Although they do not differ much from the estimates released in July, the numbers confirm the trend observed in recent months: the performance of the Brazilian domestic market is better than expected, but the production curves and, especially exports, point down. In the case of foreign sales, the trend is to close the year with a lower volume than the one registered in 2017 - knowing that there was a record number of vehicle exports last year. Figures released by Anfavea on Thursday, 4, point to a decrease of 8.6% in shipments, or 700 thousand units, compared to the 766 thousand units of the last projection, released in July.
