Uganda 2010: Corolla should lead the way

Car rhymes with Toyota in Uganda with up to 3/4 of vehicles in circulation being a second hand, old gen Toyota Corolla, Camry, RAV4, Hilux or Hiace (as taxis). The new car market in Uganda is virtually non-existant, but given the composition of the traffic in the streets of the capital Kampala, the Toyota Corolla should lead the ranking ahead of the Toyota Hilux.

Street scenes and videos below.

This is a great 7 minute video of the traffic in Kampala taken in December 2009 so it gives a good idea of the structure of the car market in Uganda: Uganda Streets YouTube video

This speculation is based on the observation of recent YouTube videos of the streets of Kampala. If you have more information about the Ugandan car market please make sure to get in touch!
