Emirati businesswoman counts down for 1st ‘Made in UAE’ electric car

The countdown for the first ‘Made in UAE’ electric car has begun. And Dr Majida Alazazi, chairwoman of M Glory Holding Group, is super excited for the big day.

The electric car is called Al Damani DMV300, and the first batch of cars is expected to roll out by the end of June. It can touch a top speed of 160kms and cover more than 405kms on a single charge.

In March, Dr Majida along with other top officials laid the foundation stone for the country’s first-ever electric vehicle manufacturing facility in DIC. The factory will be finished by 2024. Meanwhile, DMV300 will be made at a temporary factory. Thousands of orders have already been received. The capacity per day is 8 to 10 cars and 10,000 cars a year from the temporary factory. The main factory will be capable of producing 50,000 to 70,000 cars per year.

Dr Majida is the first Emirati woman with a practical doctorate in business administration in supply chain management and manufacturing from UAE University. Following her passion to be a pioneer in the industrial sector, she opened an automotive factory: Sandstorm Motor Vehicles Manufacturing.
