Accordingly, the import duty on CBU vehicles priced below $40,000 will be increased from 60 to 70 percent. And this tax is applicable to petrol vehicles with engine capacity below 3,000 cc and diesel vehicles below 2,500 cc.Similarly, the customs duty on electric vehicles manufactured abroad has also increased from 60 percent to 70 percent. The budget proposes to increase the duty on imported vehicles and semi-trailers from 30 percent to 35 percent.Meanwhile, imports of fully-built cars worth more than $40,000 are already subject to a 100 percent tariff. This tax rate applies to petrol vehicles with a capacity above 3000 cc and diesel vehicles with a capacity above 2500 cc. Shamsher Diwan, senior vice president at rating agency ICRA, said that the change is unlikely to have a major impact. This is because most luxury cars are currently assembled in the country. He said this increase in import duty will further encourage domestic car production.
