M. Salman Hamid Interview
In the interview with M Salman Hamid, former System Analyst in United Motors Company (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) KSA. He is currently Development of Director at GMP Drivercare in the United Kingdom.
He said electric vehicles are already famous in the United Kingdom when it comes in the economy, comfort, and autonomous driving. In my previous driving experience with electric cars. Meanwhile, I traveled around 350 miles and charged for only £6.47. Approx, SAR 29.44.
However, the travel was almost the same as Riyadh to Dammam round trip. You can imagine it is a good replacement for fuel. However, Saudi Arabia will be having a taste of it soon which will reduce the queues at fuel stations.
These vehicles can be charged at home during the night & usually in many countries the electricity is charged less at night. The infrastructure is still not enough in the KSA to meet the demand but it will be surely hitting the roads soon.
