The cost of luxury can, at times, sacrifice the sustainability of our future. It’s the sad truth that style has amassed the conscious decisions of individuals, to live and support a more eco- friendly lifestyle. 

The Emirates Electric Vehicle Road event is the first of its kind in the Middle East, bringing to the UAE, the experience of driving electrical cars all over the country.
