Chinese buses in Ivory Coast

Chinese buses and coaches started appearing in larger numbers in Ivory Coast after 2010. Their price permits companies to regularly buy new vehicles and thus boost their image. Different brands and models are imported, from 8 meter midimodels to three-axle 13 meter vehicles. Both front- and rear-engine buses can be found.

Brands noted are Yutong, King Long, Zhong Tong Bus, Golden Dragon, Foton and Sunlong. Small buses are still rare, only one Foton small truck with bus body work was seen. Also interesting is that a number of  Shacman and Sinotruk trucks recieved local bus body work, creating buses that can be used on bad roads.
