Italy September. Sales up 8% keeping the momentum

Italian Autos Market Ford-Fiesta-2017

Italian Autos Market kept momentum in September ending the Q3 with a +8.0%, projecting the full year not far from the 2 million units, the best in 8 years. Fiat dominates with 5 models out of the top 8 while Citroen is the fastest growing brand.

Italian economy seems to have gathered pace on the back of the broader recovery in the EU. Recently released data for Q2 shows that the economy posted a third consecutive 0.4% quarter-on-quarter expansion, underpinned by resilient household spending and a rebound in fixed investment, which is benefiting from lower corporate taxes. Data for the first two months of Q3 suggests the economy has broadly maintained its pace of growth. Both business and consumer confidence improved in August, and manufacturing PMI recorded its strongest reading in over six years on higher orders and output.

The 2017 is crucial for the domestic car passenger’s market after the recovery from bottom of 1.4 million hit in the 2012 to the over 1.8 achieved in the last year. Actual level is considered the most appropriate for a substitutional-base market and just a little growth was predicted for the year.

Indeed, so far the market surprised and according with data released by the Italian Minister of Transportation, total car passenger’s sales in the first half have been up 7.9% with 1.133.610.

In the Q3 the market kept momentum with sales improved 6.7% in July, 16.5% in August (with 84.104 units) and 7.0% in September (with 166.962 unit) with a year to date figures at 1.529.000 units, up 8.0%.

At brand-wise, Fiat is on top with 325.000 sales (+9.8%) and 21.3% of market share followed by Volkswagen with 111.475 (+4.8%) and Ford with 105.012 (+8.3%).

Ib fourth place Renault with 102.331 sales (+8.4%) ahead of Peugeot with 79.347 (+8.0%), Opel with 79.025 (+7.1%), Toyota with 64.705 (+18.4%), Citroen with 60.253 (+26.5%), Audi, leader in the premium segment, with 52.958 (+7.4%) and in 10th place Nisssan with 49.659 (+16.1%).
