Mexico new cars record year at a 20% growing speed.

Mexico new cars record year Volkswagen-Amarok-2017

Mexico new cars record year at a 20% growing speed. Country’s short-term growth prospects appear bleak as low oil prices and a weak peso persist. Toyota and Mitsubishi grew up.

Market Outlook

Aggregate demand data for Mexico’s Q2 GDP showed that the economy was extremely dependent on private consumption in the first half of the year. This suggests that any shock to household spending, such as rising inflation or a sharp weakening of the peso, could derail its healthy growth performance as it is unlikely that other GDP components will improve any time soon.

Record after record the automotive industry keeps growing fast both in sales and production scoring outstanding performance both in August and September.

Indeed, according to data released by the A.M.I.A., the Association of Mexican Automotive Industry, August and September scored respectively a sharp double-digit up 19.6% and 19.0%, for a total of 134.054 and 132.454 sales.

Year to date September the registrations improved 18.6% at 1.120.181 units.
