Saudi Arabia’s First Car Showroom For Women Only Opens In Jeddah (Photos)
saudi arabia’s first car showrrom
A Saudi private company on Thursday opened the first car showroom for women only just five months before a decision allowing females to drive takes effect.
The showroom was opened in a shopping mall in the western Red Sea port city of Jeddah to allow women the freedom to choose their own cars before they hit the road.
In a historic decision late last year, King Salman gave Saudi women the right to drive, abolishing an almost three-decade ban based on religious reasons.
From June Saudi women will be entitled to take to the roads following the decision.
No men allowed.
The showroom offers a wide selection of vehicles from various makes and is staffed by women only.
It also provides women with solutions to finance their purchase provided by leading banks and financial companies.
The company plans to open more automobiles showrooms for women in the oil-rich kingdom.
Saudi Arabia announced in September that it would finally lift a ban on women driving , becoming the last country in the world to allow women to get behind the wheel. dailymail
