ELECTRIC CARS IN MOROCCO: THE 8 FLAGSHIP MODELS OF 2024!

Electric cars in Morocco

While their presence on the roads remains modest, electric cars in Morocco are increasingly making waves. Dealerships and importers now offer 100% electric models whose autonomy, efficiency, and comfort allow for daily use. Let’s shine a spotlight on the 8 vehicles, sorted by category, that have caught the attention of the editorial team at the beginning of this year!

Opting for electric cars in Morocco is above all about embracing eco-responsible behavior. Depending on how you’ll use it,  various models, in all categories of vehicles, are now available.

At first, electric cars in Morocco are a rather high investment, much more significant than that of a traditional car. But in the medium term, it allows for significant savings. Recharging an electric car in Morocco to travel 100 kilometers costs around 20 MAD. Refueling for the same distance costs around 100 MAD! In terms of maintenance, you will also save money: no oil changes, no vehicle registration tax, no luxury tax to pay.

One important question remains: what about charging? Let’s face it,  just a few years ago, electric cars required frequent stops to be recharged. But things have changed significantly. Today, the real concern is how to sustainably produce the necessary energy.

In Morocco, nearly 80% of energy production is still dependent on coal, oil, and gas.. By 2030, the country aims to produce at least 50% of it through renewable energies. In this context, several options are available to you when you become the owner of an electric car in Morocco. You can recharge your vehicle by simply plugging it into your electrical network (220V) at home. It will recharge throughout the night, allowing you to drive worry-free  for at least a whole day. You can also plug  it into a shared charging station in your residential building or at your workplace.

 

Otherwise, you will need to go to one of the gas stations equipped with fast charging stations. You can also connect to one of the apps that list charging stations. By 2026, according to APIME (Intersectoral Professional Association for Electric Mobility), nearly 2500 new charging stations are expected to be set up across Morocco. This should convince even the most skeptical among you to switch to electric!

Ultimately, electric cars in Morocco, just like all over the world,  are the vehicle of tomorrow. All that’s left to hope for is that its production will become cleaner (lithium batteries and massive water use) to truly reduce its environmental impact. The development of renewable energies to recharge it would also contribute to this effort!
