Colombia August. The annual score still under the VAT hike effect

Colombian Auto Market Chevrolet-Spark_Activ-2017

Colombian Auto Market in Q3 is almost stable losing in August those gained in July. On annual basis, the market is still under the negative effect of the recent 3 points hike in the Value Added Tax. In August the Renault Sandero has taken the leadership.

Colombian economy accelerated only marginally in Q2 from the tepid growth recorded in Q1 as still-weak domestic demand once again prevented a definitive expansion. In fact, the uptick in total consumption was mostly propped up by a jump in government stimulus, which acted as crucial support for the economy as household spending again failed to fully recover. That said, bright spots in Q2 included a rebound in fixed investment—which is expected to contribute positively to growth this year after a dismal 2016—and another moderation in the contraction of exports as the mining sector further adjusted to low oil prices.

Colombian automotive industry arrived at this 2017 following an almost disappointing 2016 performance, the worse out of last 6 years, with new fears mainly due to the impact on vehicles demand of the 3 points of VAT increased by the new fiscal reform.

And indeed the year is passing with bad news. According to data released by ANDI, the Colombian Associations of Car Manufacturers, the domestic market was stable in the Q1 before to decline 6% in the Q2 ending the first half with 113.056, down 3.4%.

Q3 is almost stable considering that the +6.2% in July (18.625 sales) was compensated by the -6.7% in August (20.91 sales) with year to date figures at 152.582, down 2.8%

In this period, market leader was Chevrolet with 33.610 sales (-11.5%) followed by Renault with 30.907 (-2.3%) and Nissan, advanced in third, with 13.385 units (+23.5%).

Behind, Kia with 12.912 units (-20.3%) followed by Mazda with 11.585 (+0.6%), Ford with 9.916 (+1.0%), Volkswagen with 6.092 (+26.1%), Toyota with 5.533 (+14.3%) and Hyundai with 5.102 units (-5.3%).

At model wise, in August a new leader has taken the crown and was the Renault Sandero with 12.400 sales (+69.4%) ahead of the Chevrolet Spark with 10.101 units (-9.2%) and the Chevrolet Sail with 9.360 (-6.8%).
