Under the spotlight today: Somalia.
Given the country’s last 17 years of on and off civil war, the car market in Somalia is rather disorganised and limited. A good bet is most of the new cars sold in the country go to international Non-Governmental Organisations active in Somalia or to the Somalian government, which seem to favour the Toyota Land Cruiser 70 and 200.
This speculation is based on the observation of Flickr photos of the streets of the capital Mogadishu, and Hargeisa in Somaliland. If you have more information or official data about new car sales in Somalia please make sure you get in touch by commenting on this article!
