AVID Sales Up 22 Percent in January 2014

The Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors (AVID) welcomed the New Year with a remarkable 22% increase during the first month of 2014 compared to the inaugural month a year ago.

January’s performance was buoyed by equally impressive showings from Passenger Car (PC) and Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segments, with both managing to notch up healthy 22% increases.

On the PC front, noteworthy performances came from CATS and Hyundai, while a resurgent Chevrolet also contributed to the segment’s healthy 1,679 unit sales tally for the month. LCV numbers, meanwhile, amounted to 1,512 units through a combined effort from all brands, with CATS and Chevrolet standing out in both categories.
