Poland June. Market skyrocketing thanks to stellar GDP expansion

Polish cars sales Skoda-Octavia_Scout-2017

Polish cars sales hit the new best ever first half, up 16%, with June +6%, with one of the fastest speed this year in Europe, fueled by the huge GDP increase and expansive economic policy. Skoda market leader ahead of Toyota and Volkswagen.

Recent data indicates that the economy in Poland started the year on a strong footing as it grew 4.0% in Q1, which beat market expectations as well as Q4’s result. Q1’s stellar print was driven by higher private consumption—the result of a tight labor market—and a recovery in EU-funded investment.

While the government’s stimulus measures are supporting a spending spree in the economy, they are likely to strain public finances this year and next, which will be further aggravated by a reduction in the retirement age.

The domestic automotive industry arrived at this 2017 after the impressive series of three all time records in a row scored by the domestic cars market. Moreover, expectations for the current year were almost positive again considering the new economic policy, focused on short-term economic expansion.

And indeed the year started booming up, with data released by the local Association of Car Distributors, informing about a Q1 up 19.1% and the Q2 again in positive note with April and May up respectively 13.8% and 20.5% before to report a milf June, up only 5%.

First Half have been 245.603, up 16.5% with a speed to hit the half a million sales at the end of the year, first time ever.

Skoda was market leader with 31.428 sales (+16.6%) with 12.8% of market share and was followed by Toyota with 27.264 units (26.1%), Volkswagen with 24.363 (+19.5%), Opel with 18.547 (+5.9%), Ford with 14.766 (+1.8%), Renault with 13.898 (+22.9%) and Kia with 11.598 (+9.1%).

At model wise, the number one so far was the Skoda Octavia with 9.853 sales (+14.1%) followed by the Skoda Fabia with 9.386 (+17.8%), the Opel Astra with 8.456 (+14.8%), the Volkswagen Golf with 7.563 (+18.2%) and the Toyota Yaris with 6.325 (+2.2%).
