Saudi Arabia announced its decision of letting women drive last week in a royal decree read live on state television. The law will come in effect from June 2018. The news has been met with positive reactions around the globe.
It was one of the best times for automakers to join in the celebration. Ford, Nissan and Volkswagen wasted no time and put out some of the best tweets we’ve seen.
