AMMAN —AlGhad— Demand on hybrid vehicles domestically has increased by 21.2 per cent in 2017’s first nine months, compared to the same duration last year, according to the statistics by The Jordanian Free Zones Investors Association (JFZIA).

Chairman of the Association, Nabil Rumman, told AlGhad that it is probably the recurrent hikes in fuel prices, which have driven demand up for alternatives.

Meanwhile, demand on traditional fuel-operated vehicles has declined by 21.5 per cent, comparatively, for the same durations.

In nine months since the beginning of 2017, demand on hybrid vehicles has increased to 21,700 purchases, compared to 17,900 for the same duration in 2016.
