Abu Dhabi, UAE: The Middle East & Africa region is determined to not be left behind in the global electric mobility race, with the UAE on a drive to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2050 and make 30% of the government fleet electric by 2030. The UAE is on track and well-ahead in the green mobility transition. Al-Futtaim Automotive is the first automotive company to embrace this ambition by launching a dedicated electric-focused mobility company – Al-Futtaim Electric Mobility Company.

At Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit, Al-Futtaim Electric Mobility Company is demonstrating the latest electric innovations and its commitment to shaping a new EV ecosystem within the country.

In line with its customer-first approach, the Al-Futtaim Electric Mobility Company is focused on delivering a full end-to-end solution for EV owners, from advanced vehicles to charging infrastructure to teams of accredited aftersales technicians.

Within the Al-Futtaim Electric Mobility Company, we have a portfolio of world-class brands, innovations, and end-to-end solutions to meet these demands, alongside the unparalleled service standards that customers have become accustomed to with Al-Futtaim. Currently our portfolio includes the Swedish luxury performance EV range - Polestar, our own charging station - Charge2Moov, and recently we also announced the launch of the world’s leading new energy vehicle brand – BYD - in the UAE. The customer response has been incredible from the market launches, which is a clear endorsement of our strategic partnerships.
