Venezuela Vehicle Sales By Brand : 2015

Never mind a car, how about some provisions?
This one almost slipped my notice. Not hard mind you as the sales plunge to ever lower depths. Nearly 500,000 in 2007 down to 17,500. Another 25% was wiped off the sales in 2015, just when I thought it couldn't get worse. Actually I have no idea when rock bottom is hit. This is all vehicles we are talking here, not passenger cars alone.

The ecomomy is in a mess, 95% reliant on oil for foreign income. It was bad when oil was fetching a good price, it's worse now that oil is plunging. GM hold on to the lead, while Mitsubishi manage to climb up the rankings. I think the car makers still there are only there to be in a good position when better timers come. A sad situation.
