That for engines 1,500 cc – 2,000 cc decreases from US$10,000 to US$8,500; that for engines 2,500 – 3,000 cc stays the same at US$12,000; and that for engines over 5,000 cc ups to US$26,250 from US$25,000.
As for vans for six to nine passengers with a 2,000 cc engine or smaller, the new tax level goes down to US$7,650 from US$9,000. When the engine is 2,000 cc to 3,000 cc, the tax level is down by US$2,800 to 11,200.
About 500 used cars have been imported to Viet Nam since May last year when the government allowed import of these cars.
