The Chevrolet Tracker is #1 in Chile in June.

The Chilean new light vehicle market slows down its growth in June at +2% to 36,206 registrations, compared to +39% in April and +11% in May. This brings the year-to-date tally up 24.4% to 222,453 units. Passenger Cars drop -17.9% to 9,294 for the month but are up 5% to 56,924 year-to-date. SUVs gain 20% in June to 16,415 and 33.9% YTD to 99,006, Pickups are up 6.3% to 7,061 this month and 38.2% YTD to 41.404 and vans drop -10.8% to 3,436 in June yet are up 20.4% YTD to 25,119.

Chevrolet (+0.2%) reclaims the #1 spot it holds year-to-date with 10.1% share, distancing Toyota (+71%) surging year-on-year but down one spot on May to #2. It now also ranks #2 year-to-date, displacing Chery. MG (+14.7%) remains in third place and accelerates to #6 year-to-date. It distances Hyundai (+9.2%) and Chery (+21.8%) both outpacing the market. Below Suzuki (-5.7%) in difficulty, Changan (+161.2%) lodges the largest year-on-year gain in the Top 25 and ranks #7. Volkswagen (+21%) also shines in the remainder of the Top 10. Below, JMC (+141.5%), Dongfeng (+33.9%), Ram (+32.5%) and Maxus (+14.2%) impress. As a whole, Chinese carmakers are up 22.5% to 31.1% share vs. 25.9% a year ago.

Over in the models aisle, the Chevrolet Tracker (+341.3%) is up 4-fold year-on-year to sign its first ever win in Chile with 3.1% share, showing how fragmented this market is. The Chery Tiggo 2 (+0.3%) is back up three spots on May to #2 and holds onto the YTD top spot, only 110 units above the Maxus T60 (+28.7%) down to #3 after two months in pole position but still threatening in the YTD #1 battle. The Toyota Hilux (+50.1%) and Mitsubishi L200 (-11.3%) make it three pickups in the Top 5. Excellent scores for the Toyota RAV4 (+38.7%) and Suzuki Baleno (+23.6%) in the remainder of the Top 10, while the new MG ZX (a facelifted ZS) repeats inside the Top 10 at #10.
