Tesla Model 3 Joins Dubai's Taxi Fleet at Normal Taxi Rates

You can now ride in a Tesla taxi in Dubai at normal taxi rates as Arabia Taxi has signed an exclusive agreement to add 269 Model 3 Teslas to the city's taxi fleet in April 2023.

This move to add a number of Tesla electric vehicles comes with the goal of promoting the fleet of environmentally friendly taxis in Dubai.

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority has an ambitious strategy of converting taxis into a-100 percent environmentally friendly vehicles by 2027.

In July 2022, the RTA added Tesla Model 3 to the Dubai Taxi Corporation's fleet on a trial basis. 

Ahmed Bahrozyan, CEO of the Public Transport Agency at the RTA, said the step will contribute towards "promoting the Dubai government's initiative to introduce green vehicles for a cleaner environment."

Arabia Taxi is a subsidiary of the Economic Group, whose 83 percent of the cars in its Dubai fleet are currently operating with environment-friendly hybrid engine technology, said Sheikh Majid bin Hamad Al Qasimi, chairman of Economic Group.

"The company is working on a strategic plan to convert the remaining vehicles into fully electric cars ... It is looking forward to expanding its cooperation with Tesla and a number of electric car manufacturers, to offer its clients diversified sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation options," said Sheikh Majid.
