Renault: Electric vehicles are at the core of Arab cities' futures
Peyman Kargar, Renault VP for the Africa Middle East India Region spoke about future in the region
Electric vehicles that do not emit any CO2, NOx, fine particles, odours or engine noise were discussed during the Arab Future Cities Summit in Dubai last week.
The event's sustainable car partner, French car-maker Renault currently leads the European market for electric vehicles with 30% market share.
Speaking at the event, Peyman Kargar, Renault VP for the Africa Middle East India Region said: "As the European leader, Renault intends to remain at the forefront of electric vehicle solutions in the Middle East Region. In fact, Renault was the first automotive company to launch a 100% electric car in the UAE and to give everyone the opportunity to test-drive the latest technology. Now Twizy is familiar with the country's landscape and has won over some of the country's A-list individuals!" said Kargar "Electric vehicles are definitely at the core of Arab cities' futures".
Renault has launched a range of four complementary, full-electric vehicles, sold at prices near those of equivalent internal combustion vehicles in countries with tax incentives.
