Czech Auto Market is rocking in the sky.

Czech Auto Market Skoda-Yeti_2014

Czech Auto Market is rocking in the sky scoring the record first half up 20 percent from last year. This is the best market in Europe this year fueled by amazing sales from the domestic make Skoda.

Economic Outlook

The Czech economy experienced a gradual recovery throughout 2014 and economic activity strengthened notably at the outset of this year. GDP grew 4.2% annually in Q1, which marked the fastest pace of expansion in over seven years.

Moreover, recent indicators suggest that, after Q1’s notable increase, strong growth momentum carried over into Q2. Unemployment fell to a 30-month low in April and both the manufacturing PMI and the Economic Sentiment index increased over the previous month in May.

On the political front, tensions persist between the two main parties in the governing coalition—the Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD) and the ANO 2011 party. These tensions stem from differences in opinion regarding economic policy. Nonetheless, the risk that the coalition could break-up is low.

In June 2015 according to data released by S.D.A., the Czech Republic Car Importers Association, the total new Car Passengers sold in Czech Republic have been 21.315, up 17.3% compared with the correspondent month last year.

First Half 2015 was the best ever with sales at 113.261, up 20.4% projecting a full year volume above the 220.000 units, for the first time more than the 0.2 million.
