The direct links to All Historical Data articles are below.

Thanks to Michael Belmonte, I am now able to share with you Philippines Historical Data for the last 25 years. After hitting a high of 162,000 units in 1996, car sales in the Philippines were hit full frontal by the financial crisis and had to wait until 2007 to pass the 100,000 mark again. The Filipino market is fascinating in the way models virtually unknown anywhere else are top sellers here.

1998 Mitsubishi Adventure

For example, the Toyota Tamaraw FX was #2 in 1995 and 1997, the Toyota Revo topped the ranking for 6 consecutive years between 1998 and 2004, peaking at 15.3% share in 1999 and passing the relay to the Toyota Innova in 2005. Mitsubishi has been the 2nd best-selling brand in the Philippines for the last 15 years (except in 1998 when it ranked #1): the Mitsubishi Adventure launched in 1998, ranked 2nd in 2000 and 2001 and is still in the Top 10 nowadays…

Toyota Revo

The Isuzu Crosswind peaked at #2 as well in 2002 and has been one of the Top 10 best-selling vehicles in the Philippines for the last 10 years… Other successful (albeit more familiar) models in the country over the last 15 years include the Toyota Corolla, Vios & Fortuner, the Honda Civic, City & CR-V, the Mitsubishi Lancer and Nissan Sentra.
