Simply extraordinary. This is how we can describe 2015 for the Mexican new car market. September marks the 9th consecutive monthly record at 111.330 registrations, up a stunning 25% year-on-year: absolute slam dunk for Mexican car sales this year. The year-to-date total now stands at an all-time high 944.907 units, u 20% on 2014 and well on track for a record year. For once market leader Nissan improves slightly slower than the market at +17%, resulting in a lower market share vs. a year ago at 25.3% – still a world best for the Japanese carmaker. General Motors compensates for a surprisingly weak August score (-14%) by gaining 33% in September to 20.160 units and 18.1% share, distancing Volkswagen (+17%). FCA Mexico (+33% – note this includes Mitsubishi), Ford (+35%), Hyundai (+68%), Mercedes (+31%) and Lincoln (+88%) also outpace the market, while newcomer Kia improves again for its third month in market to 1.711 sales and 1.5% share at #12.
Nissan Chasis Largo
In the models ranking, the Nissan Versa manages to hold onto the pole position it snapped for the very first time last month, thanks to 4.982 sales and 4.5% share vs. 4.791 and 4.3% for the Chevrolet Aveo which remains in the year-to-date lead at 51.531 deliveries vs. 43.524. The VW Nuevo Jetta remains on the podium and above 4% share for the fourth consecutive month with a sparkling 4.517 sales – it ranks 6th so far in 2015, the VW Vento is back up 3 spots to #4, the Nissan March posts another solid performance at #5, up 48% so far in 2015, and the Nissan Chasis Largo shoots up to #8 with 3.685 units and 3.3% share vs. 2.1% year-to-date.
