  2. SKODA to enter Sri Lankan market After 17 years, ŠKODA is returning to Sri Lanka: In May 2020, ŠKODA is going to open a central showroom and sales location in Colombo, the capital of the island state located off the southern point of India. ŠKODA AUTO will be collaborating with IWS Automobiles (Pvt) Ltd as an importer and trading partner. ŠKODA’s initial line-up will include four model series: the small car FABIA, the mid-class SUPERB, the large SUV KODIAQ and the compact SUV KAROQ. The brand’s bestseller, the OCTAVIA, will expand the range of models later this year. By utilising the existing synergies in the INDIA 2.0 project, ŠKODA could also offer models in Sri Lanka that will be developed under the upcoming model campaign in the Indian market. Customers can order the first vehicles from the beginning of March 2020, and the first deliveries will be made when the new showroom opens in May. Consistently internationalizing the company and opening up new markets are central pillars of Strategy 2025, with which ŠKODA AUTO has set the course for sustainable, long-term growth. The strategy also encompasses the central topics of electro-mobility and digitization and creates the prerequisites for transforming ŠKODA AUTO from an automobile manufacturer into a ‘Simply Clever Company for the best mobility solutions’. https://www.automobilsport.com/cars-tuning--37,204109,SKODA-AUTO-soon-to-enter-Sri-Lankan-market,news.htm
  3. Ridiculous pricing will ensure they don’t sell, very disappointed with the launch of this car…
  4. I don't think they'll move half of their sales target, since the vehicle priced at Rs.3,050,000/ onwards.. “Console mounted joystick gear lever for stress free gear change with gear shift alerts” So it’s manual transmission…
  5. Toyota Yaris (Vitz) to replace Prius c (Aqua) The Toyota Yaris hatch will be available with hybrid power for the first time when it arrives and it will consume less fuel than any other Toyota model. Toyota announced the first Yaris hybrid will consume just 3.3L/100km, which is less than the Prius (3.4L/100km) and also less than the Prius c hybrid (3.9L/100km), which will be axed by the time the new Yaris arrives. https://www.motoring.com.au/new-toyota-yaris-to-replace-prius-c-122547/
  6. It will be better if vehicle duty is calculated on the cubic capacity (CC) of the engine, be it petrol, diesel or hybrid, this system will be acceptable to all segments of the industry, including the customer.
  7. The government has been told to rethink the current tax duty structure on vehicle imports and Luxury Tax, as they have effectively put a lid on vehicle imports in excess of 1,600cc engine capacity. According to the latest vehicle registrations data analysed by JB Securities, a Colombo-based equities brokerage and a research house, only one new car and four pre-owned cars have been registered with engine capacity in excess of 1,600cc in December. “Taxes on cars are via an excise duty based on the engine capacity and a Luxury Tax of 60 percent above the value of Rs.4.0 million—an illustration of the need for a rethink of the current policy,” JB Securities Managing Director Murtaza Jafferjee stated in a note. Last October, the then government revised the Luxury Tax formula on vehicles by resorting to calculate the tax based on the manufacturing cost or the cost, insurance and freight (CIF) value of a vehicle, instead of the previous used method based on the engine capacity. The new tax move was expected to generate revenue of Rs.48 billion. The revised tax is applied on vehicles registered on or after November 1, 2019. The Luxury Tax on vehicles registered before November 1, 2019, was based on their engine capacity. Accordingly, pre-November 1, the Luxury Tax was applicable on only three categories of vehicles—petrol vehicles with cylinder capacity more than 1,800cc, diesel vehicles with cylinder capacity of more than 2300cc and electric vehicles with more than 200kw power. But after November 1, the Luxury Tax became applicable on all petrol and diesel vehicles with a CIF value exceeding Rs.3.5 million. A tax rate of 120 percent is applicable on the amount exceeding the luxury free threshold i.e. Rs.3.5 million. The Luxury Tax applicable on hybrid petrol vehicles exceeding the CIF value of Rs.4 million is 80 percent and on hybrid diesel vehicles exceeding the CIF value of Rs.4 million is 90 percent. On electric vehicles with a CIF value exceeding Rs.6 million, a 60 percent Luxury Tax is charged. At the time the amendment was brought in, the vehicle importers opposed to the move, saying it would hit their sales dearly. http://www.dailymirror.lk/business__main/Govt-urged-to-rethink-duty-structure-on-vehicle-imports/245-182039
