To support the UAE’s sustainability agenda and decarbonize the transportation industry, Admiral Mobility will unveil its first fully electric lorries in the UAE and Saudi Arabia in 2023. A Dubai-based distributor of commercial EVs manufactured by China’s Geely, Admiral Mobility announced it will bring 5000 commercial EVs to the Middle East.
The commitment comprises 3000 electric commercial trucks, split between 6T and 8T, and a further 2000 electric Farizon SuperVANs. An initial 500 electric lorries will be produced and sold in 2023, with a further 2,500 in the next two to three years.
The order is the outcome of a strategic relationship between Admiral Mobility and Geely Farizon Commercial Group sparked by the rising need for environmentally friendly transportation.
“With COP28 fast approaching and sustainability being high on everyone’s agendas, this partnership is an important step forward to build a robust EV truck portfolio in the region,” said Frank Bernthaler, chief operating officer at Admiral Mobility.
The zero-emission Farizon SuperVAN ranges up to 400 km and can be fully charged in less than two hours using its effective LFP battery.
“The development and promotion of new energy commercial vehicles are of great importance and urgency for creating a globally sustainable future. With Farizon’s advanced automotive technology enabled by our R&D capabilities, now aided by the extensive market reach and customer insights of Admiral Mobility, we are confident in bringing high-quality carbon-free commercial vehicles to the entire GCC region,” said Mingshi Lin, vice president, Geely Farizon New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group.
