Greek Cars Market Fiat-Panda_Cross-2017

Greek Cars Market increased 26.2% in October keeping the amazing pace started in July with year to date figures up in double-digit. Hyundai is the star of the year improving 289% while Skoda is up 189% year on year, The leaders are again Toyota and Nissan.

Greek economy remained in recession last year, contrasting previous estimates of flat growth. The downward revision was chiefly due to new household consumption figures, which revealed shrinking expenditure, indicating that the Greek economy is in a weaker state than previously thought. Despite years of austerity and bailouts, tough economic reforms have yet to fully bear fruit and GDP growth was weak in Q2 2017. Incoming data for the third quarter points to another period of lackluster momentum: The manufacturing PMI hit an over nine-year high in September.

Greek vehicles market is recovering after the sharp fall reported in the 2008-2010 and since 2012 car passenger’s segment improved from 58.480 to 78.872 in the 2016. The recovery projects the current year up to 87.000 units and the 2018 at 96.000.
