Italy autos Renault-Clio-2017

Italy autos tepid in July introducing a slow pace second half. Renault still fast together with Mercedes and BMW while the Fiat Tipo joined the top 10 models club landing in seventh place.

Market Outlook

While the economy accelerated slightly in the first quarter, the latest high-frequency data for Q2 suggest that growth remained weak. The UK’s vote to leave the EU prompted high tension in the Italian equity markets, hitting Italy’s most vulnerable banks especially hard and adding to an already serious banking crisis.

Following the roaring first half of the year, with a 20% increase almost the double than original forecast by the manufacturers, the domestic auto market started the second half with a tepid July performance anticipating a more difficult sales period.

Indeed, according to data released by the UNRAE, the Italian Association of Cars Importers, last month new car passenger’s sales had been 137.394, up 3.4% posting the twenty-fifth year-on-year increase in a row.

Year to Date sales had been 1.185.229, up 17.7% from the previous year.
