In a bid to learn more about Electric Vehicles (EVs), ABCK-AmCham Kuwait in collaboration with BNK Automotive held a conference which was attended by AmCham Kuwait Members from different industries.

The agenda of the conference included - benefits that come with Electric Vehicle adaptation, and the future of electric vehicles globally and in Kuwait for automotive brands and the end user.

Mohammed Algharaballi, Brand Experience Professional at BNK opened the event by introducing participants to Volvo’s history, achievements, and collaborations, as well as their impact on the Electric Vehicle industry.

Algharaballi stated: “The world of automotive is shifting towards electrification, and BNK Automotive is honored to be in a position to help catalyze this change in Kuwait towards a brighter and greener future.”

Nils Mösko, Head of Strategy & Business Development at Polestar highlighted the fact that Polestar is the first ever purely electric vehicle brand introduced in the Kuwait market.

"This is a milestone that will pave the way for other manufacturers to introduce a fully electric vehicle option in the future, which will enable to users to have more options and will make electric vehicles more available for the public," he said.

He also stated that the success of the brand has been enabled by collaborations and partnerships that focus on decarbonization and sustainability. The goal of Polestar is to produce a climate-neutral car by 2030 without offset.

In March 2022, Polestar revealed its second concept car, an electric performance roadster that builds on the design, technology, and sustainability ambitions laid out by Precept and displays the brand’s vision for future sports cars.

The hard-top convertible presents an evolution of the unique design language first shown by Precept and emphasizes a dynamic driving experience. The concept further develops the focus on sustainability and technology, aiming toward greater circularity.

Polestar confirmed in August 2022 that a version of the concept will be executed as the Polestar 6 electric performance roadster, with a launch expected in 2026.

The event provided an opportunity for participants to learn more about electric vehicles and their impact on the environment.

As Kuwait explores the new era of electric vehicles, the hope is to increase road safety as electric vehicles have several automated features which enable the user’s safety, being part of the many reasons why electric vehicles are the future not just for Kuwait but globally.

To finalize the event, BNK’s GIA provided food and drinks for the participants, and participants were able to schedule test drives at the Volvo Studios for the Polestar 2.
