Vehicle registrations in January totaled 161.6 thousand units. The number represented a 13% increase compared to the result recorded in January of last year. The data comes from Renavam (National Register of Motor Vehicles). They were disclosed by Fenabrave (National Federation of Motor Vehicle Distribution) on February 5th.

Of the total licensed in the month, 118.5 thousand units corresponded to car registrations, 14% more than the volume observed in January 2023.

Among the best-selling models of the month, the leadership went to the Hyundai HB20, with 7.4 thousand units. Following are Volkswagen Polo, Chevrolet Onix, Hyundai Creta, and Fiat Argo.

Among light commercial models, the ranking is led by the Fiat Strada pickup, with 8 thousand registrations in January. Following are the Volkswagen Saveiro, Toyota Hilux, Fiat Toro, and Chevrolet Montana models.

Just to illustrate, the historical peak occurred in January of the year 2014, with 446 thousand units of registered vehicles. However, Renavam considers the current result a good number considering the history of recent years.

“In general, there is an improvement in the retail environment for vehicle distribution, with the evolution of employment indices, consecutive falls in official interest rates, and, mainly, due to a greater flow of credit in various segments.” The comment is from José Maurício Andreta Jr, president of the entity for the Automotive Business electronic magazine.
