This represents the lowest figure in the last 12 months.
Journalist Manuel Luna wrote in laestrella.com.pa: "Luxury brands were affected such as Mercedes Benz where 23 cars were sold in January and only 15 were sold in February, while Lexus went from 20 to 8 cars sold. Toyota is still the brand with the highest demand in the country with a total of 674 cars sold in February, followed by Nissan which managed to sell 620 units."
According to the DEI, there have been 100 vehicles registered per day since February, when it used to be 200.
Javier Turcos, from the tax authority(DEI), indicated to la Prensa of Honduras: "We are registering 50 private and 50 agency vehicles daily. It used to be twice that amount. The downturn has been noticed since February."
In the first four months of the year 18,000 new cars were sold, 10% more than in the same period in 2013.
With the sale of 4,797 new vehicles between January and April 2014, Toyota ranks as the best-selling car brand in the country. In second place is Hyundai, with 3,245 units and in in third place Kia, with 2,917 vehicles sold.
