The Key to a Sustainable Source of Fuel for Transport
The South African electric vehicle (EV) market is still in its infancy, but is expected to grow at a slow but steady pace over the next five years.South Africa’s automotive sector is currently ranked 23rd in terms of manufacturing and is a key player in the international automotive value chain.

The EV market is currently restrained due to a variety of factors which include unfavourable EV policy and a lack of infrastructure.International OEMs having a presence in the country have invested heavily in an attempt to grow the market locally.

Their global strategies are slowly filtering down into the local South African market, with 20 BEV and PHEV offerings currently available.This number is set to increase over the next few years as more OEMs are introducing their EVs to the South African market.

The charging infrastructure is currently lacking, but is expected to expand through upcoming projects, which are likely to necessitate the further uptake of EVs in the country. EV for public transport is currently under consideration within various cities across South Africa; the introduction of EVs will result in a sustainable and local sourcing of transport fuel.
