Argentinian vehicles sector keeps rebounding. Renault shines

Argentinian vehicles sector

Argentinian vehicles sector keeps rebounding albeit the country entered in recession in Q1 2016 and the second quarter should have been disappointing as well. Renault was leader in August.

Market Outlook

Argentina’s economic growth remains at a standstill as the transition into a market-oriented economic model is proving difficult. The economy fell into recession in Q1 and most likely had another disappointing performance in Q2. Exports contracted at a double-digit rate in June mainly due to the deep recession in Brazil—Argentina’s main trading partner.

However, the stability given by the new government has reassured consumers and thanks to the low-level achieved after the sharp fall reported in the previous two years, the domestic vehicles market keeps rebounding.

According to data released by the ACARA and the ADEFA, the Argentinian Associations of car manufacturers and dealers, in July and in August the vehicles sold had been respectively 61.203 and 68.836 units, up 6.4% and 24.6%.

Year to date the total vehicles sales have been 455.521 units, up 9.8% compared to the same period of the previous year.

Competitive Arena

In August, Renault was the new best performer reporting 10.987 vehicles sold (+38.7%) followed by Volkswagen with 10.498 (+1.1%), Chevrolet with 9.612 (+13.4%), Ford with 9.079 (+8.4%) and Fiat with 7.019 units (+22.2%).

Great performances posted by Toyota with 7.011 sales (+14.3%), Peugeot with 6.280 (+103.0%) and Citroen with 2.301 (+43.4%).
