Installation follows nine dedicated Tesla spots at Dubai’s Mall of Emirates
In an effort to promote green transportation in Dubai, Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) has announced that it will add four electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to its City Centre Me’aisem shopping mall this year. The facility will be free to use for mall visitors and will be secured, so that only visitors with EVs will be able to park in the dedicated spots.
According to a statement, the initiative is part of MAF’ssustainability strategy, which is designed to bring ‘innovations and convenient green solutions to its destinations to encourage the community to reduce its carbon footprint’.
“As Dubai forges ahead to create a smart, happy and eco-friendly city, we want to do our part by making it more convenient for residents who adopt a sustainable lifestyle and provide them with a memorable experience whenever they visit us. While they shop at their favourite stores, dine and take advantage of our leisure offerings, their cars can be docked at the designated spots to be fully powered up,” said Maryam Ahli, mall manager at City Centre Me’aisem.
MAF said that instructions on how to use the charging facilities are displayed at the stations. The mall operator also said that customers who require further assistance can contact onsite traffic marshals.
