Balkan Nation Going Green on Its Own
BB Classic Cars in Skopje, North Macedonia is promoting green technology by restoring classic cars and converting them to electric. The converted cars are being fitted with electric motors from Germany's Kessler.
This is the first major attempt in the Balkan nation to produce its own electric cars. BB Classic is getting some support from the government's Innovation Fund. North Macedonia wants to join the European Union where tougher emissions standards are due in 2020.
among the many classic cars it's working on, BB Classic Cars have converted the supermini Zastava 750, which is an upgraded Fiat once popular in Yugoslavia, into an electric car. It's a zero emissions statement by North Macedonia about contributing to a greener, cleaner planet.
