|2Cheap Cars now moving into 'new' imports|
Now a company that has been importing used cars on a large scale wants to do the same for new cars. It has really upset the official importer's association and no doubt rattled a few gin 'n tonics at various car importers HQs. Sliding off the pigs back is never an easy journey.
The cars will be obtained from dealers in Japan, happy to offload excess stock. If unregistered, then it could be classified as a new car. If preregistered in Japan by the dealer, it would surely then have to be called a used import. Because of the uncertain supply of any given model, what is available will be variable. It would be of interest to me if a full warranty is guaranteed.
Summary: This attempt to take on the existing new car importing industry in NZ will be a challenge. Pulling it off will take some doing. The company involved seems to have good connections in Japan and also the finance behind them to execute it. The thing is, will the car industry in Japan close ranks and stifle supply? Time will tell.
