New light vehicle sales in Mexico endure a 14th consecutive month of year-on-year decline in May at -6.8% to 114.503 registrations, with the year-to-date volume now down 8.9% on the all-time high established at the same time last year to 561.041. Once again brand leader Nissan falls much faster than the market at -14% to a still very dominant 21.9% share vs. 22.8% so far this year. Chevrolet resists well at -1% to 16.8% share this month, almost three percentage points above its YTD level of 14.1% (-19%). Volkswagen (-22%) posts the steepest decline in the Top 20 but Toyota shines with a 3% year-on-year gain. Kia continues to markedly slow down its gains: from +37% in January to +19% in February, +13% in March, +4% in April and a very slim +0.1% in May. Sister brand Hyundai does a lot better at +12% but falls one spot to #8. Mazda (+3%) is the only other Top 10 carmaker in positive, while Ford (-11%), Honda (-9%) and Dodge (-6%) all lose ground. Further down, notice Land Rover (+144%), Volvo (+119%), Suzuki (+62%), Lamborghini (+50%), Subaru (+29%), Infiniti (+25%), Lincoln (+23%), Peugeot (+21%), Alfa Romeo (+20%), BMW (+12%) and Mitsubishi (+11%) all going against the grain and posting spectacular year-on-year improvements.

Note that similarly to GM in the US, Acura, Honda, Nissan, Renault, Seat and Volkswagen have stopped sharing models sales detail for Mexico so we have estimated their sales this month. This month the Nissan Versa (-5%) reclaims the top spot it holds year-to-date off the Chevrolet Beat despite an estimated drop, with the Chevrolet Aveo (+1%) and Nissan Pickup (-15%) following and holding onto their April ranking. The Nissan March (+13%) is back above the VW Vento (-22%) with the Honda HR-V surging 18% to break into the Mexican Top 10 for the very first time, nudging the Chevrolet Cavalier out (#11). The Honda CR-V (-50%) pays the price. We welcome the Alfa Romeo Stelvio at #197.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 215 models by clicking on the title *

The Mexican new light vehicle market has now been in decline for 13 consecutive months – after enjoying 35 consecutive months of gains – with April sales down another 4.5% to 109.276 leading to a year-to-date volume down 9.4% to 446.538 units. Brand leader Nissan falls a lot faster than the market at -18% to 20.6% share vs. 23% YTD, while Chevrolet is down by a much more reserved 3%. Volkswagen (-14%) and Toyota (-5%) are also in difficulty near the top of the leaderboard with Kia (+4%) the only brand in positive in the Top 7. Sister brand Hyundai (+40%), Ram (+19%) and Mazda (+10%) all post double-digit gains in the remainder of the Top 10 while below, Land Rover (+284%), Volvo (+97%), Suzuki (+85%), Lincoln (+75%), Jaguar (+56%), Mercedes (+44%), Jeep (+21%) and BMW (+20%) also impress. Note that similarly to GM in the US, Nissan, Renault, Seat and Volkswagen have stopped sharing models sales detail for Mexico so we have estimated their sales this month.

The Chevrolet Cavalier breaks into the Mexican Top 10 for the first time for this generation.

Over in the models ranking, the Chevrolet Beat manages its second monthly win in the past 5 months (and ever) after last December with 5.9% share, edging past the Nissan Versa for just 20 sales (estimated figure). The Aveo (+14%) makes it two Chevrolets on the podium, a performance normally reserved to Nissan. The Nissan Pickup (-19%) and VW Vento (-22%) tumble down and round up the Top 5. Excellent performance of the Kia Rio up 12% to #8 while the Chevrolet Cavalier breaks into the Mexican Top 10 for the first time for this generation. Notice also the Honda HR-V (+26%), Mazda CX-3 (+43%) and VW Tiguan (+270%) posting spectacular gains inside the Top 30.

