Morocco is taking part in an increasing number of projects so that it can take advantage of the boom in "ecological" cars in Europe, its main market.

Although local sales of electric vehicles have increased significantly, the overall situation remains negligible due to a lack of infrastructure and incentives from the Moroccan authorities.

At a time when the global automotive industry is in the process of transitioning to electric vehicles, Morocco is already trying to position itself as a future regional hub.

“Morocco has a total production capacity of 700,000 cars, some of which are designed to make the transition to electric cars fairly easily,” Ryad Mezzour, the minister of industry and trade, told us.
