U can literally buy a Porsche for that amount.
Kana wakapota uchinyutura you can go more than 300km.Nice car,i will consider it a good investnment if the car costs 20k and have a life span of 10years or more.The price tag of 40k needs the car to have a life span of more than 25years for it to be a good investment.
A really used Porse… 😂
A brand new Porsche from Dubai. Excluding tax.
Well the cheapest car on the official Porsche Dubai website is the Macan starting at AED225,900 which translates to $61,220 – even if we remove 15% tichiti tax, that’s still $52,000. I need details on this magical 46k Porsche
It’s a car dealership.
Im forgetting the name but they didn’t have an English website last time time I checked
I will get back to you
We haven’t even added duty and it’s difficult to find this unicorn.
Show me a 46K brand new from showroom Porsche ndonotenga next week chaiye and give you a 5% finders fee.
As unlikely as it sounds, it happens or used to happen before COVID, just not here! Automotive YouTube has shown me that given the right combination of circumstances, American dealerships would rather eat a short term loss than keep inventory beyond a certain point (they can lose allocations if they don’t move units etc). It doesn’t happen everyday but it’s to the point where these guys know to keep their eyes open for it. But let’s be real, if you are looking for a deal of that level on a performance vehicle, you might be better off going for a nice lexus or some American muscle in the long run coz Porsche maintenance will put you in the ground, especially in Zim😂
It’s to much 😄😄
Quite cheap and value for money
It’s a good thing it’s suitable for commercial use, coz the price is gonna need strong revenue to justify it. With all the benefits electric brings to the table, I can see it being not only viable, but ideal vehicle for the right customers
tesla to the people
You know, it just might happen! If the chinese built $25000 Tesla Hatchback makes it out of china alive after 2023, it could trickle down to more emerging markets. 🤞🏾
Bringing them to Zimbabwe would be expensive though. By the time all the import duties, surtax and other rip-offs charges here are added, the price will be closer to treble that!
Its a bit expensive ford f150 electric truck is going for 40k
With a range of 300km for commercial vehicle not bad at all. But I seldom trust manufacturers claims, even if the it can do let’s say 250km as a city delivery vehicle it could be a good investment also the rates you could charge would be very competitive and if your base of operations is had access to a DC socket then you are set… Only if Zesa decides to play nice. But all in all the uses are numerous, even as a shuttle service vehicle this would be great… Now where to find an Angel investor willing to fund the idea
