Venezuela: 1997-2017 Historical Data now available

The Chevrolet Aveo has been #1 in Venezuela each year since 2005.

Historical Data covering the past two decades is now available for Venezuela, and over most of the period a Chevrolet has been the best-seller: the Corsa in 1997 and from 2002 to 2004, the Aveo from 2005 to 2013 and the Silverado in 2015. Extremely rare feat outside of China, the ZNA Rich takes the lead in 2014 with the Ford Explorer leader in 2016 and the Toyota Hilux tops in 2017. From 2014 onwards, the economic crisis the country is going through wreaks havoc on sales with the Venezuelan market down from a record high of 492.000 units in 2007 to just 2.500 in 2017… If you have official data prior to 1997 and between 1998 and 2001 please make sure to get in touch by commenting on this article.
