    December 2021 sales

    Total vehicle sales for December 2021 is at 27,846. This is 5.3-percent bigger than the 26,456 units rolled out in November 2021 and nearly one-percent higher than December 2020’s 27,596 sales output.

    The PC segment retailed 8,447 units in the aforementioned month—is down by 3.8 percent in December 2020 but showed an almost three-percent rise from the November 2021’s 8,205 samples turned over to clients.

    The LCV, on the other hand, had 15,340 samples handed over to buyers, which reflected a 9.2 percent improvement from 14,043 from the preceding month and an almost 10-percent step-up from the 13,962 of December 2020.

    “Looking back at last year’s performance, the automotive industry has remained remarkably resilient with an overall growth of 20% compared with the same performance a year ago — that is no small feat indeed,” CAMPI President Atty. Rommel Gutierrez said.

    Gutierrez noted that December had recorded the highest monthly sales performance since the pandemic hit the industry in March 2020 and that the industry has also registered positive growths for four consecutive months.

    “The industry remains optimistic for a continued recovery this year from the COVID-19 pandemic downturn as progress on inoculation has provided hopes for a better outlook for the wider economy, but ‘business as usual’ is still unlikely as challenges remain at hand,” he added.
