Cars manufactured in South Africa roundup - June 2023

Wrong. Everest is fully imported now.

Swap it with the new Amarok, which is made alongside the Ranger.

I was wondering about the Amarok. Also, does Nissan still make the NP300 in SA? They no longer sell it here.
 
I remember when Hyundai first came in they came in through Namibia or somewhere, some loophole or something.
 
To avoid import tax.
Yeah, I think the objective is for the manufacturer to earn credits to import other models cheaper. Import credits or export credits.

Only reason manufacturing happens here is for the credits. Take that away and we'll go full Australia with every factory closing up and shipping their robots to other overseas facilities.
 
To avoid import tax.
Not really. We do get a lot of rebates by ordering part by part. And then there is also component exports. The major manufacturers actually sell the rebate certificates to the CKD plants.
