Chad: Hilux & Corolla most popular new cars
* Click on title for street scenes and video! *
Extremely limited new car market in Chad, with the only recent cars in the streets of capital N’Djamena being the Toyota Hilux and Corolla. Most recent videos on YouTube date back to 2007/2008, so it’s impossible to know whether the new gen Corolla is selling at all in the country.
Up to 1 in every 3 cars in N’Djamena are still 1970′s Peugeot 504s, mainly as yellow “taxi brousse” (bush taxi), reflecting the past French influence on the car market – the most recent successful French model being the 1995 Peugeot 406.
