Motor vehicles power growth for Alabama’s export machine

Alabama-built vehicles are blazing a trail in the global economy, ranking as the state’s top export product and serving as a brand ambassador that landed in 73 foreign countries in 2021.

More than $7.7 billion in Alabama vehicle exports were recorded in 2021, topping the total from pre-pandemic 2019 by over $1 billion, according to data from the Alabama Department of Commerce.

Overseas shipments of motor vehicles rose 38.4% in value from 2020’s total of $5.5 billion.

Increased motor vehicle exports represent an encouraging sign for Alabama’s auto industry, which experienced a 17% decline in overseas shipments in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world’s economy.
