Did you buy a brand-new car to kick off 2022? Then give yourself a pat on the back, because you just helped push the local auto industry to surpass its first-quarter tally from 2021.

Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) sales figures from the first quarter of 2022 shows a slight improvement compared to the same period the year prior: 74,754 vehicles sold from January to March, or a 6.3% growth.

Commercial vehicles led the way with 56,431 units sold, followed by light commercial vehicles (LCV) and passenger cars with 45,629 and 18,323 units sold, respectively. The rest of the total is comprised of Asian utility vehicles (AUV), light trucks, and trucks and buses. While the total reflects minor growth overall, passenger car sales fell by 16.2%.
