Still only brands data for now for the Philippines, hopefully I will be able to share models data again shortly for this country. And as detailed in my special Manila Auto Show Report, the Pinoy car market is on fire this year. Building on an all-time record in 2012, new car sales are up 11% year-on-year in March to 18,141 registrations, bringing the Q1 2013 total to a record 49,558 units, up a mammoth 24% on Q1 2012. At this rate, the new car market in the Philippines could end 2013 above 225,000 units!
