Lucid Group represented by Lucid in Saudi Arabia and Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Company (EVIQ) have announced an MoU to activate high-speed public charging systems to support the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the kingdom.
The MoU signifies a strategic alignment between Lucid and EVIQ to foster cooperation and the exchange of expertise in the development and enhancement of the kingdom’s EV infrastructure, contributing to the growing adoption of EVs in Saudi Arabia and bolstering the kingdom’s position as a leading hub for innovation and development in EV technology.

Under the MoU, Lucid and EVIQ will collaborate to develop a high-speed public charging offering for Lucid customers, utilising EVIQ’s stations to provide fast-charging capabilities.
Key challenge
“The collaboration between Lucid and EVIQ represents a significant step forward in addressing one of the key challenges hindering the mass adoption of electric vehicles – access to convenient and reliable charging infrastructure,” said Faisal Sultan, Vice President and Managing Director Middle East at Lucid. 
By combining Lucid's expertise in electric vehicle design, manufacturing, and sustainable mobility with EVIQ's extensive experience in developing and operating public charging networks, including fast-charging stations, the collaboration will serve to drive innovation and accelerate EV ownership in Saudi Arabia.
“Our mission is to provide the best-in-class EV chargers & technologies to empower drivers in Saudi to buy and use EVs with confidence,” said Mohammad Bakr Gazzaz, CEO at EVIQ. “Through this partnership with Lucid, we have taken another big step towards our goal of establishing a national network of fast charging locations by 2030, to enable and encourage the use of EVs across Saudi Arabia, in line with the Saudi Green Initiative and Vision 2030.”--TradeArabia News Service
