Export vehicle production in Mexico for the year ended April 30 was up seven percent
on the previous year, the Mexican Automotive Industry Association (AMIA) announced.

AMIA added that local market production for the first four months of 2001 was
up 16.5 percent compared with a year ago while wholesale deliveries to Mexican
distributors for the year to April 30 rose by 20.6 percent.

But there may be trouble ahead.

In the last week Nissan said it would focus on Mexican Sentra sales in the
face of falling U.S. demand for its staple product while Ford stopped its export-only
F-series truck production for 10 days.
