inDrive, a prominent global mobility and urban services platform, is taking steps to contribute to sustainability in the communities where it operates through a collaboration with the Natural Gas Vehicles Company (CARGAS).
CARGAS, with its focus on reducing air pollution and making a positive impact on the environment, advocates for the use of natural gas vehicles. Through this strategic collaboration, inDrive aims to provide specialised services to drivers registered on its application who own gas-powered cars.
In a bid to incentivise eco-friendly practises, CARGAS stations will offer a 15% discount on Visco forte oil to inDrive’s registered drivers, along with a complimentary oil change service, available across all provinces. Furthermore, in an effort to encourage vehicle conversions, drivers will be presented with an attractive interest-free, one-year instalment plan, covering the costs of the conversion. To sweeten the deal, those who choose to convert their vehicles will benefit from an extended warranty on the conversion, lasting 18 months instead of the standard 12 months.
To facilitate this collaboration, inDrive representatives will be available at two CARGAS stations in Cairo initially, with plans to expand to additional stations across all provinces in the future. Through this joint endeavour, inDrive and CARGAS aim to drive forward sustainability initiatives and promote the adoption of natural gas vehicles in the regions they operate.
Moataz Toba, Business Development Representative for inDrive said: “Natural gas is cheaper than gasoline. This makes it a more affordable option for our drivers, especially considering the rising fuel prices, so they can work harder and get more rides, and save money. inDrive is keen on saving the environment and believes in sustainable development. Using natural gas helps reduce air pollution and improve air quality, which is essential for public health and the environment.”
“The Egyptian government has been actively promoting the use of natural gas as part of its energy strategy. This includes implementing incentives such as tax exemptions, subsidies, and the establishment of CNG fuelling stations across the country, encouraging more people to switch to this cleaner fuel alternative,” added Moataz Toba.
