Germany February. Renault the fastest among the top players

Germany Vehicles Sales 2017 Renault-Clio_RS-2017

Germany Vehicles Sales are expected to a complicated year, with tasks from economy and from political side. However, after two months the balance is moderately positive. Renault is the best performer among top players.

The German economy ended the year on a moderately positive note. GDP growth accelerated on the back of stronger private and government consumption, the former thanks to the continued strength in the labor market and the latter as a result of refugee-related spending. Fixed investment also contributed strongly to growth, swinging back to expansionary territory owing to the boom in housing construction. Q4’s result brought full-year GDP growth to a multi-year high in 2016.

Economic momentum seems to have recovered in February following a series of disappointing data in January.

Following three years of consecutive growth ended with the 2016 at the third best all time, the 2017 is a year with many risks for the domestic car passenger’s market, waiting for evolution in the politic arena both inside and outside.

However, the year started in a positive note, according to data released by the V.D.A. and the V.D.I.K.  with total sales after two months at 484.494, up 3.4%.

Mercedes fast started in second place, with 46.137 sales (+8.4%), behind Volkswagen with 92.092 (-7.4) and ahead of Audi, up 2.0% with 46.045 units.

BMW was fourth (+4.0%) followed by Opel (-1.1%), Ford (+3.0%9, Skoda (+9.0%) and Renault (+20.5%).

Amazing growth from many luxury brands, with Jaguar up 54%, Lexus 97%, Maserati 114%, and Tesla 171%.
