  • Dubai taxi fleet is currently 50 percent electric or hybrid

RIYADH: Dubai Roads Authority (RTA) has succeeded in converting 50 percent of its Dubai Taxi fleet to be fully electric or hybrid, and aims to reach 100 percent by 2027, Asharq reported citing the Authority’s CEO of Strategy and Corporate Governance Sector Nasser BuShehab

Incentives adopted by the authority to support the spread of electric cars include
exemption from parking and road fees (SALIC), as well as free annual licensing fees for hybrid and electric vehicles.

Dubai is working in accordance with a plan that the UAE committed to under the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce carbon emissions, BuShehab told Asharq Channel.
