RIYADH — Lucid Group alongside Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Company (EVIQ), announced on Wednesday a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at revolutionizing the electric vehicle (EV) charging landscape in Saudi Arabia.

This collaboration is set to develop high-speed public charging stations across the Kingdom, facilitating easier access to charging solutions and supporting the wider adoption of EVs.

Mohammad Bakr Gazzaz, CEO at EVIQ, emphasized the strategic importance of the partnership: “Our mission is to empower Saudi drivers with superior EV chargers & technologies. Partnering with Lucid allows us to expand our fast charging network, critical to achieving the national goal of a widespread charging infrastructure by 2030 as envisioned in the Saudi Green Initiative.”
