Chrysler drops down in Mexico for 2009

by David Zatz on

Chrysler, Ford, and GM had very bad years in Mexico for 2009, with GM losing 35% of its sales, Ford losing 30%, and Chrysler losing 29%. Nissan sales fell 26%, but the gap between their fall and GM’s was enough to give Nissan the new title of Mexico Sales Leader with 156,186 sales to GM’s 138,482. Ford went down to 92,003, and Chrysler to 82,337. Volkswagen came in at #3 with 117,969.

Chrysler car and truck sales both fell, as did the Mexican market overall; total sales in Mexico fell 26%. Somewhat more cars than trucks were sold in Mexico, with Volkswagen and General Motors selling mainly cars and Chrysler and Ford selling mainly trucks. Toyota’s sales of nearly 52,000 vehicles were almost evenly split between cars and trucks.
