Mexico Car Sales Jan-Jun 2017

All that's lacking is the tumble weed

For June sales were up 2.9% but YTD down 5.3%. Nissan is the most popular brand in the country and has continuously been so since 2009. It has consistently been around the 25% share for all of this decade. GM has taken a hit this year, with its market share down 13% as shown in the chart below.

The disappointing part is the way FCA Mexico is now included as one entity, including Mitsubishi. I don't know what is achieved other than making the company look bigger. In due course, I will find out the sales by brand but not for this list. Cadillac is included in GM for 2017.

JLR has been doing it tough lately in Mexico. I have no idea why but I assume its something to do with the importer, as the company is generally doing extremely well in virtually all other nations.

The chart below shows a % symbol that represents market share. The +/- column is increase or decrease based on the first six month's market share of 2017 against the full 2016 year.
