Bahrain Cars Sales declined sharply in the third quarter of the year following the upwards trend started in the second half of the previous year, following years of record sales. The outlook is improving
Bahrain’s economy slowed down considerably in the second quarter of this year, expanding 2.5% annually and nearly halving the result of the previous quarter. The deceleration mainly reflected a significant contraction in the all-important oil sector, which more than offset healthy growth in the construction, financial and manufacturing sectors.
The Q3 for the cars market was a negative period, in fact the sales slumped in double-digit keeping the pace with the trend of previous months. In September the registrations declined for the 12th month in a row.
As result, year to date September the total vehicles sold in the country had been 39.057, declining 25.8%.
Toyota confirmed the leadership, despite the lost in sales (-31.3%) followed by Nissan (-30.4%), Hyundai (-7.7%), Lexus (-6.9%), Kia (-35.9%) and Honda (-5.5%).
As far as the best-selling models performance, the Toyota Land Cruiser kept the leadership with 3.925 sales (-62.7%) followed by the Toyota Hilux with 2.675 (-51.6%), the Toyota Hiace with 1.594 (+0.0%), the Hyundai Accent with 1.020 (+133.3%) and the Toyota Corolla with 1.421 (+0.0%).
