Audi A1 Sportback, one of the brand’s best-sellers, was presented in the Mexican market. Likewise, Daimler introduced its first mirrorless truck, following Mercedes-Benz steps. Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, Volkswagen announced its first fleet of autonomous cars to be the center of Qatar 2022 World Cup’s mobility system.

Production in Mexico remains steady, at least for GM. Despite strikes in the US, GM will reach 280,000 production units in San Luis Potosi where the Onix is assembled. Meanwhile, data shows that 7 out of 10 units exported in Mexico are SUVs and pickups.

Notably, Fiat finally formalized its merger with Peugeot to create the fourth largest automotive group in the world.
