The

Association of Automotive Dealers

(ACARA) reported that

32,338

zero kilometer vehicles

were patented in July

, which represents a rise of

6.1%

year-on-year

compared to

July of last year.

In this way, in the accumulated seven months of the year,

243,068 units

were patented

,

32.2%

more than in the same period of 2020.

"The July numbers reflect that the market is experiencing a noticeable increase in demand that has not been fully satisfied since the supply is restricted due to the shortage of vehicles," said the head of ACARA,

Ricardo Salomé

. Four of the five best-selling models last month were locally manufactured, in keeping with the government's policy of "stepping on" unit imports through

the Integrated Import Monitoring System

(SIMI). 

"The situation seems important to mention because it is already impacting the year-end forecasts, today we see a market close to

400,000 vehicles,

" added the businessman.

At the beginning of the year, ACARA itself had forecast sales of

440,000 units

for all of 2021.

"Anyway, we are going into an active second half of the year, the exchange rate situation in recent weeks has made people go out and buy because they know that it

is a good time to buy a vehicle

and take advantage of the opportunities that are generated by

the gap. existing, "

added Salomé

.

It should be noted that the list price of vehicles (both finished units and auto parts for their manufacture) is established from the official dollar.

So when the gap between different dollars shoots up, more buyers appear willing to sell their dollars on the parallel market to buy a unit.

"Beyond these issues, we continue to work from the value chain with national authorities on substantive measures that allow greater predictability in a strategic sector such as the automotive industry in which we employ more than 75,000 people," he concluded. Salome.

The best-selling models in July, once again, were led by the Fiat Cronos, the Toyota Hilux, the Volkswagen Gol Trend, the Ford Ranger and the Peugeot 208. Except for the Gol, the other models are locally made.
