After chip crisis mess up the automotive market, automakers are now going through the recovery process. And this was very clear in the 0-km car sales ranking in August, which presented a relative change in relation to the other months. THE Volkswagen, for example, advanced in the table and surpassed the runner-up Toyota, which debuted at No. 2 in July. However, the Fiat remains in the lead dominating the podium.
Being part of the Stellantis Group, which occupied six positions among the best-selling cars, the Italian brand kept the trio Strada, Argo and Furnishings intact in the first positions. However, the Jeep, which is also part of Stellantis, has been surprising more and more. O Compass, which was in 7th place, rose to 4th position in the rankings in August.
