Italian Autos Sales in September Jeep-Grand_Cherokee_EU-Version

Italian Autos Sales in September had been fast again despite the negative data published on a stagnating economy. Over doubling sales, Jeep landed into the top 10, first time ever.

Market Outlook

The revised estimates recently published by the Italian National Statistics Office (ISTAT) confirmed that the economy stagnated in the second quarter of 2016. The flat reading represented a deceleration from Q1’s 0.3% expansion and was due to the broad-based weakening of the domestic sector. Conversely, the external sector contributed positively to overall growth since exports expanded at the fastest rate in six years.

However, demand for new vehicles stands up despite no incentives are in place neither for low emission vehicles and the domestic sector hit the 28th year on year consecutive growth.

Indeed, according to data released by the UNRAE, the Italian Association of Cars Importers, last month new car passenger’s sales had been 155.961, up 19.0%. Year to Date total sales had been 1.412.325, up 17.9% from the previous year.
