Egypt Trials 1St Fleet Of Electric Taxis In New Administrative Capital


(MENAFN- Nam News Network) CAIRO, May 16 (NNN-MENA) – Egypt kicked off a pilot programme yesterday, for operating the country's first fleet of electric taxis, in its newly-built New Administrative Capital (NAC), aiming to provide eco-friendly and smart transportation
options.

The initial phase sees 10 electric vehicles
deployed within the NAC, currently home to most government
ministries and institutions.

The fleet, owned by Egypt's Ministry
of Transportation, will consist of 85 China-made MG4s and 60 Chevrolet Bolt cars. It will be operated by a local Egyptian company.

“These initial 10 electric cars mark the first stage,” said George Michael, CEO of Caesar Clean Energy Transportation Solution, the project operator, said, indicating a swift rollout for the remaining vehicles
and potential expansion beyond the NAC boundaries.

“The new electric cars are very safe...they are equipped with interior and exterior surveillance systems, and GPS
devices to ensure the safety of commuters during trips,” Michael said.

Beyond safety, the initiative aligns with Egypt's broader push for smart and sustainable transportation
solutions, he added.– NNN-MENA
