Belarus, with market shares between 0.1% and 0.3%.

A few countries in the region have electric bus stock. Kazakhstan has a total of 230 electric buses as of 2020, a minor portion of their total bus stock. Nepal, Serbia, Egypt, Turkey, Ukraine, and Belarus have fleets of 5 to 61 electric buses.
