Americas Car/Vehicle Production By Nation : 2016-17


I last did this region's production for the 2014-15 years (vehicles by clicking here, and cars by clicking here). For this instalment, I decided to double the value and put them in one article....You're welcome.

Cars: This excludes light trucks and SUVs so is a shrinking segment. For the past two years, the numbers have dropped 7%. Even a surge in Brazil was not enough, as it was nullified with an accelerated fall in the USA.

The x2 count is where numbers are also counted elsewhere. If the content is equally divided between countries, then it is shared. Thankfully, that isn't a major factor, just 0.5% of the total.

Car Production
16 17 Brand Units '17 Share +/- Units '16 Share +/-
1 1 USA 3,033,216 36.9% -23% 3,916,584 44.4% -6%
3 2 Brazil 2,269,468 27.6% 28% 1,778,464 20.2% -12%
2 3 Mexico 1,900,029 23.1% -5% 1,993,178 22.6% 1%
4 4 Canada 749,458 9.1% -7% 803,230 9.1% -10%
5 5 Argentina 203,700 2.5% -16% 241,315 2.7% -22%
6 6 Colombia 73,904 0.9% -5% 77,946 0.9% 2%
7 7 Venezuela 852 0.0% 0% 849 0.0% -91%

Total 8,230,627 -7% 8,811,566 -7%
x2 count -39,950 0.5% 22% -32,790 0.4% -13%

Vehicles: With all the SUVs and pick up trucks, it seems more relevant as each year passes. The only issue is that Argentina stopped including heavy-duty trucks in 2016. Numerically it makes little difference but I mentioned it anyway. 

As with cars, the decrease is the same for the past two years, in this case, a minuscule -0.7%. The USA was down but Mexico and Brazil did well. Call me paranoid, but Ecuador's figures look suspiciously like an estimate. The US still managed to exceed 50% of the total (54%).

Vehicle Production
