Saudi Arabia Opens First Car Showroom Only For Women (Photos)
The women in Saudi Arabia have finally gotten their first car showroom following King Salman’s abolishment of the ban of women to drive.
A Saudi private company on Thursday opened the first car showroom for women only just five months before a decision allowing women 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 decision late last year, King Salman gave Saudi women the right to drive, abolishing an almost three-decade ban based on religious reasons.
Dailymail reports reveal, 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.
