Another depressing month for new car sales in Venezuela, down 80% year-on-year to 1,681 registrations which brings the year-to-date total to 11,502 units, down 84% on 2013, all this due to the political and social trouble that is affecting the country at the moment. Toyota emerges as the most popular brand this month with 25% share ahead of Ford at 22.1%, Civetchi (the local brand for Dongfeng) at 20.5%, General Motors at 16.3% and Mitsubishi at 14.4%, the 5 above manufacturer being pretty much the only ones to have kept doing business over the period in the country. The Civetchi Pick-up (aka Dongfeng Utah) is the best-selling model in Venezuela in August at 20.3% share ahead of the Toyota Corolla at 13.9%, Mitsubishi Montero Sport at 9% and Ford F250 at 7.1%.
