Tue, Apr 23, 2024 7:22pmGrey Clock 2 min

Yango Drive, which serves as both an online rental service and a car listing aggregator, is accessible through a mobile application integrated with Yango’s existing app, SuperApp, enabling users to effortlessly select and rent a vehicle with just a few taps on their device. The platform aggregates meticulously selected car rental companies from Dubai, boasting an extensive catalogue of 3,500 car listings.

Initially, the platform offers a diverse range of cars, from luxury brands like Lamborghini to popular models from Toyota and Nissan, ensuring there are options for all preferences and budgets.

The service caters to various needs with vehicles grouped into categories such as Economy, Standard, Business, and Sports, and allows rentals from a single day up to a month or more.

Yango Drive also aims to maintain consistent service quality across all its partner providers and offers continuous support throughout the rental period.

The service, which began with a soft launch, currently targets delivery within Dubai and plans to expand to other Emirates like Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Yango sees Dubai as an optimal initial market due to its diverse population and robust car rental industry, positioning the city as a strategic starting point for the platform.

By leveraging the city’s unique position as a hub for tourists and a diverse resident population, especially during peak seasons, Yango Drive addresses the growing demand for accessible and convenient transportation solutions. It supports the shift towards shared mobility and eco-friendly options, aligning with the UAE’s Net Zero 2050 initiative.

UAE Initiates State-Owned EV Charging Initiative to Boost Electric Vehicle Acceptance

The United Arab Emirates is improving its electric vehicle infrastructure with a new government-owned EV charging network.

Wed, May 22, 2024 2 min

The UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) alongside Etihad Water and Electricity (Etihad WE) have collaborated to form UAEV, a new joint venture aimed at strengthening the electric vehicle (EV) charging framework throughout the UAE. This venture is the first EV charging network entirely owned by the government, aimed at broadening access to EV charging facilities across the country.

The project seeks to revolutionize the UAE’s transport sector by enabling broader adoption of EVs via a robust and widespread charging infrastructure. This initiative is expected to strengthen communities, generate employment, and promote eco-friendly transportation options.

Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, said: “UAEV embodies the power of partnership between government and industry, and aims to provide vital electric vehicle infrastructure to boost adoption of EVs, energize communities, and unleash the economic potential of the UAE.

“We hope that this partnership will further accelerate the transition to cleaner transportation and significantly reduce emissions from the transportation sector, thereby helping to bring our Net Zero 2050 Strategy within reach.”

Sharif Al Olama, who has been appointed Chairman of UAEV, said: “In 2023, we saw a rise in EV adoption in the UAE. By expanding our EV infrastructure, we ensure the country is equipped to support those who have already purchased an EV and make the prospect of switching to EV attractive.

“Together, MoEI and Etihad WE form a powerful force that can help future-proof the UAE and achieve the twin objectives of economic growth and climate action, which underpin UAEV.”

The UAEV is also a perfect platform for Etihad WE, the largest employer in the Northern Emirates and a company with a customer base of over 2 million households, to use its core competency and enhance its product offering.

Yousif Ahmed Al Ali, CEO of Etihad Water and Electricity and Board Member of UAEV, explained: “It is part of a deliberate strategy to diversify our operations, using the knowledge and experience acquired from our role as long-standing pioneers in the energy sector, to explore new products, services, projects, and investments which will benefit our customers.

“UAEV charging infrastructure will contribute to the modernization of the UAE’s transport network, help energize communities by creating new jobs, and empower our customers to make more sustainable choices.”
