I can share with you today and for the first time on BestSellingCarsBlog a models ranking for Uganda. In January just 140 new vehicles found a buyer in the country, and the Toyota Land Cruiser (including Prado) carves itself the lion’s share at no less than 35.7% share thanks to 50 sales. It is followed by the Toyota Hilux and Mitsubishi L200.

For the first time on BSCB I can share with you official sales data for Uganda. 2,465 new vehicles were registered in the country in 2013, up 20% on 2012 and including 1,837 passenger cars and light/medium commercial vehicles, for which we now have access to detailed brand data. Japanese manufacturers are ultra dominant in Uganda, securing over 80% of the new light vehicle market. Toyota reigns supreme with 831 sales and 45.2% share and should still be in a position to place the Corolla and Hilux at #1 and #2 in the country. Nissan follows with 21.1% share ahead of Mitsubishi, Ford and a surprise 5th: Indian manufacturer Tata with 4.5% of the Ugandan market. Note a total of 50,659 vehicles were ‘first registered’ in 2013, that includes used cars imported into the country, to be compared with 39,147 in 2012, 35,529 in 2010 and 28,026 in 2007.

Car rhymes with Toyota in Uganda with up to 3/4 of vehicles in circulation being a second hand, old gen Toyota Corolla, Camry, RAV4, Hilux or Hiace (as taxis). The new car market in Uganda is virtually non-existant, but given the composition of the traffic in the streets of the capital Kampala, the Toyota Corolla should lead the ranking ahead of the Toyota Hilux.
