Egypt Opens Its Borders To Electric Cars: Our Pick Of The 7 Popular Electric Cars To Import

The Egyptian government is looking towards a green future by paving the way for electric vehicles. Starting last month, Egypt allowed the import of electric cars under 3 years old. The new law is an about-face from the previous policy, which did not allow any used vehicles to be brought into the country.  

This move by the Egyptian government to allow the import of electric cars from the US is a game-changer for both countries. With the US being one of the largest and most developed electric car markets in the world, Egypt now has access to top-of-the-line vehicles that are equipped with the latest technology. Not only will this bring about a shift towards sustainable transportation in Egypt, but it will also create a new avenue for the US auto industry to expand its reach globally. It's a win-win situation for both countries, and one that has the potential to significantly impact the future of the automotive industry.

The new law aligns with the government’s goal of increasing use of renewable energy to 22% by 2020. While demand for electric cars in Egypt is just now picking up steam, local dealers expect to see over 10,000 electric cars on the streets of Egypt within 2 years. Which means more demand for electric cars from the US.

According to data provided by T&D World, the US is second behind China with over 750,000 electric cars on the road. These are cars which will end up in dealer and auction lots, with an increasing number of them going overseas.

These are the most popular used electric cars currently sold in the United States.
