Nearly half of October sales in Mexico, a 44.6%, took place in the country’s capital due to environmental regulations that grant benefits for those who owned this type of drivetrain.
Second place on sales volume is the neighboring State of Mexico with a 13.3%. Residents in the State of Mexico are subject to same regulations when entering the Mexico City jurisdiction.
