MG is among the 10 best-selling carmakers in Mexico this month.
New light vehicle sales in Mexico contain their loss somewhat in October at -9.1% year-on-year to 76,640 units, however it must be kept in mind that October 2020 was already down -21.3% on the year prior. The year-to-date tally is now up 11.5% to 834,486. Both Nissan (-14.3%) and Volkswagen (-14.6%) fall faster than the market at the top of the brands ranking, yet Volkswagen holds a strong 10.8% share vs. 9.9% so far this year. Kia (-4.9%) improves its share to 9.2%, its second highest ever below the 9.3% it hit just last month, and climbs to a record third place overall for the second time in the past 3 months. Chevrolet (-43.3%) is still in crisis but steps up one spot on last month to #4, toppling Toyota (-4.6%). Mazda (-0.3%) is almost stable and reaches 5.8% share vs. 4.5% year-to-date, while Ford (+10.3%) is actually up year-on-year at #7 as is Suzuki (+5.1%) at #9. The best performance of the month is delivered by Chinese carmaker MG, celebrating one year in the Mexican market by breaking into the Top 10 at #10 with 2.9% share vs. 1.4% year-to-date.

The Aveo (+74.4%) is the only Chevrolet in great shape this month, advancing one spot on September to #2 overall, while the Nissan Pickup (-29.9%) is up two ranks to #3 despite a drastic fall. The VW Vento (+38.6%) stays in 4th and displays a fantastic year-on-year uptick. The Kia Forte (+88.3%), Nissan Sentra (+45.1%), Kia Rio (+9.8%) and Mazda3 (+7.9%) also progress in the remainder of the Top 10, while the Chevrolet Captiva is back to #10 for the second time in the past four months.
