As a result, Strada ended the 1st quarter of 2021 with 28,869 registered units, against 28,759 for Onix. It is the first time in history that a utility like this has taken the lead in sales of 0 km models. In the last decades, the primacy of the post was divided by compact, more accessible and popular hatches.
The fact, however, was due to a ‘perfect storm’ that caused General Motors to reduce the production of its national vehicles in the face of a shortage of components, at the same time that the Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting the market at levels between automakers.
This phenomenon brought down sales of Onix and Onix Plus (another that shrank), which before the health crisis had more than 17 thousand and 8 thousand cars, respectively. Last month, the hatchback had 7,933 units sold while the sedan was no more than 5,450 vehicles.
Third in the month of March
Another model that took advantage of Onix’s moment of weakness was its rival HB20. What CAR showed this Wednesday, Hyundai had already surpassed Chevrolet, which ended up being confirmed at the end of the month. The HB20 obtained 8,012 plates, 79 units more than the Onix.
Three cars arrived at the end of the 1st quarter very close, the Jeep Renegade, the Gol and the Onix Plus, all with just over 19 thousand license plates. Fiat, the general market leader, placed other models in the Top 10, Toro, Argo and Mobi while the T-Cross SUV closed the list.
Among the 20 best-selling vehicles of 2021, SUVs dominated the ranking with eight models present. The compact hatches, in turn, occupied another seven positions in the accumulated.
