Latin America: COVID-19 impact on light vehicle sales 2020, by country

Motor vehicle sales have significantly decreased in Latin America since the COVID-19 outbreak. For example, approximately 51.5 thousand light vehicles were sold in Brazil in April 2020, representing a decrease of around 76.8 percent in comparison to the sales volume reported during the same month a year earlier. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic on March 12 2020. After this announcement, most Latin American countries began implementing movement restrictions, which partly explains the drop in the level of economic activity in the region.