Mexico March 2018: Chevrolet Beat back up to #2 in market down 13.4%

The Chevrolet Beat is only outsold by the Nissan Versa in Mexico in March.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 217 models by clicking on the title *

After a relative respite in February (-7.2%), the Mexican market returns to double-digit declines for the third time in the past 4 months at -13.4% to 118.611 units, leading to a Q1 volume down 10.8% to 337.262. For the second straight month, the top three most popular carmaker in the country fall faster than the market: Nissan drops 24% to 24% share, Chevrolet is down 18% to 15.9% which is actually 3.5 percentage points above its YTD level of 12.4% and enables the brand to reclaim the #2 YTD spot off Volkswagen, itself down 25% to 10.9% at #3. In the Top 10, Hyundai (+13%), Kia (+13%), Honda (+4%), Mazda (+2%) and Renault (+0.1%) all manage a year-on-year gain while outside, in actual fact there are more growing brands than declining ones, compensating for the heavy losses of the top-sellers. Land Rover (+224%), Jaguar (+82%), Volvo (+58%), Suzuki (+57%), Lamborghini (+50%), Lincoln (+45%), Jeep (+36%), Smart (+21%), BMW (+14%), Ferrari (+14%), Porsche (+13%), Mini (+12%) and Buick (+11%) all defy the market conditions by posting double-digit gains.

The Chevrolet Cavalier breaks into the Mexican Top 20 for the 2nd time, hitting a record #16.

Model-wise, the Nissan Versa (+5%) remains the best-seller, while the Chevrolet Beat returns to the #2 spot it held last November with 5.9% share, now ranking #3 YTD. The Nissan Pickup (-14%) and Chevrolet Aveo (-23%) get each knocked down one spot to #3 and #4 respectively, with the Nissan March (-12%), VW Vento (-35%), Jetta (-14%), Nissan Sentra (-30%) and Honda CR-V (-28%) camp on their February position. Among them only one nameplate gets a year-on-year uplift: the Kia Rio (+4%). Below, notice the Kia Sportage (+18%), Honda HR-V (+28%) and City (+20%) while among newcomers the Chevrolet Cavalier is up a whopping 38 spots on February to a record #16, the Hyundai Accent is up 3 to #22 and the Honda BR-V up 64 on its inaugural month to break into the Mexican Top 50 for its 2nd month on sales at #48.

The Mexican new car market slows down its fall in February at -7.2% to 109.495 units vs. -17.5% in December and -11.4% in January. The year-to-date tally is down 9.4% to 241.254 registrations after two months. The Top 3 best-selling carmakers all fall frankly faster than the market: Nissan is down 15%, Chevrolet down 21% and Volkswagen down 24%. Bar Dodge (-25%) and Ford (-4%), the remainder of the Top 10 is in positive territory, starting with Toyota (+0.2%) in 4th place. Hyundai (+21%), Kia (+19%), Mazda (+15%) and Honda (+14%) all post impressive double-digit gains. Further down the ranking, Isuzu (+145%), Smart (+118%), Jaguar (+93%), Land Rover (+85%), Jeep (+54%), Lamborghini (+50%), Suzuki (+42%), Lincoln (+25%), Mercedes (+22%), BMW (+20%), Infiniti (+16%), Ferrari (+14%), Porsche (+12%) and Mini (+11%) also impress.

Model-wise, the Nissan Versa (+9%) and Pickup (-12%) remain in the lead while the Chevrolet Aveo (-14%) rallies up three spots on last month to #3 and the all-new Chevrolet Beat is up 6 to #4. The Nissan March (-5%) rounds up the Top 5 ahead of the VW Vento (-24%) and Jetta (-26%). Both the Kia Rio (+129%) and Honda CR-V (+122%) more than double their sales year-on-year at the tail end of the Top 10. The Hyundai Accent (#25), Chevrolet Cavalier (#44) are the other recent launches to rank inside the Top 50 just as the Toyota C-HR is up 19 spots on its inaugural month to #78. In February we welcome the Honda BR-V at #112.

Mexico January 2018: Kia hits record share, Chevy sinks 53% in market down 11.4%

Kia sales in Mexico are up 37% to reach a record 7.3% market share.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 210 models by clicking on the title *

The Mexican new car market continues to contract in this start of 2018 with January sales down 11.4% year-on-year, marking an 8th consecutive month of decline and 2nd consecutive double-digit drop after losing 17.5% in December. Nissan loses less ground than the market at -8%, resulting in a market share improved to 24.2%, almost double the #2 Volkswagen down 15%. Toyota goes against the grain with a fantastic 15% surge to 8.5% share, followed by Honda (-2%) while for Chevrolet it’s a month to forget with deliveries down an abysmal 53% on January 2017 to a paltry 7.7% share vs. 16.1% over the Full Year 2017. Kia continues to impress with a 37% year-on-year gain leading to a new record share at 7.3%, smashing its previous best of 6.4% established last September. Sister brand Hyundai also shines with a 17% uplift while Mazda improves its share to 4.3% thanks to deliveries down just 1%. Outside the Top 10, Jaguar (+500%), Land Rover (+265%), Lamborghini (+50%), Suzuki (+36%), BMW (+35%), Jeep (+30%), Isuzu (+29%), Peugeot (+18%), Volvo (+15%), Ferrari (+14%), Audi (+8%), Mini (+8%), Porsche (+8%), Buick (+3%) and Lincoln (+3%) all defy the surrounding gloom to post positive results.

