Yutong signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mowasalat (Karwa), a Qatari leading transportation company, for joint research and development of electric vehicles (EV) for logistics.
The MoU outlines several areas of cooperation between the two companies, including jointly promoting the application and development of electric commercial vehicles in Qatar, joint R&D of electrification projects, and joint research on safe driving and operation efficiency for EV. The MoU was signed by Fahad Saad Al Qahtani, CEO of Mowasalat, and Shen Hui, CEO of Yutong Middle East. This MoU represents another step of Karwa's effort to actively push towards a cleaner environment.
Fahad Saad Al Qahtani, CEO of Mowasalat, commented on the MoU, saying, “We are the key player for transportation in Qatar and as such, we are aware of our ecological responsibility for the country. This cooperation will help us achieve our goal of promoting the use of clean energy and reducing carbon emissions. We look forward to working closely with Yutong on the joint research and development of EVs for logistics, as well as other initiatives related to new energy.”
“At Yutong, we are committed to creating a sustainable future for all, and we will further advance the development of electric commercial vehicles in Qatar. This collaboration represents a significant milestone for Yutong, and we look forward to working together to contribute to a greener and cleaner environment for Qatar,” said Shen Hui, CEO of Yutong Middle East.
During the last few years, Mowasalat has been committed to reducing carbon emissions and promoting clean energy in Qatar. And for the Qatari world’s football tournament in 2022, the company introduced Yutong battery electric buses to provide shuttle services to the football fans from all over the world. These e-buses have won popular acclaim due to their quality and durability.
