Croatia car brands

Croatia is not really a big haven for carmakers. However, it gave birth to several very interesting car brands, the foremost of which is Rimac, a prominent sports car producer. It is home to a number of car companies of regional renown.

TAZ Neretva

TAZ Neretva is a van produced by the Croatian TAZ. This company has been active since 1930 and until 2000. Neretva is their most popular creation – a microbus, used extensively in former Yugoslav countries. Other TAZ vehicles are rather similar. Their logo is a black circular form with a shield image in the middle. There are two blocky extensions on the sides, where they placed the letter ‘T’ and ‘Z’ respectively. The shield proper is occupied by a bigger letter ‘A’.
