News Details

Mowasalat (Karwa) has announced that all Karwa city taxis will be replaced by an entire hybrid electric eco-taxi fleet.

The eco-taxis use a self-charging hybrid electric system that runs on a mix of a highly efficient, low-emission gasoline and electric motor. When starting up, stopping or moving at slow speed, the vehicle is run entirely on electric power. Decelerating or breaking turns kinetic energy from the wheels into electricity, to be stored in the car battery. By using the eco-taxi fleet, the company estimates that each vehicle will save around 12,000kg of carbon dioxide in comparison to a taxi powered by a conventional fuel drive system.

Karwa has set out to green mobility for less emissions and cleaner air. This eco-friendly fleet will further reduce our carbon footprint on the streets of Doha, and it is yet another stepping stone on the way to our zero-emission goal. We will further place our emphasis on innovative technologies, and an extension of our taxi fleet with fully electric vehicles is already in the pipeline. We see this as one of our key contributions to Qatar National Vision 2030, said Fahad Saad Al Qahtani, CEO of Mowasalat (Karwa).