The Toyota C-HR lands directly inside the Mexican Top 100. 

After being toppled by the Chevrolet Beat in December, the Nissan Versa – the best-selling vehicle in Mexico for the past two consecutive years – reclaims its throne with sales actually up 16% to 7% share, with the Japanese carmaker placing four nameplates in the Top 5 this month: the Pickup (-7%) at #2, the March (-3%) at #4 and the Sentra (-10%) at #5. The odd one out is the VW Vento (-7%) rounding up the podium. Below the Chevrolet Aveo down 52% to #6, the Kia Rio shoots up 132% year-on-year to land at a record 7th place, beating its previous best of #8 established last September. The Honda CR-V (+116%) also impresses at #9 while the Chevrolet Beat drops 9 spots on December to #10 but remains by far the best-selling recent launch (<12 months) above the Hyundai Accent (#28), Renault Captur (#65) and Chevrolet Cavalier (#67). This month we welcome the Toyota C-HR at #97 and the Peugeot 5008 at #160.

After two record years in a row lifting the market from 1.135.000 units in 2014 to 1.604.000 in 2016, new car sales in Mexico take a breather in 2017 with sales down 4.6% to 1.530.624 units, by far the 2nd highest annual score in history. In a year marred by tariff uncertainty on exports to the U.S, the lifeline of the Mexican car industry, the market showed first signs of plateauing back in April when it posted its first year-on-year decline in 35 months after recording 27 consecutive record months. Then Mexico switched to negative for good in June, culminating in a painful 17.5% fall in December. The Top 3 best-selling carmakers all lose share: Nissan is down 9% to 23.8%, Chevrolet down 16% to 16.1% and Volkswagen down 6% to 12.6%. Toyota (+0.5%) and Honda (+0.3%) manage stable sales and round up the Top 5.

Kia broke its monthly volume record 9 times in Mexico in 2017… 

But the success story of the year is once again Korean: launched in Mexico in July 2015, Kia surges 49% to end its second full year in market only 1.500 units below Honda in 6th place but ranking 5th four times. Kia broke its monthly volume record 9 times this year including the last 4 months of 2017, lifting it from 6.030 (December 2016) to 8.080 (December 2017), while its record share went from 4.5% (September 2016) to 6.4% (September 2017). Not to be outdone, sister brand Hyundai – launched here in May 2014 – is up 28% to #9 and also aligns the records, bettering its all-time monthly volume 8 times including the last 5 months of the year to lift it from 3.527 (November 2016) to 5.219 (December 2017) while its record share jumped from 2.6% (April 2016) to 3.5% (September 2017). Other remarkable gains are posted by Fiat (+33%), Lamborghini (+29%), Suzuki (+26%), Isuzu (+23%), Mercedes (+22%), Smart (+20%), Subaru (+18%) and Peugeot (+13%).

…while Hyundai did so 8 times.

Over in the models ranking, the Nissan Versa scores a second consecutive year in pole position with sales up 3% to 6.1% share, remaining unchallenged during most of the year with 10 monthly wins over the first 11 months (the Chevrolet Spark led in March). However December brought a surprise with the Chevrolet Beat, launched in June, taking the lead with an outstanding 12.027 sales and 7.6% share vs. just 9.695 and 6.1% for the Versa. The Beat is by far the most popular new launch in Mexico in 2017, landing directly at #9 with over 40.000 sales. The Nissan Pickup (+9%) gains two spots to #2, toppling the Chevrolet Aveo (-18%) and Spark (-37%) while the VW Vento (+0.3%) and Nissan March (-3%) progress to #4 and #5 respectively.

Launched in June, the Chevrolet Beat snapped the top spot in December. 

The Kia Rio, now locally produced, is up a fantastic 140% to become the first ever Korean nameplate to break into the annual Mexican Top 10 at #10. Notice also the Honda CR-V up 45% to #11 thanks to the new generation, the Nissan Kicks up to #18 for its first full year of sales, the Toyota Hilux up 40% to #24, the Kia Forte up 37% to #25 and the Hyundai Creta up to #32 for its first full year. Five additional 2017 all-new launches make it to the Top 100: the Hyundai Accent (#59), Chevrolet Cavalier (#80), Jeep Renegade (#84), Suzuki Ignis (#86) and Renault Captur (#87).

