Kuwait authorities have announced plans to build EV City, which is billed as the region’s first city that exclusively cater to the needs of electric vehicle manufacturers. According to a report by Reuters which cited the Kuwait Ports Authority (KPA) general manager Yousef Al Abdullah Al Sabah, the design and construction tendering process for the proposed EV City will begin during the 2021/22 fiscal year.
The announcement is said to follow the sourcing of approval for the project from the KPA. The KPA will provide all port and logistics services to electric car companies, the report said. Sabah noted, “Electric car makers do not use local distributors or dealers and sell their vehicles directly to consumers.” He added that it was common for ports to provide certain infrastructure to manufacturers.
