Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Arabian Automobiles, the flagship company of the AW Rostamani Group, and the exclusive dealer for Nissan in Dubai, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates, has delivered 50 Nissan KICKS to Udrive, the leading car sharing provider in the Middle East that offers car rentals by the minute.
Contributing to the ‘Shared Mobility’ initiative, this encourages commuters to carpool or utilise alternative transportation methods with the aim to decrease the number of cars on the roads. Such an enterprise is also in line with the Dubai Green Mobility Initiative which hopes to encourage the use of sustainable transport and electric vehicles. The concept of shared mobility is on the rise and through its association with Udrive, Arabian Automobiles Nissan looks to improve upon the reach and visibility for KICKS, its technologically endowed crossover.
The KICKS embodies the concept of Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM), which redefines the way Nissan powers, drives and integrates its cars into society. NIM aims at making the ride more confident every day and transforms the crossover from a car into a responsive partner that is always on the lookout for drivers, passengers and pedestrians through its Around View Monitor and Moving Object Detection system.
Present at the handover ceremony were Hasib Khan, Founder and CEO of Udrive; Charl Timms, Fleet General Manager at Nissan Middle East; and Nicolas Oswald, General Manager at Arabian Automobiles Company.
