CAMPI and TMA Release Top-Selling Car Companies and Models in the Philippines (Feb 2017)

Cherryl Anne Cruz

Strong car sales growth might be ending in the U.S. — but not here in the Philippines. In fact, the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) and Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA) are happy to report a record-breaking 27.8 percent year-on-year sales growth in January 2017 compared to last year. Car sales continue its upward, yet more modest performance of 7.5 percent year-on-year sales growth this February 2017 compared to February 2016.

And guess who the top-selling company is? It’s still Toyota Motor Philippines. In a joint report given by CAMPI and TMA, a total of 27,040 units have been sold this year, with Toyota selling 12,615 units this February 2017 compared to its 14,542 units last January 2017. And while the slight decrease in sales have lowered Toyota’s market share from 47.8 percent to 47.26 percent this year, the car giant isn’t budging an inch out of its number one spot anytime soon.

Next in line is Mitsubishi, followed by Isuzu, Honda, Nissan, Ford, Suzuki, Kia, Mazda, and lastly, Foton.

By the way, in case you’re wondering why Hyundai isn’t here, it’s because “unconfirmed reports” say it doesn’t release monthly sales regularly like CAMPI. Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI) President Ma. Fe Perez Agudo, who also heads the Association of Vehicles Importers and Distributors (AVID), said that Hyundai grew by 21 percent in February this year, with 2,653 units sold compared to 2,189 in February last year.
