Sedan sales in May 2022 reported at YoY growth and MoM decline; Volkswagen Virtus newest market entrant
Sedan sales in May 2022 are reported at YoY growth. This was but expected given the unsettled market situation a year earlier. With Covid-19 infections spreading at a quick pace in parts of 2021, government curbs were imposed to arrest the spread. This meant businesses were working against the odds, and resultantly, auto sales were definitely contained.
Total sedan sales in May 2022 stood at 11,872 units. YoY sales grew almost threefold at 33,297 units. Volume gain stood at 21,425 units. MoM sales fell from 39,364 units. Volume loss stood at 6,67 units at 15.41 percent decline.
