Dubai has seen an increase in registered electric vehicles in the emirate, thanks to perks like free parking and charging facilities.

This brings the total number of registered green vehicles in Dubai to 8,489, with 3,210 customers benefitting from the EV Green Charger initiative as of March.

Launched by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), the EV Green Charger provides a network of charging pods across Dubai.
