Help, I would like to import my Toyota Rav 4 EV (and my house charger) but for the life of me I cannot navigate the government website to find anything regarding cost/inspection but all I can find is details on diesel and gasoline cars :( I can understand they are interested in the suspension, wheels, brakes and lights but how are they going to assess things like emission and engine state when it is just a battery and an electic motor? What about import tax, I found the details for hybrid vehicles but nothing on all-electric (other than a Cushman golf cart)? I read somewhere there are less than 100 EVs in CR. With the zero emission goal you would think the govt would want to make this type of import easier and certainly cheaper - or at least have some sort of policy?
Hi! I've found an older truck in Costa Rica I'd really like to export from CR to the US. I've read a lot about the rules for importing a car into the US, but I think it'll still be worth it for me to hire someone to assist in the process. Does anyone out there have suggestions for a good company to work with? Have any of you done this before? I can find lots of info about importing cars to CR, but none about exporting them. Thanks!
