La Association of Automotive Dealers of the Argentine Republic (ACARA) reported that the number of patented vehicles during August 2021 amounted to 31.167 units, which represents a rise in 1,8% year-on-year, since in August 2020 they had registered 30.629 units.

In this way, in the eight accumulated months of the year, 274.906 units, this is a 28,2% more than in the same period of 2020, in which they had registered 214.518.

Toyota Hilux“As we have been observing in recent months, August continued with this trend of high demand that has not been satisfied because the supply is restricted by the shortage of vehicles. A situation that, as it continues, is already impacting the forecasts for the end of the year, today we see a market close to 385.000 cars, 40.000 units below what we thought ", he claimed Ricardo Salome, president of ACARA

“The second half of the year will continue with a scarce supply. For this reason, we request that, while addressing the macroeconomic issues that should prevail, that a greater liberalization of imports be contemplated. It is a number of dollars that are not significant, which would make a sector that is a great provider of employment in the entire value chain grow very noticeably, close to 180.000 direct jobs and 530.000 direct and indirect jobs, we are a dynamic sector from other industries in the country ”, added the manager.

“We are considering it now, since it is still possible to reach 400.000 units this year. Dealerships are increasingly out of stock because people understand that it is still an excellent time to buy cars, motorcycles and agricultural machinery. The moment of opportunity is now "he admitted.

Meanwhile Ruben Beato, Secretary General of the institution completed: “National cars have taken a greater role and of every two that are sold, one was produced here, so it is important to continue working together with factories, auto parts companies and unions to guarantee that offer, we cannot miss this opportunity. In the value chain, we are all aware that only by strengthening a consistent production can we avoid the loss of volume that puts the profitability of the sector at risk and its unintended consequences ”.
