Libya 2010: Optra possibly #1

YouTube videos of the streets of Libya’s capital, Tripoli, show that in all likeliness, three models should lead the best-selling cars ranking in the country this year: the Chevrolet Optra, old gen Mitsubishi Lancer and Toyota Hilux. It looks like this trio has been on top of the charts for a few years in Libya.

Other successful models include the Toyota Corolla, Nissan Tiida, Mitsubishi L200, and Hyundai Santa Fe, Sonata & Accent.

More info and pictures below.

It is also interesting to note that the streets of Tripoli are filled with 90’s Daewoo Cielos, Daewoo Nubiras and Hyundai Accents, showing that the market was once totally dominated by Korean manufacturers, the tide having changed since with the demise of Daewoo (Chevrolet replacing it in the rankings).