Mexico November 2017: Nissan Versa & Chevy Beat shine, market down 8.5%

The Nissan Versa hits a new share record in Mexico this month.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 210 All-models by clicking on the title *

The Mexican new light vehicle market has now well and truly entered a period of recession with November marking the 7th month of decline out of the past eight at -8.5% to 141.150 units and leading to a year-to-date volume down 2.8% to 1.371.713. Once again the top four best-selling carmakers fall faster than the market with Nissan (-13%), Chevrolet (-22%), Volkswagen (-10%) and Toyota (-12%) topping the charts. And once again the heroes of the month are the recently-launched sister Korean brands. Kia soars 43% to 7.815 sales and 5.5% share, breaking its all-time volume record for the 9th time in the past 12 months. Meanwhile Hyundai surges 42% to 5.011 units and 3.5% share, the carmaker’s first month above 5.000 sales and the 7th time in the past 12 months it breaks its volume record. Other great performers include Suzuki (+51%), Lamborghini (+50%), Mercedes (+39%), Subaru (+37%), Land Rover (+31%), Isuzu (+26%), Peugeot (+26%), Audi (+23%), Fiat (+17%), Volvo (+12%) and Ferrari (+11%).

The Chevrolet Beat steps up to 2nd place overall for the first time. 

Model-wise, the Nissan Versa goes against the grain with a 17% year-on-year gain to 7.8% share, a new record for the nameplate which also posts its second best-ever monthly volume at 11.062 units. In second place, the Chevrolet Beat takes its blockbuster success to the next level with new ranking, volume and share records, and is up to #9 year-to-date. The Nissan Pickup drops 22% to a distant #3 but remains at #2 year-to-date. The Chevrolet Aveo (-51%), VW Jetta (-50%), Nissan March (-19%) and VW Vento (-16%) all struggle inside the Top 10 whereas the Kia Rio (+229%) and Toyota Yaris (+4%) shine. Among other recent launches, the Hyundai Accent (#24), Chevrolet Cavalier (#38) and Suzuki Ignis (#54) shoot up.

The Mexican new light vehicle market continues to backtrack, posting a sixth month of decline in the past seven at -9.5% in October to 124.353 registrations, pulling the year-to-date volume down 2.1% to 1.230.266 units. The Top four best-selling carmakers fall faster than the market: Nissan plunges 23% to 21.9% share, Chevrolet is down 11% to 17.3%, Volkswagen down 10% to 12.6% and Toyota also down 10% to 6.2%. In contrast, Mazda (+2%) and Renault (+4%) gain ground but it’s the recently launched Korean sister brands that post the most spectacular performances this month. Kia is up 26% to hit its highest ever monthly volume at 7.603, beating the previous high of 7.503 posted last month. It is the 8th time Kia breaks its monthly volume record in Mexico in the past 12 months. Hyundai also breaks its volume record for the third consecutive month at 4.303 (previous best: 4.100 last month) and hits its highest ever market share at 3.5%, also hit last month. It is the 7th time Hyundai breaks its all-time volume record in the past 12 months. Further down, a handful of brands also have a great month, including Mitsubishi (+32%), GMC (+35%), Mercedes (+37%), Suzuki (+40%), Jeep (+42%), Subaru (+45%) and Isuzu (+53%).

New volume record for Kia in Mexico: the 8th in the past 12 months.

Over in the models ranking, the Nissan Versa (-22%) and Pickup (-19%) remain on top despite heavy falls, while the Chevrolet Beat establishes itself on the podium, now only 15 sales off the #2 overall spot, General Motors has hit the bullseye with the Beat in Mexico. The VW Vento (-23%) and Chevrolet Aveo (-25%) round up the Top 5 but are both in freefall, while the Nissan March (+7%) and most strikingly the Kia Rio (+82%) are the only two nameplates in positive in the Top 10. Further down, the Nissan Kicks (+113%), VW Gol (+121%), VW Tiguan (+1028%) and Hyundai Creta (+220%) impress while the Hyundai Accent (#30), Chevrolet Cavalier (#46), Jeep Renegade (#65), Suzuki Ignis (#75), Fiat Mobi (#77) and Renault Captur (#83) top recent launches (<12 months). In October we welcome the Kia Stinger (#177) and Hyundai Ioniq (#193) in the Mexican charts.

