Devalveringen fell as a fool in business of new car sales: shot prices 80% and since then sales have not ceased to fall. Therefore, the sector today collects a stock of 260,000 units: the highest level recently. From the Association of Automotive Trade (ACARA), they assure that 2018 was profitable for the last 10 years.
Sales of cars that recorded a first half of significant increases began to fall in July and reduced the prospects for 2018 to less than 800,000 units. The cumulative for the first eleven months 2018 is 774 571 units, that is, a falls by 9.2% compared with the same period in 2017.
"It was clear that this year we had negative profitability and there were closures of mouth and retailers, we can not index our stocks and until stocks are normalized it will be difficult to get out of that situation," explains the new Director General of ACARA, Carlos Movio.
Ricardo Salomé, Treasurer of the Unit, said that "there are about 20 dealers who have closed in the last few months or closed." Earlier this month, without going further, Ford recalled license from six retailers. they have sold little and nothing since devaluation, they are also restructuring, which means that 15,000 people in the industry today are in a weak work situation, I do not say they have been dismissed, the idea is never to postpone people who took us years to work out and work out, "he said.
Another issue that has retailers in excitement is for campaigns. They ensure that the cars have "some very high bonuses". "In that sense, it's the best time to buy a zero kilometer", ironizan in ACARA. "It costs a lot to leave this discount program (discounts) because people validate a price," explains Movio. However, the stock accumulated by the fall in sales during the second part of the year could start liquidating in February 2019, calculated the CEO.
"In January, we will get a clearer picture of how the market will be presented," as 12% of the annual sales are usually made in the month, explains the company's director.
According to the Secretary-General of ACARA, Rubén Beato, the single market will remain in 2019 600,000 units, which represents a 25% drop over the 800,000 units that will be patented this year"Among other expectations, ACARA estimated that of total sales, approximately 160,000 would be made through savings plans.
