New Car Sales in Spain Renault-Kadjar_2016

New Car Sales in Spain were fast again in May fueled by strong sales from Opel and Renault while Volkswagen Group struggles albeit confirming the leadership. Renault launched the Kadjar local made.

Economic Outlook

More detailed data confirm that Spain’s economy picked up pace in the first quarter of the year, expanding a seasonally adjusted 0.9% over the previous quarter, which marked the fastest pace of growth in eight years. Spain has become one of the fastest growing major economies in the Euro zone as the country recovers from years of recession.

Meanwhile, regional and local elections held on 24 May signaled a shift in the country’s political landscape. Traditionally dominant parties—the governing People’s Party and the opposition Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party—lost a large share of votes to newcomers Podemos and Citizens, who were able to attract voters frustrated with the government’s corruption scandals and years of austerity policies.

Moreover, the elections served as a test of voters’ mood ahead of the general election due before year-end and points to the possibility of a more fragmented parliament, which is unchartered territory for Spain.

Market Outlook

In May 2015 according to data released by ANIACAM, the Spanish Associations of Car Manufacturers, total new Car Passengers sold have been 94.674, up 14.8% from the correspondent month last year, posting the 20th consecutive growing month in a string.
