Admiral Mobility, a company providing accessible e-mobility and energy management solutions, has announced to bring 5000 electric commercial vehicles to the Middle East.

The order stems from a strategic partnership between Admiral Mobility and Geely Farizon Commercial Group.

It includes 3000 electric commercial trucks, divided into 6T and 8T models, and 2000 electric Farizon SuperVans.

With a range of up to 400km, the zero emissions electric Farizon SuperVan operates safely, taking less than two hours to fully charge via its LFP battery. Advanced safety features include lane-keeping assist adapt cruise control, remote locking systems and high beam LED lights equipped with auto adaption to the surrounding traffic.

Meanwhile, the initial commitment in bringing 500 commercial vehicles to the UAE in 2023, will help build the ‘green transportation industry’, especially in the lead up to climate change conference, COP28 next year, a statement said.

The company will provide multiple ways to support public and private sector businesses, through assisting with charging network requirements, managing after-sales services, as well as offering attractive leasing model arrangements.

Frank Bernthaler, chief operating officer, Admiral Mobility, said: “As we transition towards more environmentally-friendly energy and transportation solutions, we are proud to play a key role in building an infrastructure that empowers the government’s electrification strategy, and we are looking forward to supporting businesses as they move towards electric vehicles in the region.”

Mingshi Lin, vice president, Geely Farizon New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group, said: “The development and promotion of new energy commercial vehicles is of great importance and urgency for creating a global 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.

The UAE, which aims to become carbon neutral by 2050, ranks eighth globally in terms of readiness for electric mobility, with major government initiatives planned to increase the number of electric vehicles on the roads as a substitute to ensure clean energy.

According to the Global Electric Mobility Readiness Index – Gemrix 2022, the country’s electric vehicle (EV) market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 30 per cent between 2022 and 2028.
