The Philippine auto industry continues to improve its sales performance in 2022. For April, Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines (CAMPI) data shows a total of 25,149 vehicles sold—a 40.9% improvement compared to the same period last year.
While overall, April’s numbers paint 2022 in a positive light, the figure is actually a 15.3% dip from March when the industry saw 29,685 units sold. So far, this update brings the total vehicle sales count for 2022 to 99,093 units.
Not surprisingly, Toyota remains the country’s most popular brand. The Japanese carmaker sold 13,715 vehicles last month. That’s good for a 54.53% market share, although the total figure is down 9.2% compared to Toyota sales in March 2022 (15,110 units).
