In May 2022, sedan sales increased YoY but decreased MoM; the Volkswagen Virtus is the newest market entrant.
In May 2022, sedan sales are expected to increase year over year. Given the unrest in the market a year ago, this was to be expected. Government restrictions were enacted to stop the development of Covid-19 infections, which were spreading rapidly in sections of 2021. As a result, firms were forced to work against the odds, and auto sales were severely limited.
In May 2022, total sedan sales were 11,872 vehicles. Sales increased nearly twofold year over year to 33,297 units. The increase in volume was 21,425 units. From 39,364 units sold the previous month to 39,364 units sold the next month. The volume loss was 6,67 units, representing a 15.41% decrease.
