Algeria Bans Diesel Cars In Push Towards Electric Models

Spread the love

Diesel cars can no longer be imported or made in Algeria, and local car manufacturers are now required by law to start producing at least one range of electric vehicles if they’ve been trading for five years or more.

 

The ban is for environmental and regulatory reasons.

When the Algerian government banned imports of assembly lines kits two years ago, a number of car businessmen were successfully prosecuted and jailed for fraud and money laundering.

Those strict importation measures caused a nationwide shortage of cars and led to an unprecedented surge in prices.

There are more than 6.5m licensed vehicles in Algeria, according to latest data from the office for national statistics.

 

At the last count in 2019, World Bank data listed Algeria’s carbon dioxide emissions per capita at 3.98 metric tons. That’s almost half of South Africa’s 7.51 metric tons per capita, but both countries are eclipsed by the US whose carbon dioxide emissions are an estimated 14.67 metric tons per capita.
