With electric cars slowly eating up a slice of the automobile market that day won’t be far when we’ll get to see electric vehicles on Saudi roads. But before that can happen what we’ll need is electric vehicle charging stations so that car owners make the switch to electric.
In what is a landmark moment, Riyadh just got its first commercial Electric Vehicle charging station.
And, it’s by none other than SASCO which runs one of the biggest chains of petrol stations in the country.

The new charging station has been installed at the city’s airport road.
There are six other charging stations that are to be installed in the country by the end of the year by American giant Schindler Electric.
