La Association of Automotive Dealers of the Argentine Republic (ACARA) reported that the number of patented vehicles during February 2021 amounted to 30.141 units, which represents a rise in 8,9% year-on-year, since in February 2021 they had registered 27.679 units.
In this way, in the two accumulated months of the year, 79.866 units, this is a 9,9% more than in the same period of 2020, in which 72.651 had been registered.
“February confirms the good start of the year, which is actually a continuation of the growth started back in June of the 2020 complex, where our sector was one of the first to start the recovery. This rise of 8,9%% above the pre-pandemic February, is also the result of the shared effort of the dealers, which we are accompanying with advice and personalized attention to a demanding clientele, but also from the factories, which have been increasing supply vehicular", said Ricardo Salome, president of ACARA.
"The challenge is to continue insisting that, through stimuli, we can complete a good year 2021. Today the conformation of the offer, but also of the demand, requires more and more national cars, that also opens a great opportunity to go to a greater integration and promotion of national production. If we grow, many related industries grow, at a time when the economy needs more dynamic activities than ever so as not to stop the virtuous circle that seems to have started ", Agregó.
For its part, Ruben Beato, Secretary General of the institution completed: “From ACARA we continue to lead a very broad working table with a focus on the domestic market, adding ideas and proposals. The dealers, the factories and the union are not going to miss the opportunity to accompany an activity in time and form that is beginning to take off ”.
