CBU turnover stood at $184 million for first half of May.
In the first half of May, 5,455 completely-built-up (CBU) automobiles were imported into Vietnam, worth $184 million, Vietnam Customs reported. On average 346 were purchased each day, with $12.26 million being outlaid.
Imported automobiles are quite expensive, at around $37,000 each on average, including customs duties but excluding other taxes and fees.
Among the 5,455 imported automobiles were 847 four-seat cars, 75 with nine seats or more, and 2,455 trucks and special-purpose vehicles. The high number of special purpose vehicles was behind the substantial value of imported automobiles during the period.
From January to mid-May the total number of imported CBU vehicles was 40,464 with turnover at $1.06 billion, according to Vietnam Customs. The volume was double year-on-year while turnover was triple.
