Somewhat funny approaching at car vs. public transport

AFAIK are cars builded in the ASEAN exempted from the import duty tax but not from the excise tax because the later is a sort of sale tax.

I agree using port duty to describe the tax on a car was incorrect as it is effectively a purchase tax. But even a smallish car P600,000- 1.1m is still 22%. That's still a big mark- up

Where are you folks getting the numbers for the duty?  I have read that used cars get taxed with import duties of 20 to 30% PLUS a tax on the cubic inches of the motor averaging about 10% PLUS a 12% V.A.T.   I have also read that new cars can be purchased and imported but I cannot find numbers on exactly what the tax is on a new car.  Any links?
