It’s always exciting to see the first Supercharger pop up in any nation, as we can see from these ecstatic Tesla owners in the UAE.

Despite wealth from oil, the UAE is no stranger to Teslas. Back in 2017, the Dubai Taxi Corporation added a fleet of Model X units to its line up. In one year after its launch, the Tesla taxis hit 2.1 million kilometres travelled in Dubai; the company then added 75 more Tesla Model S sedans to its fleet in 2018.

Dubai previously said it wants to 25% of trips in the city to be driverless by 2030.
