Market Trend Year to Date
Despite all that is happening this year, the Cuban vehicles market remained quite stable during the year. In fact, it has even been growing, since 167 units were sold in September (+25.6%), leading Year to Date sales still at a 1.9% increase with 1.224 units sold.
Brand-wise, Peugeot remained the leader, holding 21.7% market share, followed by BYD with 16.5% and Kia with 15.1%.
Medium-Term Market Trend
As no retail operations are yet allowed in the country, the state corporation CIMEX is the only in charge of selling vehicles.  New vehicles are sold for private customers applying an 800% tax and a 1.500% tax for used vehicles.
Just a few units (less than 10% of total) are privately purchased and the rest is split by State companies – including public taxis – and rental for tourists.
The 2018 full-year sales has been revised to a level of 4.500 units, which represents the record level and a marginal increase from the previous years.
In 2019 the market plummeted severely, losing more than 65% sales, with only 1.600 units registered as the huge level of duties are imposed over import which gave to the cars sold in this Caribbean market the record of the highest price in the World, with a mid-size car costing more than a 100 square meter flat.
