Dubai South is offering car dealers a helping hand with a modern business center! Find out how you can open a car dealership in Dubai

While the U.A.E. automotive industry faced tough challenges in 2016, a report by the UAE government shows that the U.A.E. will continue to be one of the most robust automotive markets in the GCC thanks to factors such as low fuel costs, low import tariffs, high per capita disposable income, and a favorable tax regime.

The sale of luxury cars, electric and hybrid vehicles, and motorcycles has seen a positive burst with multiple finance options and attractive insurance making it easy for residents to buy luxury cars. The U.A.E. relies heavily on imports, with virtually the entire supply of car and light vehicles being imported.
