Vietnam auto sales reached 29,797 units last month, the highest since April, indicating demand recovery after prolonged social distancing.

This is the second monthly sales rise in a row after a chain of five dropping months from April to August when the fourth Covid-19 wave hit, according to a report by Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers Association (VAMA).

In the first 10 months, total sales hit 218,734 units, up nearly 3 percent year-on-year.

Truong Hai Auto (Thaco) continued to lead sales with 75,604 units in the period, up 6.3 percent year-on-year.

Toyota followed with 45,131 units, down 9.6 percent.

Mitsubishi, Ford and Honda rounded out the top five.

In October, the best-selling model was the sedan Hyundai Accent with 3,346 units, followed by the pickup truck Ford Ranger.

Last year, sales had fallen by 8 percent to 296,634 units as the Covid-19 pandemic badly affected the economy, hitting people’s incomes and discretionary spending.
