Cuba lifts decades-old ban on new car sales

Residents are now allowed to purchase new vehicles, but sky-high prices keep them out of reach for many.

For the first time in more than 50 years, people in Cuba can freely buy new cars after a law limiting such sales was abolished on Friday.

However, markups as high as 400 percent are preventing many people from taking advantage of the new market.
