Jazz, Accord, CR-V and Civic car models were imported.

Of the batch, 1,054 cars will be kept at SPCT-Hiep Phuoc Port and the remainder transferred to Dinh Vu Port in Haiphong.

According to a representative from Honda Tay Ho, thanks to the zero import tax policy, Honda CR-Vs have fallen by VND240 million (USD10,909) to just VND898 million (USD40,818) for version E and VND998 million (USD45,363) for version G models.

Car showroom owners in Vietnam have claimed lots of customers had made deposits to buy ASEAN-imported cars while awaiting zero import duties. 

They also said that the zero import duties could attract more customers to buy cars and the car sales are expected to boom early this year.

According to the survey by the marketing strategy consulting firm Solidiance released in last June, the car ownership ratio in Vietnam was only 16 cars for 1,000 people. This rate was lower than Malaysia's 341 cars, Thailand's 196 cars and Indonesia's 55 cars.
