Car Sales in Turkey Ford-Focus_Sedan_2015

Car Sales in Turkey at best April ever booming 71%, the fastest market worldwide in the 2015. Eleven players have doubled sales with Ford very aggressive in second place. Fiat Linea was back the best-selling model followed by Renault Clio and Fluence.

Country Outlook

With less than one month to go before general elections, Turkey’s economy remains stuck in the doldrums.

The economy lost steam last year as it was weighed down by sluggish consumption and falling fixed investment. Moderate economic growth has contributed to both rising unemployment, which hit an almost-five-year high in January, and a deterioration in the value of the lira this year.

Against this backdrop, the country will head to the polls on 7 June in parliamentary elections. The ruling Justice and Development party (AKP), which is widely favored to win, has stated that their top electoral priority will be to switch from the current parliamentary system of government to a presidential system.

In order to easily change the constitution, the AKP needs to win 367 of the 550 seats in parliament. President Erdogan has been advocating that the change will promote political stability and quicker decision-making going forward, while critics argue that it will remove many of the current system’s checks and balances.