Mexico September 2017: Market now in negative year-to-date

Kia is oblivious to the overall gloom with sales up 27% to a record 6.4% share in Mexico.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 215 All-models by clicking on the title *

This is it: with a fifth year-on-year decline in the past six months in September at -11.5% to 116.368 units, the Mexican new car market swerves into negative territory year-to-date at -1.1% to 1.106.935 sales, still the 2nd best volume in history at this stage of the year. The Top three best-selling carmakers all drop faster than the market, indicating a fragmentation of sales in Mexico: Nissan is down 16% to 24.2% share, Chevrolet down 25% to 14.8% and Volkswagen down 14% to 12.7%. Toyota resists better at -8% in 4th place but the hero of the month is once again new local producer Kia, up a whopping 27% on September 2016 to hit its largest ever monthly volume at 7.503 units (only 8 below Toyota) and largest ever market share at 6.4%. Sister company Hyundai is the only other carmaker in positive in the Top 10 at +24%. Further down, Renault (+6%), Ram (+7%), Mercedes (+7%), Mitsubishi (+7%), Fiat (+8%), Jeep (+22%), Peugeot (+29%) and Suzuki (+39%) shine.

First podium ranking for the Chevrolet Beat.

In the models ranking, the Nissan Versa (-9%) and Pickup (-4%) remain in the lead and fall slightly slower than the market but the best performance atop the charts is delivered by the Chevrolet Beat, up one spot on August to land on the Mexican podium for the very first time with a record 5.235 sales and 4.5% share. Unfortunately, the Chevrolet Aveo is hit full frontal by this success (-46%). The other great performer in the Top 10 is the Kia Rio more than doubling its sales year-on-year (+105%) to land at a best-ever #8 with a record 2.3% share but its volume isn’t a new record. Second consecutive month inside the Top 10 for the Ford Figo (-10%), record #12 ranking for the Nissan Kicks (also hit last March), excellent second month of sales for the Hyundai Accent up 13 spots to #21 while the Chevrolet Cavalier is up 11 to #70.

Mexico August 2017: Chevy Beat up to #4, Accent and Cavalier land

The Chevrolet Beat soars to 4th place for its third month in market.

The sky is getting darker by the month in Mexico with August sales posting the fourth year-on-year decline in the past five months at -6.5% to 125.343 units. The year-to-date remains in positive territory for less than 3.000 sales at +0.3% to a record 990.567 but should shift into negative by the time September results are known if the trend continues as per the past few months. Market leader Nissan doubles the market decline at -13% to 23.1% share vs. 24.3% so far this year while Chevrolet does even worse at -16% to 15.9% which is actually higher than its YTD level of 15.8%. Volkswagen is in line with the rest of the podium at -14% to 12.2% but below, Toyota (-3%), Honda (+1%) and most strikingly Kia, soaring 30%, manage to improve their market shares year-on-year. Mazda (+2%), Hyundai (+23%) and Dodge (+6%) complete the Top 10 with market-defying improvements. Beyond, BMW (+10%), Jeep (+11%), Ferrari (+11%), Mini (+12%), Ram (+15%), Smart (+21%), Suzuki (+34%), Subaru (+40%) and Fiat (+78%) all brilliantly post double-digit gains.

The Hyundai Accent has kicked off local production in Mexico.

Model-wise, the Nissan Versa (+13%) and Pickup (+16%) both go against the grain with double-digit gains whereas the Chevrolet Aveo falls 20% in third place. The all-new Chevrolet Beat, now helped with the launch of a notchback variant, shoots up another 5 spots to #4 overall after breaking into the Mexican Top 10 for the first time just last month. The Ford Figo is up 19% to break into the Top 10 for the 2nd time ever after last January to hit a record 9th place. The locally-produced Kia Rio is down one rank to #11 but up 104%, the Nissan Kicks is up another two spots on last month to #14, the VW Tiguan is up 11-fold on its August 2016 score to #26, the Toyota Hilux is up 77%, the Mazda CX-5 up 81%, the Renault Duster up 65% and the Honda Odyssey up 192%. There are two newcomers in the Mexican sales charts this month: the Hyundai Accent has kicked off local production at the Kia plant in Pesqueria, Nuevo Leon, reaching 1.044 sales for its first month in market (#34) and the China-made Chevrolet Cavalier has landed at #81 with 296 units sold in August.
