The new year for the automotive industry has begun with price increases across 131 models from every famous brand in the automotive market.

This rise in prices came amid new estimates set by car companies on the cost of imported cars and their components in US dollars after the Central Bank of Egypt’s (CBE) decision to liberalise the exchange rate.

The price increases were applied to German models Opel and Volkswagen, Korean models Hyundai and Kia, American Chevrolet and Jeep, and Japanese Mitsubishi and Toyota, among others.

The new increase is caused by significant leaps in prices over the past few months in the automotive market, driven by the rise in customs dollar prices, which doubled the tariff on cars cost.

Customs on cars used to be paid in the official price of the US dollar which was EGP 8.80 in November before the decision to float the Egyptian pound was made. The customs dollar currently is almost EGP 20, an increase of more than 100%.

Daily News Egypt received the new prices of European, Korean, American, Chinese, Japanese, and Asian cars for January.
