Chile October. Sales up 19%, Chery up 90%

Chilean Vehicles Market 2017 Nissan-Versa_Note-2017

Chilean Vehicles Market kept the pace in October improving sales by 19%. Hyundai has taken leadership over Chevrolet and Kia on top of the brands ranking but the fastest increase last month was reported by the Chinese Chery, up 90%.

The sun is beginning to shine once more on Chile’s economy, following a limp H1. Prices for copper, the country’s key export, hit a new multi-year high last month thanks to tight supply and buoyant demand from China. This should help fill government coffers and boost the external sector. In addition, business confidence rose further in October, while the labor market remains fairly healthy, with the unemployment rate in Q3 falling from a year ago.

Chilean Vehicles Market hits the all time record in the 2013 when sales reached 378.000 units, before to rapidly decline, hit by the economic crisis, at 282.232 in the 2014. Then a positive path started and is still in place with full year 2017 projected at 340.000 units with a positive outlook for the 2018 as well.
