Vehicle importers say that vehicle sales in the country have declined rapidly.
They point out that the price of registered vehicles is going up further with the cessation of vehicle imports.
This is due to the fact that car owners are tempted to sell their vehicles through various websites.
Vehicle importers say that due to the unreasonable price of registered vehicles being sold in this manner, people have to continue to dream of vehicles.
For example, a Vitz car manufactured in 2016 is currently sold in Sri Lanka at a price of 7,650,000.
A Witz car manufactured in 2019 is priced at US $ 10,730 on a Japanese website and is valued at 2,178,190 Sri Lankan Rupees (Rs. XNUMX / =).
The cost of transporting the car to the Hambantota port with insurance is US $ 1,549, which is Rs. 314,447 in Sri Lankan currency.
When the price of the car and the shipping + insurance fees are added, the total is Rs. 2,492,637.
Accordingly, it is clear that the Vitz car manufactured in the year 2016 is priced at Rs. 5,157,363.
