Dubai adds electric vehicles to limo fleet of taxi

DUBAI: Dubai launched Sunday the operation of 50 Tesla electric vehicles to the limo fleet of the Dubai Taxi Corporation, the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said in an e-mailed statement.

RTA said the initiative also replicates the green economic drive launched by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum.

It aims at converting 25 percent of total journeys into driverless journeys by 2030,” said Mattar Al-Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA.

The limo service can be paid by passengers, but it is also included in the price of a business class ticket of Dubai’s government-controlled carrier Emirates Airline of which Sheikh Ahmed is the Chairman and CEO.

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports along with senior executives of Dubai Airports attended the launch ceremony which was held at the entrance of the Dubai International Airport, Terminal 3.

The Dubai Taxi Corporation has coordinated with the concerned parties to provide the needed infrastructure to ensure the operation of these vehicles including the provision of 13 electric recharging stations. – Samaa
