Vehicles are imported into Zambia by open transport, such as single-car trailers and trucks. Vehicles are driven into Zambia mainly from Tanzania, Namibia and South Africa.
The most popular vehicles in Zambia are saloon cars and station wagons. Other types include pickups, trucks, motorcycles and bicycles.
Automobiles and Motorcycles
In Zambia you can purchase a car new or second hand. Prices of new vehicles are higher than in countries which manufacture cars due to transportation charges and import taxes. Second hand cars also hold their value better in Zambia. The same holds for motorcycles. Well known brands like Toyota, Renault and Honda have authorised agents in Zambia. Before buying a second hand vehicle in Zambia, get it thoroughly checked by a professional mechanic.
