Zambia: Toyota king

Toyota Hilux in Livingstone, Zambia June 2007

* Click on title for more street scenes! *

The Zambian car market shows the strength of Toyota: at least 1 in every 3 cars is a Toyota Corolla! In all likeliness the Corolla is still the best-selling car in the country these days, with the Hilux also extremely popular.

Also worth noting are the Nissan Hardbody (aka Frontier), Mitsubishi Colt (aka L200) and Toyota Camry. This commentary is based on my observations in the streets of Livingstone in June 2007. Please get in touch if you have more info!

    There was a doco on SBS last night that included lots of street scenes of Zambia. All those Corollas above are still there I think. All I saw was Corollas from the 1991 and 1995 (JP) generations, and a lone Fortuna. I think the doco was 2011 so your observation about Toyotas still stands. Even though it was about Chinese investment in Africa I saw no Chinese cars or trucks.

      Cool thanks for the update Paul! Glad to see my observations still stand and yes I didn’t see any Chinese cars or trucks when I was there…
