This tax will not directly affect the prices of these cars, but it will raise the overall cost of purchasing them. It will also help the government collect more taxes from those with higher purchasing power, and allow them to join the tax net.

The government wants to maintain the current progress of the auto industry and encourage the industry to fully indigenize production of cars and parts.
