Portugal Production : 2019/20 (By Brand)

Getting data for production is increasingly difficult. The car industry has been more open than most but it may be it is becoming more sensitive about how such information will be presented. Portugal is still still allowing us to see what's going on there and may that continue. You may not be aware that the country even has vehicle assembly. I wrote an article back in 2017 and it is worth a visit (click here)  

The VW Group is the largest assembler, making the VW T-Roc, Sharan and SEAT Alhambra. PSA chimes in with the Peugeot Partner, Citroën Berlingo and Opel/Vauxhall Combo. Fuso do the Canter  and finally, Toyota with the Land Cruiser. It has also entered a strategic alliance with Caetano in making buses.  

Data source: ACAP. 

Passenger cars were up an impressive 20%  in 2019 but understandably were down 25% in 2020. 

Commercial vehicle production followed the same trend as pcs. PSA is the mainstay of this area which now includes Opel/Vauxhall too.
