Brazil: 1954-2009 Historical Data now available

1969 Chevrolet Opala: among Brazilian best sellers throughout the seventies

I have now completed a review of the Brazilian market going back to 1954.

Witness the domination of the VW Beetle (called Fusca in Brazil) from 1954 through the sixties and seventies… Explore the 1980’s ‘malaise’ with the Fiat 147 and Chevrolet Monza best sellers… Go through the 23-year reign of the VW Gol, only interrupted by the Fiat Uno in 1994 but challenged by two other Fiats: the Tipo in 1995 and the Palio since 1996.

From 1962 onwards, detailed data is available: yearly Top 15, 20 or 50 and monthly passenger cars Top 50 from 2002. Many thanks to Marcelo de Vasconcellos for your guidance and expertise!
