Uber Egypt to Trial Al Nasr’s Locally-Produced ‘E70’ Electric Vehicles

The agreement comes ahead of Al Nasr's ambitious plans to roll out 25,000 E70 models annually by 2022.

Uber Egypt’s General Manager, Ahmed Khalil, has announced that the ride-hailing company will be trialling Al-Nasr Automobiles’ locally-manufactured electric vehicle, the ‘E70’, for a three-month period.

The ‘E70’ vehicle was made as part of a deal between the Ministry of Public Enterprise Sector and Chinese automotive company, Dongfeng. The two entities signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in 2020 to jointly-manufacture the models in Egypt under the company’s supervision.

As of 2022, Al-Nasr is expected to be rolling out 25,000 cars annually, climbing to 53,000 by 2025.
