UAE drivers are plugging into the electric vehicle future.

Last month, the country announced plans for 50 per cent of cars to be EVs by 2050. And, as of May, the UAE had converted around 20 per cent of its government agency cars and is aiming for 42,000 on the roads by 2030.

Alongside the cars, charging stations have popped up across Dubai, with 620 in place by the end of last year.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority has said it aims to establish 1,000 public charging stations by 2025.
