Devaluation, inflation, rising interest rates and "old" wages are a combination that the automotive industry has not been able to overcome and manifests itself in the third consecutive decline in aggregate output.

"
On the contrary, the improvement of the exchange rate competitiveness allowed exports to be boosted by 36.2% to 26,048 units, equivalent to more than two-thirds of last month's production.
