These three Dubai ho­tels charge your Tesla for free

Friday - - Travel News -

If you own a Tesla car, you can now charge it for free at three Dubai ho­tels – Anan­tara The Palm Dubai Re­sort, Dukes Dubai on Palm Jumeirah and the Möven­pick Ho­tel Ibn Bat­tuta Gate.

The ho­tels, which are owned by Seven Tides group, have had Tesla’s Des­ti­na­tion Charg­ing con­nec­tors in­stalled at each of their en­trances so Tesla-driv­ing denizens can sim­ply drive in and juice up their eco-friendly elec­tric rides for a wal­let­friendly rate of noth­ing. The ini­tia­tive, says Ab­dulla Bin Su­layem, CEO of Seven Tides, is to ‘…re­duce our car­bon foot­print and help oth­ers to do the same. So to pro­mote a more en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly life­style and tran­si­tion to al­ter­nate trans­port so­lu­tions, we are happy to of­fer these charg­ing sta­tions across our prop­er­ties for free.’

The charg­ers are a step to­wards help­ing Dubai go green and reach the Dubai Clean En­ergy Strat­egy 2050, which aims to make the city a more sus­tain­able econ­omy by pro­vid­ing 7 per cent of to­tal en­ergy out­put from clean re­sources by 2020 and 75 per cent by 2050. There are sev­eral Des­ti­na­tion Charg­ers in the UAE – 18 in Dubai, six in Abu Dhabi and one in Ras Al Khaimah.
