In case you missed it, the year-end sales tally from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines (CAMPI) is in. Things are looking good for the local auto industry, with member brands having sold a total of 352,596 units last year.
That total is good for 31.3% growth compared to 2021—a figure that, according to CAMPI president Rommel Gutierrez, is a sign of “ a better year ahead for the auto industry.”
Not surprisingly, Toyota is the best-selling local car brand of 2022. The Japanese carmaker sold a whopping 174,106 units last year, which is good for 49.38% of the local automotive industry’s market share.
