In Tunisia, car companies like Renault, Fiat and Citroën could face some competition as a local brand begins selling its cars in the market.
Wallyscar is Tunisia’s first and so far only domestic vehicle manufacturer. But in a market dominated by foreign brands they seem to be making quite an impact.
Assembling Tunisia’s first locally-made car started back in 2006. It’s an ambitious project that was launched by Zied Guiga and Omar Guiga. The company only began making profit eight years after its launch.
Convincing people to buy the Tunisian made brand has been slow but it’s a dream come true for the company’s founders. Wallyscar manages to export hundred of cars worldwide every year. And in recent years, they slowly started selling cars locally and hoping to take over the automobile market in Tunisia.
Wallyscar production plant is in the capital Tunis. Prices starting from 12.500 Euro. Learn more on Wallyscar official website.
This video made available by Tunisie Automobile Magazine and Sadri Skander presents the main Wallyscar model.
