According to a recent study by the Mozambique Association for Import and Distribution of Vehicles (AIDAM), only 13% of all imported vehicles in 2013 were new. That’s 6,000 out of a total of 45,000 vehicles imported into Mozambique in 2013. Interestingly, Mozambique does not regulate the import of used vehicles into the country, and as a result, according to Dalila Tsihlakis, CEO of Ronil, the exclusive agent in Mozambique for the Mazda, Iveco and BMW, “some of the second-hand vehicles that are acquired do not even stay on the road for six months as they arrive in the country already damaged or with serious faults.” Pick-up trucks rule the roost in Mozambique and my estimation is Toyota leader of the brands ranking and the Hilux topping the models sales charts.
