But the long term strategy remains and shall see the French group set up 2,000 EV charging stations for 1,000 of its EV within four years.
Tesla landed in the UAE as planned and started to install Superchargers right away. One fast-charging station connects Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Destination chargers can be found in Dubai already.
