Fastrack, one of the leading car rental agencies in Dubai, has just announced its latest addition to its product line: the solar electric buggy. The introduction of this innovative vehicle marks a significant step in Fastrack's commitment to sustainable transportation solutions, aligning with the United Arab Emirates' goal of reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainability. In this blog, we'll take a closer look at Fastrack's new solar electric buggies and the company's vision to follow the sustainable footsteps of the UAE.
Riding the solar rays
The United Arab Emirates has made it a priority to adopt clean and renewable energy sources in order to reduce its carbon footprint and promote a greener future. With its abundant sunshine, the UAE is well-positioned to take advantage of solar energy, making it the perfect setting for Fastrack to launch its new line of solar electric buggies. These buggies provide a convenient and eco-friendly mode of transportation, perfect for exploring the beautiful deserts, beaches, and cities of the UAE.
Fastrack's solar electric buggies are designed to provide a comfortable and seamless driving experience while also reducing the impact on the environment. The buggies are equipped with solar panels that convert the sun's energy into electricity, powering the vehicle and eliminating the need for traditional fuel sources. The combination of solar power and an electric motor results in zero emissions, making these buggies a truly sustainable solution for transportation.
A brief look at the Specs

With a powerful 4KW AC motor, it can reach speeds of up to 45 km/h and can travel up to 120 km on a single charge, thanks to its maintenance-free battery. The AC controller makes sure that the vehicle runs smoothly and efficiently. The buggy also has a variable-speed transaxle, providing a smooth and seamless driving experience.
Safety is key
Safety is a priority with these buggies! They’re equipped with seat belts to ensure passengers are securely fastened during the ride.
