Chocolate Cars Are a Popular Choice For Holidays and Special Occasions


Chocolate cars, also known as ‘chocolate trucks,” refer to U.S. cars imported into Mexico without paying the necessary import fees, which has become an increasing problem along Mexico’s southern border in border states such as Tijuana, where many individuals purchase cars for under $5,000 including fake California DMV-style tags and paperwork.

Mexico has taken steps to curb chocolate car imports. President Andres Lopez Obrador signed a decree requiring owners of such vehicles to register them with Mexican authorities at a once-off fee.

Mexico announced on Wednesday it will extend for three months its program that allows owners of illegally imported foreign vehicles to register them legally in Mexico for a fee. The move marks an important step toward combatting so-called “chocolate cars,” or vehicles purchased in the U.S. but never registered, driving on streets in Tijuana and other border towns without ever paying licensing fees in Mexico.

However, while registering a chocolate car will cost significantly less than importing one into the country due to their one-time registration fee of approximately $125, registering will still not give them legal standing, and the government plans on conducting emissions inspections, which could potentially lead to confiscation.

Starting in June 2023, all vehicles that start with a letter in their serial numbers will become eligible to register with REPUVE, regardless of the year of manufacture. Owners must present copies of their title of ownership from their country of origin as well as official identification to register these vehicles; REPUVE will review these documents to make sure the cars comply with their regulations and ensure road quality in Mexico is improved by doing this. The government hopes this process will encourage more people to regularize chocolate cars and improve highways across Mexico.

Product Packaging

Product packaging design that appeals to all five senses is critical for turning customer interest in chocolate into a desire to purchase. Whether selling high-end luxury brand chocolates or simply boxes of sweet treats, having an appealing package design can make all the difference between customers buying or not buying. Remember that design should reflect what matters to them most instead of forcing it onto them; this way, you’re more likely to convert their attention into action quickly.

Chocolate packages should be beautiful and thoughtful, reflecting the quality of the products inside while reflecting the personality and persona of a brand. Socio Design included a foil pattern reminiscent of Malaysia and Borneo that works seamlessly with its existing framing mechanism while creating an original aesthetic.

Other chocolate brands use more traditional approaches when designing their packaging designs, often employing color, shape, and texture elements. One such example is ACH Vegan Chocolate’s use of hand-drawn illustrations that give an authentic country of origin feel to create an eye-catching package design and set it apart from competitors.

If you have seen a car on the streets that appears to have been stolen from America and sent down into Mexico, chances are it was taken out for theft by thieves in America before landing there, where it has become known as a “chocolate.” Popular among poor Mexican families who cannot afford their vehicles, an estimated one-and-a-half million chocolate cars are estimated in Mexico today! Emissions inspections are set to commence later this year by authorities and potentially lead to an end to stolen vehicle proliferations.

An impressive chocolate car can make the perfect thank-you present or is an unforgettable treat after taking a test drive. Morrie’s Luxury Auto Bentley recently chose L’More Chocolat as their exclusive gift provider to commemorate the unveiling of their newest Bentley model, and L’More provided personalized chocolate cars as part of this memorable event!

Product Colors

Whether it is an SUV, minivan, hatchback, or sedan, here are the colors that sell best. White remains popular for midsize passenger vehicles, while buyers may also choose candy-colored blues and reds. Regarding compact cars, buyers tend to get creative when making color selection decisions; white remains dominant, while others might prefer pastel or bright hues like orange or yellow as alternatives.

By June 2023, more than one million vehicles of foreign origin that illegally entered Mexico can be regularized and registered as official road vehicles by paying a registration fee to use on federal highways and roads. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has granted owners of these cars permission to pay this registration fee and register them formally as roadworthy.

Regularizing cars in Mexico involves using a system that requires owners to present several documents, including their vehicle registration certificate, official identification document, and proof of address document. To reduce delays, the Mexican government advises people make appointments before attending regularization appointments.

Morrie’s Luxury Auto Bentley wanted to share the excitement surrounding the unveiling of their latest Bentley model with clients and prospects, so they turned to L’More Chocolat for help. Our gift program consisted of logo bars, truffles, and more explicitly tailored to their brand image to generate sales and new leads.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador recently signed into law a one-time fee allowing people to register “chocolate cars,” often stolen in California before being sold or driven south where residents such as Tijuana do not pay registration fees; saving thousands in registration fees as they go through Tijuana without registration fees being assessed against these vehicles on the roads. Before this law change, these “chocolate cars” would be impounded whenever caught driving illegally on Mexican roads.

Over one million chocolate cars have been regularized and registered since their introduction into circulation on our nation’s streets and avenues, with Tamaulipas leading in this effort with 128,000 registered vehicles that have generated $135 million in revenues for road repair efforts and plowing operations.

To register their chocolate car legally in Mexico, its owner must satisfy several criteria. First and foremost, their vehicle must have been lawfully purchased within its country of origin, no earlier than 2017; not electric or luxury; not too old either – then it will receive a link to make an appointment at REPUVE and receive new plates issued as quickly as possible (cost: approximately $125) This step is particularly significant as it helps decrease illegally imported vehicles and facilitate emissions inspections which will become mandatory starting this summer.
