EVIQ launches first public electric vehicle DC fast-charging site in Riyadh

by Madaline Dunn

EVIQ, the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Company, has announced the launch of its inaugural electric vehicle fast-charging site.

Located at ROSHN Front in Riyadh (previously Riyadh Front), the site provides two cutting-edge fast chargers, each with an output power of over 100 kW, which will offer free high-power charging to all EV users in Riyadh.

This has been highlighted as a key milestone for the new joint-venture company between the Public Investment Fund (PIF) and Saudi Electricity Company (SEC).

Commenting on this, Mohammad Bakr Gazzaz, CEO of EVIQ, said: “This is a landmark moment for EVIQ, and a significant first achievement in our plans to deploy 5,000 fast chargers across 1,000 strategic locations around the Kingdom by 2030. The opening of our first site at ROSHN Front means that the public has access to the most advanced electric vehicle charging technology. These fast chargers will revolutionize public EV charging, allowing EV drivers to top-up their vehicles in a short period of time”.

David Grover, CEO of ROSHN Group, added: “ROSHN Front is an iconic destination for Riyadh, with over 800,000 visitors each month, making it an ideal location to host EVIQ’s first public EV charging facility. The adjacent SEDRA, which will eventually add 30,000 modern homes to Riyadh’s housing stock, will also provide EV charging infrastructure throughout the capital’s first humanized, integrated community. We are delighted to be working with EVIQ as part of our strategies of implementing cutting-edge technologies and partnering with best-in-class collaborators.”
