After posting a gargantuan 37.8% rise in April – the largest year-on-year gain this decade, new car sales in Brazil hit the brakes in May, edging up just 2.5% to 194.922 units. This is the 13th consecutive year-on-year gain for the Brazilian market but the lowest rate since July 2017 (+2.3%). The year-to-date volume however remains in double-digit growth at +16.2% to 932.173 units, the highest score at this stage of the year since 2015 (1.065.252). Chevrolet holds onto the brands pole position but drops 4% year-on-year to 16.6% share just as Volkswagen surges 21% to 15.2% and Fiat follows the market at +3% to 13.7%. Ford (-2%), Hyundai (-4%) and Toyota (-6%) all fall but gain one rank on April just as Renault (-7%) drops 3 to #7. Just below Honda down a steep 16%, Jeep soars 35% to post the first five-digit Brazilian monthly sales figure in its history at 10.003. Volvo (+66%), Kia (+60%), Nissan (+45%), BMW (+41%), JAC (+29%), Land Rover (+23%) and Chery (+20%) also impress.

The JAC T40 is the b best-selling Chinese nameplate in Brazil in May.

Model-wise, the Chevrolet Onix is stable at 7.7% share and approaches three full years on top, having ranked #1 in Brazil each month without interruption since August 2015 – that’s 34 consecutive months. The Hyundai HB20 (-5%) and Ford Ka (-18%) hold onto their YTD ranking despite steep falls, as does the VW Gol (-30%) up 6 spots on April. The VW Polo is back up two spots on last month to comfortably top all recent launches at #5 overall. Below the Fiat Strada (+21%) best-selling pickup as usual, the Jeep Compass gains 25% to break all its records at one: ranking at #7 (previous best: #8 in April 2017), volume at 5.559 (pb 5.121 last December) and share at 2.9% (pb 2.59% last January). The Fiat Toro is up 13% to #9, the Fiat Argo up one spot on last month to #11, the Jeep Renegade is up 53% and the VW Virtus up 4 ranks to #14 while the Fiat Cronos is stuck at #23. The Nissan Kicks (+97%), Chevrolet Tracker (+64%), VW Amarok (+58%) and Nissan Versa (+50%) also shine. The JAC T40 is the best-selling Chinese car at #84 and the Toyota Yaris sedan makes its first appearance at #150.
