Italian Car Market - November 2014 Maserati Gran Turismo

Italian Car Market shows encouraging signals in November, however the Association of Car Importers predicts a flat grow for 2015 and asks Government to support the market with indirect incentives to buy new cars.

In November 2014 according to data released by UNRAE, the Italian Association of Cars Importers, total new Car Passengers sold in Italy have been 109.185, up 5.9% compared with the correspondent month last year.

Year-to-date November sales in Italy have been 1.357.366, up 4% from the correspondent period last year.

Focus2move full year 2014 Italian Car Market volume projection was unchanged at 1.360.000, +3.3% compared with previous year.

CNG/LPG Cars continued to growth (+ 13.6% and 29.6%), together with hybrid vehicles (+ 18.9%), thanks to BEC incentives.

Massimo Nordio, President of UNRAE declared, “the 2014 result will be about 1.360.000 units. In the absence of any Government support we expect realistically car sales will not grow by more than a spontaneous 2.5%”. In the last press conference, UNRAE propose to the Government to help the Italian car market allowing people to deduct the cost of purchasing a new car.

Fiat was first with 21.319 sales in November and share at 19.5%, improving volume by 3.6%. Year-to-date sales were 260.139 with share at 20.5%, down 0.6 points from 2013.

Looking at the report on Car Groups, the November leader was FCA with 29.623 registrations and 27.1% market share, ahead of Volkswagen Group with 13.3% and Renault-Nissan with 13.2%.
