Abstract By using data envelopment analysis and productivity measures obtained via Malmquist index, this paper investigates the patterns and dynamics of efficiency, productivity, and technological change of the automotive sector in Mexico. Particularly, we examine five subclusters (automotive parts, gasoline engines and engine parts, motor vehicles, small vehicles, and metal mills and foundries) and four regions (border, center, Bajio, and others) over the period 2003–2013. It is also studied the impact of the Great Crisis on the automotive cluster and subclusters efficiency and productivity performance before and after 2009. We also identify input congestion, and distinguish its source. Among other results, we find congestion in the center and border regions and various degrees of resilience to the Great Crisis.
