Tesla Is Helping Build An Autonomous Transportation Network In Dubai
The agreement is part of Dubai’s commitment to transform 25% of Dubai’s total transportation to self-driving mode by 2030
Dubai now has 50 vehicles with self-driving capabilities thanks to Tesla. Seven months after Tesla and the government of Dubai and the U.A.E. inked a deal, Tesla has already delivered one-fourth of the total supply upon which they agreed.
Back in February, the agreement stated that Tesla would supply 200 Model S/X vehicles to Dubai and the U.A.E. This agreement is part of Dubai’s strategy to transform 25% of Dubai’s total transportation to self-driving vehicles by 2030. Officials in Dubai believe that the Tesla Autopilot feature will help with driver confidence as well as increase safety on the road. Furthermore, it will help reduce a driver’s workload for the day.
The first 50 Tesla vehicles will be stationed at Dubai airport. An additional 75 vehicles are expected to arrive in 2018, followed by the other 75 in 2019. The Dubai Taxi Corporation is also helping out in providing the 13 recharging stations needed for the proper operation of the vehicles.
