In the year 2020, almost 50 percentage of the taxis had shifted to electric or hybrid fuels. General Mathar Muhammad Al Tayar informed that almost 4683 taxis have been modified in this manner. 170 among these are limosines.

As a part of Dubai energy strategy 2030 and the UAE vision 2021, more number of green vehicles will run in Dubai.

Electric hybrid vehicles were also first experimented by RTA for this cause, which was a grand success following which more vehicles were converted to this manner.

Hydrogen powered vehicles are also in the plans of RTA to be implemented.
