Sales rose 25.1% in September compared to the same month last year, with 194,000 registrations. From January to September, 1.5 million units were sold, down 4.7% from the same period in 2021.

For the president of Anfavea, Márcio de Lima Leite, despite the drop in sales compared to last year, the results are positive. Among the indicators he highlights is the average sale of 9,200 vehicles per day in September. “The daily average encourages us a lot, it shows a constant growth of the market”, he emphasized.


Sales of automobiles and light commercial vehicles were up 29.1% in September compared to the same month last year, with 156,400 units registered. In the first three quarters of the year, the segment’s commercialization has retraction of 6.8%, with 1.21 million license plates.

According to Márcio Leite, the sector still suffers from difficulties in obtaining components, such as semiconductors. In his assessment, this situation should only be normalized in the second half of 2023. Even with the difficulties, the president of Anfavea expects manufacturers to be able to sell 2.14 million vehicles by the end of the year. “[Isso tem sido possível devido a] creativity of our industrial and logistics areas, they actually had less sleep, the effort is greater, but we have managed to achieve a satisfactory result”, he pointed out.


Exports rose 20.7% in September, with the sale of 28,500 vehicles abroad. From January to September, the increase is 31.2% compared to the same period in 2021, with exports of 363,500 units. Despite the positive result compared to last year, sales abroad still face problems, compared to August, the result of September represents a drop of 39%.

According to Leite, exports have been suffering from delays in the maritime transport system. “This happens due to the resumption itself, until we have an arrangement of the supply chain and global logistics, we still have some specific situations that end up having an impact in a few months”, he said.

In addition, Brazilian automakers have, according to him, struggled with bureaucratic restrictions in Argentina, the main destination for Brazilian vehicles sold to other countries. “In fact, we can see a reduction in exports to Argentina, mainly due to the restriction on the release of export licenses”, he pointed out.


The number of people employed in the vehicle industry grew 1.6% in September compared to the same period last year, totaling 104,600 workers.
