These commited companies, who are now actively producing/assembling vehicles in Nigeria, have a combined installed capacity to produce over 400,000 vehicles per year.

And this capacity is not only made up of fossil fuel powered vehicles. Recent developments have seen the start of Electric Vehicles assembly in Nigeria with the Hyundai Kona EV, and the test run of the Jet Systems Electric Van.

So, fundamentally, the Nigerian Automotive sector can produce 400,000 vehicles per annum, what the nation needs is Nigerians to buy that number of these locally produced/assembled vehicles instead of spending money on 400,000 second hand imported vehicles that have been used and dumped by other counties.
