Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, the Venezuelan new car market plunges further down into oblivion in the wake on the continuing political turmoil and economic recession that is plaguing the country: down 26% to just 17.585 registrations. For comparison, the annual 2015 figure is similar to the sales level reached in July and August 2013 alone…, 87% below 2012’s annual score (130.533) and a devastating 96.5% below 2007’s record high 491.899 deliveries. Only eight manufacturers have remained in the market, with five of them selling over 1.000 units: Chevrolet (-11%) is market leader, followed by Toyota (+5%), Mitsubishi (-7%), Ford (-49%) and Dodge (+132%).
The models ranking is totally novel: the Chevrolet Silverado – the previous generation is still the one on sale here – takes the lead thanks to sales up 3-fold on 2014 to 2.405, ahead of the Toyota Fortuner (+34%), Chevrolet Aveo (+19%), Mitsubishi Canter (+92%) and Dodge Forza (+132%). Last year leader, the ZNA Rich / Civetchi Pickup, implodes down 99% to just 42 units at #29.
