Vietnam Sales By Brand : 2013

The delightful country of Vietnam

Cars in this Indochina nation are a luxury. They were in all countries once of course. There is a 60% duties on imported vehicles, meaning nearly all vehicles sold in Vietnam are locally assembled. This data is - as it often is for Asia - only locally assembled cars, and comes from VAMA.

A 35% increase is a large amount of growth, with Toyota the leader by a huge margin. Mazda only came on board VAMA this year, while Mercedes data stopped two years ago. Trying to understand some of the sales data is difficult. I am unsure what Xe is, under the Thaco company that mainly sells Kia. A market that is fascinating nonetheless.
