Bustanji said that the increase in prices is also due to the increase in the annual customs tax by 10 percent, which makes the prices of these cars higher by JD1,500 to JD2,000, making it almost impossible for citizens to buy such cars.

Bustanji said that the increase for all types of cars, running on petrol, diesel, electricity, or hybrid, happened globally by no less than 20 percent.
An informed source at the Ministry of Finance said that the ministry will not postpone the decision to increase by 10 percent the tax on hybrid cars, starting with next year.
