Argentina Car/LCV Sales : Jan-Jun 2020


It must be a challenge selling cars in Argentina. High import duty means opening a factory there to have any chance of having a meaningful presence. Then the economy seems to be synchronised to work in harmony with a yo-yo. Trying to keep production as even as possible would be difficult. Importers build up sales, only to see them decimated.

In that environment, sales for June were +1%  -39% YTD. Rather than see a chart awash with yellow, I looked at market share to show that some brands did manage to increase their slice. The list has a '+/- Diff' column that compares six months of 2020 sales with a complete 2019.

On that basis, VW was +7.3% and Fiat +16.6%. Nice for them, while Toyota and Ford didn't do as well. Because they don't make cars here, Hyundai and Kia only managed to achieve half of one percent share.
