Land rovers are sold here but as a part of JAGUAR egypt !!
they are not doing good tho , even jags as well .. thier price is just not right ... they cost more than 7series bmws and new S class !

Bentley .. never seen one here
the new Honda Civic never made it here till now , we still have the old shaped one , the japaneese , accords , honda city and honda jazz

we also have factories of Hyundai , Nissan , BMW , Mercedes , Daewoo , Fiat , Opel , Lada and even Chery has a CKD factory here .

but they are not manufacturing cars ... these are all CKD factories .. 45% of these cars are Egyptian materials .. propably the useless stuff :P

Anyways thanks for the info , my dream car is a Mini S ...
but it costs more than the new BMW 316i here !!!! $58,000 !!! ( us dollars ! )

In China the cheapest mini is $43,000 USD the most expensive is $57,500USD



Quite a mark up! And you know what? You still see lots of minis driving around Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Qingdao, Dalian etc. Crazy money.

yepp

let me tell you some more prices that would make ur heart stop ...

Suzuki Neo Swift $20,000
VW Passat >> 1.6 << $43,000
Honda City 1.5 > $21,000
Hona Jazz ( Fit in china ) >> $19,500
Toyota Camry 2.4 $89,000

lol the crappy old 1999 Daewoo lanos , localy assembeled. .still costs $11,000 !!

see why chinese cars are selling here ?? I know most of chery cars and other brands ( except geely ) Outperform any LANOS any give day in any given term for the same or less price !!

Chevorlet Aveo , chevys supposingly CHEPAST car
1.5 8v engine , no options >> $14,000

while you have the Chery A5 1.6 with almost any feature u might think off , from remote controls , electronic stuff to abs ebd and airbags and 3 years waranty costs $11,000 .. !!


no the mini is not made out of gold , its just that

1 US Dollars = 5.75 Egyptian Pounds

Imported Cars that are 1600CC and below are subject to 40% customs and 12% taxes , ie 52%


ie if the car costs 10,000 dollas it will be 15,200 without the dealers profit , without the shipping costs , without the licensing and insurance and crap .. it will end up costing $20,000 at least .

the only EXPENSIVE brands with higer engines that are somehow LOGICALY priced are BMWs and Mercedes , but thats only because they are being ASSEMBLED localy at thier CKD factories here .

2006 BMW 316 > $62

how about giving us price comparisons, say between a chinese model vs. the closest equivalent non-chinese name brand? it would be interesting to find out at what price differential a customer is willing to go chinese vs. name brand?

so, the chinese brands are offering more features at lower prices, presumably to tempt the potential buyer to go chinese. Next question-are they offering warranty coverage longer than their rivals, or other perks like lower financing rates, guaranteed service vehicles, etc.,etc?
