Car and Motorcycle Production and Sales

Updated : May 2020

Below you can notice that total domestic sales of cars, including passengers cars had picket up a bit during 2018 and 2019, after a few years of lesser sales. 2020 will be different with the Corona virus having effects on the local economy and the world economy. Vehicle exports seem to hover between 1 million and 1.2 million units for quite a few years now.

When looking at total local sales and passenger cars sales, you can see that more pick-up trucks are actually sold than passenger cars, suggesting that most cars are used for work-related activities, not just commuter traffic.
