Buying an electric car in Dubai has suddenly become a lot more interesting.

For those in the market for a new car in Dubai, they may very well choose an electric vehicle over a traditional combustible petrol or diesel engine.

RTA (Road and Transport Authority) and DEWA (Dubai Electrical & Water Authority) have teamed up to offer electric car owners a free toll tag or  ‘Salik’ as it is called there free parking and free recharging until the end of 2019. Vehicle registration and renewal fees will also be waived.

Owners of electric vehicles in the Kingdom will get a special sticker that will help officials recognize them and allow them to avail of free parking and charging.

RTA is expected to provide the free parking facility at over 40 locations by the end of the year. The number of stations where your car can be charged for free is also expected to rise to 100 by the end of 2019.

Dubai is aiming for electric vehicles to make up 2% of all vehicles on the road by 2020 and 10% by 2030.
