The new car market in Ecuador is surprisingly down for the 2nd year in a row in 2013 at -6% to 113,812 registrations, among Latin American countries breaking annual record after annual record. And once again Chevrolet accounts for nearly every second vehicle sold in the country this year, adding up to a gargantuan 44.1% share thanks to 50,195 sales. Big changeover below: Kia (+21%) passes Hyundai (-22%) to become the #2 brand in Ecuador at 12,300 units and 10.8% above Nissan and Toyota while Mazda is up 25% but stays 6th.

Kia Rio Stylus Ecuador 2013Kia Rio Stylus

The top Chinese carmakers are a little wobbly this year: Great Wall is down 19% but remains #11, JAC is up 8% at #12 and Chery down a harsh 39% at #13, but JMC is up 98% to #20, Dongfeng up 56% to #30 and Foton up 129% to #36. Top 4 best-selling models are 100% Chevrolet like in 2012: the Sail leads the way for the 2nd time running with a round 10% share, ahead of the Aveo Family, Grand Vitara and Luv D-Max. Like in 2012 the Mazda BT-50 is the best-selling non-Chevrolet in Ecuador with sales up 23% at #5. Notice also the Kia Rio Stylus (aka 1st gen Rio) at #8, the Chevrolet D-Max at #10, Hyundai i10 at #12 and the Renault Duster above 1% share for its first full year in market.

A few days ago I called for your help to get more recent official data for some countries – and you heard my call! Thanks to Oscar I am now able to share with you 2010 data for Ecuador. Not the most recent but better than 2009… In 2010 Ecuadorian new car sales take off, up a massive 42% year-on-year to 132,172 registrations.

In the models ranking the 2003 Chevrolet Aveo Hatchback, called Aveo Activo locally, is the most popular model in Ecuador again with 10,844 sales and 8.2% share. It is followed by the Chevrolet Luv D-Max at 8,746 units and 6.6% and the Mazda BT-50 with 7,421 sales and 5.6%. If the more recent Chevrolet Grand Vitara SZ is down 1% and one spot to #4 at 5.4%, the older Chevrolet Grand Vitara is up a very healthy 39% to #5 with 6,377 sales and 4.8%.

The sedan version of the first generation Chevrolet Aveo is still on sale in Ecuador under the name Aveo Family and it comes from outside the Top 10 in 2009 to #6 this year at 5,280 units and 4%.
