Mai Dubai, the UAE’s leading bottled water company, has taken a pioneering step towards sustainability by becoming the region’s first beverage company to officially incorporate an Electric Vehicle (EV) truck into its delivery fleet. Admiral Mobility, in collaboration with Farizon Commercial Group, officially handed over the EV truck to Mai Dubai at a ceremony held at its factory.
This significant accomplishment is in line with Mai Dubai’s goal of lowering carbon emissions and the UAE’s commitment to sustainable development, especially as the country prepares to host the prestigious COP28 conference in November 2023. As part of its continued commitment to sustainability, Mai Dubai will support the conference by delivering drinking water in glass bottles using the recently launched electric truck.
Mai Dubai’s latest initiative also supports the transportation sector’s efforts in reducing global CO2 emissions, which is approximately 23 percent of man-made emissions. Furthermore, the recently launched Global EV Market project initiated by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure in UAE aims to support the objectives of the UAE Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative, promote circular economy, and reduce the carbon footprint of the mobility sector.
UAE-based Admiral Mobility, a subsidiary of the Admiral Global Group, officially joined forces with Farizon New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group in 2022, solidifying their commitment to bringing 5000 electric vehicles to the Middle East over the next three years. The fully electric 8T Cargo Truck and an Admiral Energy 47KW Charger with 20% extended battery life was provided with full driver training, servicing, maintenance, and insurance.
