Toyota Prius international car shipping to Jordan

Who would have thought that one of the most environmentally progressive countries was located in the Middle East?

For the past 5 years, Jordan has lead the way in encouraging the import of environmentally friendly vehicles. By slashing sales tax and reducing import duties, the demand for hybrid car imports grew by over 2,700 percent.

Jordan International Hybrid Car ShippingIt began in 2012, when the Jordanian government reduced the special tax rate to 25 percent on hybrids with engines smaller than 2,500cc. As a result, the number of hybrid cars imported to Jordan increased from 558 hybrids in 2011 to over 16,000 in 2014.

Currently, there are over 36,000 hybrid cars in Jordan. And that number is only bound to grow.

Just last month, the Jordanian government exempted electric and hybrid cars from customs fees, general sales tax and special tax. They also began offering further tax breaks in order to motivate buyers to trade in older cars towards newer, environmentally friendly hybrid and electric vehicles.

Growing demand for hybrid cars in Jordan has caught the attention of US based dealers and car exporters.

International car traders source hybrid cars from dealers and private sellers, but those that buy in volume from US car auctions usually get the best deal.

Here are a few places where dealers look for cars:

  1. Manheim
  2. Copart
  3. IAAI
  4. Adesa

The most popular hybrid cars being shipped to Jordan are:

  1. Toyota Prius
  2. Toyota Camry
  3. Ford Escape
  4. Ford Fusion
  5. Ford Focus
