As GM Authority covered previously, Chevy was the best-selling car brand in Mexico last month, ousting Nissan for the first time in recent history. Leading the charge in Chevy’s recent sales run for the Mexican market was the Chevy Tracker crossover, which sold 2,621 units total, an impressive 238.19-percent increase in sales year-over-year.
Additional Chevy sales leaders in the Mexican market last month included the Chevy Aveo, which sold 2,237 units, the Chevy Captiva, which sold 2,080 units, the Chevy Onix, which sold 1,583 units, and the Chevy Groove, which sold 1,390 units. Sales for the Chevy brand as a whole increased 56.32 year-over-year percent to 13,017 units.

The Chevy Tracker’s impressive sales performance in July of 2022 follows equally impressive sales performance from the month prior, with the crossover selling 2,156 units in June of 2022, an increase of 97.07 percent year-over-year. The Chevy Tracker’s June sales performance marked the first time a utility model managed to become GM Mexico’s best-selling vehicle, a designation typically reserved for vehicles like the Chevy Aveo and Chevy Beat.
The Chevy Tracker for the Mexican market is built at the GM São Caetano do Sul plant in Brazil. Meanwhile, several other GM vehicles are built in China and sold in Mexico, including the Chevy Groove, Chevy Captiva, Chevy Cavalier, Chevy Sail, Chevy S10 Max pickup, and Chevy Tornado. The Chevy Onix is another example, as GM ended Onix production at the GM San Luis Potosí plant earlier this year, only to import new units for sale in Mexico.
Although high demand for the crossover was previously met with insufficient inventory as a result of production issues stemming from the global microchip shortage and COVID-19 pandemic, the latest sales figures indicate that dealer inventory has significantly improved.
