Abstract: The transportation sector is a major contributor to global carbon emissions, and Saudi Arabia is no exception. This paper explores the challenges and obstacles to implementing clean transportation in Saudi Arabia, with a particular focus on the use of low carbon emission vehicles in hot regions. Hot weather poses unique challenges for the use of low carbon vehicles, as air conditioning systems can significantly reduce their efficiency. This paper proposes a model for choosing the most appropriate low carbon vehicles for hot regions, taking into account factors such as mileage and overall environmental impact. The study examines the current state of transportation in Saudi Arabia and identifies key barriers to the adoption of low carbon vehicles, including a lack of infrastructure, limited consumer awareness, and the dominance of the oil industry. The paper also explores potential solutions to these obstacles, such as government incentives and investment in charging infrastructure. Ultimately, this paper aims to provide insights into the challenges and opportunities surrounding the adoption of low carbon transportation in Saudi Arabia, highlighting the need for a collaborative effort between government, industry, and consumers to drive sustainable change.
