Jordan may soon join the list of countries that heavily promote electric cars.

Located between Israel and Saudi Arabia, Jordan isn’t generally thought of in connection with electric cars, but its government hopes to change that with a combination of incentives and infrastructure buildup.

The country will waive import tariffs in electric cars–which would normally double their price–and spend $120 million to install a network of solar-powered charging stations, according to a recent Navigant Research blog post.
