    Post Covid the local auto industry seems to be revving up again with a few misfires here and there as OEMs still have to contend with supply chain issues, floods and intermittent power. While consumers are being faced with some tough choices on whether to trade in that diesel guzzling SUV for something more thrifty as the fuel price smashes record after record.

Although electric vehicle (EV) sales remained low across Africa, they increased by 90%, of which BEVs (battery electric vehicles) accounted for 85%.
