About the road trip

We completed the longest electric vehicle road trip in the Middle East, covering 2,000km across the UAE and Oman for 9 days with 8 electric vehicles, with over 60 participants driving across beautiful landscapes and engaging local communities along the way! Thank you to everyone who joined and supported us on the road and from afar, together we’ve made motoring history in the Middle East, and had great impact towards our electric future!

On the road trip we opened 18 new charging points, including some of the first ones in Oman, expanding the cruicial charging network across the Middle East with our partners GreenParking and IHG.

Alongside these charging station opening ceremonies we held events along the way including The Mobility Conference at the World Future Energy Summit, The Future of Mobility Roundtable Muscat (the first event on EVs in Oman), the e-Mobility Showcasing Day Dubai at The Sustainable City, as well as plenty of site visits and test driving experiences for the communities we visited.

 

What is an EVRT?

Our Electric Vehicle Road Trip – EVRT – an epic journey into future mobility! We put you behind the wheel of the latest EV technology for the ultimate clean-tech adventure. Gain a deep understanding of electric vehicles as we explore beautiful landscapes, visit sights of sustainability interest and make time for fun and relaxation along the way!

Along the road we showcase our vehicles in new cities, deliver insightful EV industry events and build charging station infrastructure; ensuring impact has been made to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles.

It’s almost impossible to pick a highlight from my 10 days on the ESCP Europe EVRT. The breathtaking scenery, the fascinating visits to companies leading the way in the EV industry, the cars themselves, and the diverse group of fellow road trippers – all of these things made it an experience to remember!

It was great to meet some likeminded people that truly have the passion for green transport in the UAE and to be part of that movement was very fulfilling. The trip was very well organised with some great speakers and some influential sponsors. Hopefully it will be the start of a great EV movement in the UAE.

The highlight was driving a Tesla of course, not necessarily because it is a stunning car, but how it operates and the sensation of driving is completely different. It gives you a sense of fear and excitement all at once, due to the new technology but also how the car adapts to you as well as you adapt to the car. Also, the Trip was an adventure in itself, you have the change to experience different seasons, roads and how it feels to have to stop to recharge a car, you experience a sense of community very quickly, I loved that.
