In 2022, 1,570,784 used cars were sold and in December only 116,147 units were sold. If compared to November 2022 (127,178 vehicles), the drop was 8.67%.
Príncipe explained that the market was “very complicated”, and warned that worrying data has been observed in recent months. “Always, when the sale of 0km cars grows, that of used cars also rises. Lately this has not happened, but the opposite,” said the manager. He said that “according to a survey carried out by our institution at the country level, as soon as the year ended, the final data shows that the used car has been far from the possibility of people.”
To this is added that “year-round access to credit was never up to what the sector needed.” “We are facing a new market, we will have to adapt to work to rebuild it. We know what it cost us to recover our companies and we also know that others have remained along the way. We will put all our energy to return to traditional volumes,” said Príncipe .
