Holland Car Awash Executive in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia September 2010

In the busy streets of Addis Ababa, the Toyota Hilux, Corolla, Hiace, Land Cruiser and 2003 Hyundai Atos are the most popular new cars, with the Suzuki Vitara, Chery QQ and Mitsubishi L200 also worth mentioning.

Holland Car, the first Ethiopian car assembler, is starting to get noticed in the crazy Addis traffic with the Abay (a Lifan 520). However the cooperation with Lifan has been replaced with JAC in 2009, with the launches of the Tekeze (JAC Tojoy hb), Abay Executive (JAC Tojoy sedan), Awash Executive (JAC B-Class) and Shebele (JAC B-Cross).
