    CAMPI President Atty. Rommel Gutierrez

    According to CAMPI President Atty. Rommel Gutierrez, the 37,259 vehicle sales in December “was the highest monthly performance recorded,” which contributed to achieving its 2022 full year sales.

    “With this, CAMPI-TMA sales alone has exceeded the total industry sales forecast of 336,000 units – strong evidence that the industry has recovered from the impact of the pandemic and other external challenges,” he said.

    He also noted that the 37,000-level figure was experienced back in 2017, which is giving the industry renewed optimism for a better year ahead.

     “The continued expansion of the economy, creation of new jobs and opportunities is just as important as ensuring that no pandemic disruption occurs anew this year. Nonetheless, the industry will continue to capitalize on the growing market demand for new motor vehicles,” Gutierrez added.

    Maintaining the position as the country’s best-selling automotive brand is Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP), securing an almost 50-percent share and selling 174,106 from January-December 2022.

    Trailing TMP is Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation, which held a little over 15 percent share of the market with 53,211 units sales performance for the whole 2022.

    Ford Motor Philippines is at the third spot with its 24,710 examples retailed.

    In fourth and fifth places are the local distributors for Nissan and Suzuki, selling 21,222 and 19,942 examples, respectively.
