The region’s first e-vehicle city is expected to come up in Kuwait.

Kuwait is set to build the region’s first city that will exclusively cater to the needs of electric vehicle manufacturers – EV City, reported Reuters.

The move comes following the approval from Kuwait Ports Authority (KPA) for the project. It will provide all port and logistics services to these global electric car giants.

The design and construction tendering process for the proposed EV City will begin during the 2021/22 fiscal year, stated the report, citing KPA’s General Manager Yousef Al Abdullah Al Sabah.

“Electric car makers do not use local distributors or dealers and sell their vehicles directly to consumers,” said Al Sabah, adding that it was common for ports to provide certain infrastructure to manufacturers.
