Further information

Motor vehicles exist in many forms and fulfil a variety of functions. Vehicles typically function in similar ways and although their material make-up may vary, it is their engine size/type and weight that distinguishes them from each other. In the United Nations WEBBUY system, operated by UNOPS, over 15 vehicle categories exist. These include the most popular categories; sedans, pick-ups, SUVs and light duty vehicles. Armoured vehicles are also amongst the most popular types of vehicles purchased, however, these and motorcycles do not fall under the scope of this guideline.
