Malawi New Vehicles Market in 2016 grew modestly, hitting the second annual increase in a row. Toyota is the leader while Ford dropped down leaving the second place to the rising star Nissan.

Malawi economy maintained a weak growth amid low agricultural production and the elevated inflation in 2016, which declined after the maize harvest season before rising again in the second half of the year. A recovery to growth is possible in 2017, although this will depend on continued fiscal restraint and an effective response to the challenges resulting from a second year of high levels of food insecurity.

After the soaring of sales with over 2,000 units in 2010 and 2011, the domestic vehicles market kept a fickle trend in the following years, declining in double-digits. Also the performance in the first half of the 2016 was disappointing, however the sector recovered during the second semester, ending the year with a moderate increase.

Indeed, according to data released by the Association of Car Importers, the total vehicles sold had been 1.800, up 2.5%.

Toyota kept the first step of the podium despite losing 11.4% at 814 units. Nissan scored the best increase of the 2016 with 244 sales (+35.6%), overtaking Ford with 179 (-20.4%).

The Toyota Hilux confirmed the leadership among models with 360 units (-5.5%) ahead of the Toyota Land Cruiser with 199 (-12.3%) and the Ford Ranger with 162 (-22.1%).
