Average age of cars in Saudi is just 3.8 years old according to Confused.com
The average age of cars in Saudi Arabia is just 3.8 years old – making KSA home to the youngest cars in the world. Confused.com looked at the average ages of cars in 30 countries from the top 50 ranked by GDP.
China was second at 5.1 years and the United Arab Emirates was third at 5.2. These were followed by Singapore, Austria, UK, Switzerland, Ireland, Japan and Denmark.
The list claims the oldest cars were in Argentina at 17 years – though Cuba still has cars dating back to the 1930s, with an average age of over 30 years, but I guess the GDP is lower.
Newer cars mean a reduced impact on the environment. In the last 20 years average new car CO2 emissions have dropped by 50g/km – from 172 to 120.
Saudi doesn’t have a plan to phase out fossil fuel cars, but introduced a fuel efficiency standard in 2016 and made petrol a little more expensive. Plus invested billions of dollars in American EV company, Lucid Motors, and made agreements with the Japanese to install EV charging stations.
So it looks life even the Gulf is about to go electric!
