Asia Hilux re-emerged as Thailand’s top car exporter and top 4×4 exporter to Uganda, Kenya, and other East African nations such as Tanzania and Malawi, just as we were Thailand’s top car exporter and top 4×4 exporter to Southern African countries following the prohibition on imported stolen vehicles. Please keep in mind that you can only import vehicles manufactured between 2015 and ownwards because Kenya only allows cars fifteen years old to be imported. Uganda used to be free of such restrictions, but starting this year, Uganda will be subject to an eight-year ban. To Uganda, Kenya, and the rest of East Africa, we’re sending largely used Toyota Hilux Tigers, as well as almost new and new Toyota Hilux Vigos.
Please keep in mind that Asia Hilux is Thailand’s largest African exporter. Exporting to Uganda may be intimidating for some, but not for Asia Hilux. Today, we may load your automobile onto a ship bound for Mombasa or Dar es Salam.
