AW Rostamani Shift Car Rental has announced that it will add electric vehicles to its fleet.
A “first” in the region, the company will lead its new initiative with the Renault Zoe, which offers a 300 km drive on a single charge.
As a result of the recent Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the UAE’s vision for a green economy, the move sees AW Rostamani driving change in dealing with greenhouse gas emissions, which currently total 403.3 parts per million, the highest it has ever been.

We believe that it should be the duty of all responsible organisations and individuals to play their part in fighting climate change. As the first in the region, we hope this initiative involving the Renault Zoe electric cars will be welcomed by all key stakeholders including government and semi-government entities.
“Following a number of key strategies set in motion by the government, AW Rostamani Shift Car Rental aims to be at the forefront of change and hopes to disrupt the industry in order to gradually reduce the relentless hurting of the very world we call home.”
