Vehicles: Sales in Panama Up 20%
Thursday, June 17, 2021
Between the first four-month period of 2020 and the same period of 2021, vehicle sales in the local market increased by 20%, a rise that is largely explained by the behavior of marketed units of cars and SUVs.
The Office of the General Comptroller of the Republic reported that between April 2020 and the same month of 2021, the number of new units registered in the country increased 2,634%, going from 117 to 3,199. This abnormal variation is a consequence of the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
