The month-on-month sales decline was primarily driven by disruptions in the supply chain, prompting certain automakers to temporarily halt production. The year-on-year decrease was further exacerbated by diminished demand, attributed to escalating car prices resulting from currency depreciation, increased taxes, and more expensive auto financing.
