Continuously driving the sales for the group for the full first half of the year is the commercial vehicle segment, with a total of 90,361 vehicles delivered to customers, leading to a 68.06 percent market share. The said number posted a 47.8-percent difference over the 61,129 vehicles sold for the same period last year.

The passenger car segment — which has a 31.94-percent share of the market — rolled out 42,406 units to clients, showing a 77.3-percent jump over 23,912 car sales for the same period in 2020.

CAMPI President Rommel Gutierrez explained that the sales performance is a “reflection of the industry coping up with the pandemic.

"This is a respite amid the less buoyant consumer outlook for big-ticket items for the second quarter of this year according to a government survey,” Gutierrez was quoted as saying.
