Skyline Automotive W.L.L., the official distribution partner of the Hyundai Motor Company and its luxury brand Genesis for Qatar, has delivered a fleet of Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid cars to Pick Me Up Limousine company in Qatar, making it the first limousine company to adopt eco-friendly vehicles for its customers in Qatar.
This step falls in line with both companies’ commitment to the Environmental Pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030 which aims to reduce fuel emissions and increase efficiency. With the world’s increasing focus on reducing fuel emissions, and more automobile companies paving the way for hybrid and electric cars, customers are now opting to choose hybrid vehicles for their personal and professional needs. As is the case with the limousine industry.
Thanks to its eco-friendly features, Hyundai’s IONIQ car has gained increasing popularity over the past few years in Qatar and elsewhere. Most recently, the Hyundai IONIQ became the first electric car to become part of Queensland’s government QFleet, as the Australian state has been increasingly heading towards a zero-carbon future.
The Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid also includes satellite navigation, state-of-the-art safety features and offer greater mileage, making it a cost-effective car. These features led the IONIQ Hybrid to be named the ‘Best Hybrid Car’ at the Qatar Car Awards 2018.
Speaking about the delivery of the cars to Doha, Mr. Bernhard Dolinek, Managing Director of Automotive at Jaidah Group, remarked:
We’re happy with our new partnership with Pick Me Up Limousine company in Qatar. The Pick Me Up Limousine company has earned a reputation for quality performance, and we’re proud to know the Hyundai IONIQ has been selected as the vehicle of choice for one of Qatar’s top limousine providers.
Hybrid vehicles are the first step towards transitioning into full electric cars in the future, in line with the visions of Hyundai Motor Company and Skyline Automotive. The IONIQ Electric and Kona are now available in the international market, and we’re looking forward to introducing them to Qatar.
Mr. Mohammed Abdulla Al-Mansori, Owner of Pick Me Up Limousine, said:
We’re privileged to be working closely with Skyline Automotive, and it’s not surprising that we chose the Hyundai IONIQ as our vehicles of choice, given it’s one of the best and cost-effective hybrid cars in the world. We always seek to offer what is best for our country and our customers. Qatar has been increasingly focusing on the Environmental Pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030. As part of the automotive industry, we feel it’s our duty to make positive contributions to the environment, in line with our country’s ambitions.
