“January gives us a hint that maybe this 2023 can do it have a little more logic As for the sale of used cars. This means: more sale of km 0, more sale of useda parallelism that is very difficult to break,” said the manager.

Is that last year, while new car registrations reached 407,532 units, 6.8% more that in 2021; second-hand sales decreased by 7.04%, to 1,570,784 units.

Farm-to-table dealerships have endorsed this situation: they said that if they had more vehicles to sell, the figures for 2022 would have been “significantly higher”.
