Just a month ago, Elon Musk visited and met with Dubai’s ruler HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, during Tesla’s launch in the UAE. One of its first customers in the country was Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), who agreed to procure 200 vehicles to expand its conquest to go green and to lead its people by example.
HH Sheikh Hamdan driving the electric car is definitely influential and could contribute to positive outcomes
The Crown Prince’s driving of the car and informing of its people via social media is a great way of pushing for the greater good. We love it. Especially at a time when the cost of fuels keep increasing, to influence one person will influence another and this will help reduce the consumption of fossil fuels in the country.
‘Green is the new black’
