Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Company (EVIQ) has established an electric vehicle (EV) charging partnership with Tawal, the largest ICT infrastructure company in Saudi Arabia.

Mohammad Bakr Gazzaz, CEO of EVIQ, and Mohammed Alhakbani, CEO of Tawal, signed the partnership at Leap 2024 in Riyadh.

This strategic alliance marks a significant leap forward for EVIQ’s commitment to revolutionising the EV charging landscape across Saudi Arabia.

This tactical move reinforces EVIQ’s position in the Saudi market and aligns perfectly with the company’s regional goals. It will pave the way for a radical change in the infrastructure supporting EVs.

Uninterrupted connectivity

Through its expanding ecosystem of EV charging points in Saudi Arabia, Tawal will provide uninterrupted connectivity to all EVIQ chargers across the Gulf country, enabling live status updates and ensuring a superior experience for EV drivers.

Based out of Riyadh, EVIQ aims to leverage Tawal’s experience in ICT infrastructure to build a network of EV chargers, ushering in a new era of affordable and sustainable electric mobility in Saudi Arabia.

EVIQ aims to deploy more than 5,000 fast EV chargers by 2030 throughout Saudi cities and connecting roads.

Alhakbani said: “We are thrilled to embark on this innovative journey with EVIQ, aligning our strengths to contribute to the evolution of electric mobility in Saudi Arabia. Tawal’s commitment to advanced ICT solutions finds a powerful synergy with EVIQ’s vision, and together, we are set to redefine the landscape of sustainable transportation infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.”

Gazzaz added: “At EVIQ, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what is possible and shaping a sustainable future. Our partnership with Tawal represents a step towards transforming the electric mobility landscape in Saudi Arabia.
