Algeria Automotive Sales Data & Recent Highlights

The total sales of new cars in Algeria have hovered at a depressed rate for several years now. New car sales are way down compared to a decade ago, now barely between 20k and 30k new sales. The decline in car sales in Algeria is due to a number of factors, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic crisis, and the shortage of foreign currency. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains and led to production delays, while the economic crisis has made it difficult for people to afford cars. The shortage of foreign currency has made it difficult for car manufacturers to import parts and vehicles into Algeria.

Despite the decline in car sales, there are some positive trends in the Algerian car market. The government has introduced a number of incentives to boost car sales, such as tax breaks and subsidies. In addition, the Algerian car market is expected to benefit from the growth of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), which will make it easier for car manufacturers to export cars to Algeria.
