What Cars Can You Buy In Nepal And USA For The Same Price? Here’s What We Found

By: Saisha Dixit  | | 4 mins May 22, 2021

We’re all aware of the fact that cars in Nepal are stupidly expensive than in other countries. But have you wondered just how much of a difference there is?


Well, today we’ve compared what kind of cars one can buy with the same price in Nepal and the USA, and the difference is staggering.


All the prices are in Nepali rupees.


Also hint: Nepal has a whopping 288% tax rate on imported vehicles.


Mercedes Benz s500 vs. Rolls Royce Phantom 2020


Mercedes Benz s500 is no wonder a sleek and stylish ride, but that fact that we could buy a Rolls Royce with the same amount in the USA does sting.



Ranger Rover Vogue vs. Rolls Royce Cullinan


Ranger Rover Vogue is one of Nepal’s most exclusive cars. But yet again, a Rolls Royce is a Rolls Royce. Not to mention the fact Rolls Royce Cullinan, the most expensive SUV you can buy in the states, is two crores cheaper than Range Rover Vogue too.



Toyota Land Cruiser 200 vs. 2021 Bentley Bentayga Speed


Just the design should tell you why this one is painful. We’re buying a Toyota for 3.23 crores when we could buy a fricking Bentley for less.



Tesla Model X Long Range Plus vs. McLaren 620R


Now the Tesla Model X is no wonder a fantastic car, but it does cost only around Rs. 97,50,492 in the USA. For what it takes to buy a Model X here, one could comfortably buy a McLaren 620R in the states.



Range Rover Evoque vs. Lamborghini Urus


Is Range Rover Evoque one of Nepal’s finest? Yes. Does it compare to a Lamborghini Urus? Hell no.



Hyundai Kona EV 150 KW vs. Tesla Model S Long Range Plus


There is something deeply saddening about the realization that one can buy a Tesla Model S Long Range Plus in the states at even less than what a Hyundai Kona EV costs here.



Honda Civic 1.6 VTI CVT vs. Jaguar F Type


A Jaguar F Type is available for 71 lakhs there. And it’s what Nepalis are paying for a Honda civic here.



Mahindra Scorpio S11 vs. 2021 MBW X5


The price for a BMW X5 goes above 4 crores in Nepal. But in the states you can buy it for the same amount it would take to buy a Mahindra Scorpio S11 in Nepal. Which is 69 lakhs.



Ford EcoSport 1.5l Titanium M/T vs. Lexus NX


The latest in the series of Ford Ecosport costs less than half of what it costs here in Nepal. And here we are, paying 49 lakhs for it when we could be buying a Lexus NX for the same amount in another part of the world.



Swift 2020 vs. Mustang EcoBoost Fastback 


A Suzuki swift is equivalent (more expensive actually) to a Mustang. Think about that one for a second.



Hyundai Santro Magna AMT Petrol vs. 2020 Honda Civic


A stylish Honda civic is cheaper than a Hyundai Santro. That’s just depressing.



If you don’t wanna buy cars in Nepal after this list, we don’t blame you. The difference in prices does make it feel like cars in Nepal are nothing more than scams. But unfortunately, this is a cross we all have to bear for a while.
