Shot of the American currency is the main factor for the result, says Abeifa
Sales of imported vehicles decreased 16% in the quarter, about 6,023 units, compared to 2020. The surge in the dollar is the main factor for the result, in the evaluation of Brazilian Association of Importers and Manufacturers of Vehicles. However, there are problems in production due to the lack of parts in the global automotive chain. The president of Abeifa, João Oliveira, assesses the mood of the brands in relation to the Brazilian market.
“I see these brands that are overly committed to the Brazil project they have and these plants are important within their strategy. I even see a movement against them trying to find more and more expansion formats and making their local production feasible. ” Abeifa has fifteen affiliated brands and four produce in Brazil. They had an increase of 54% over February and 37% over March 2020.
