Singapore Autos Mazda-CX-3-2016

Singapore Autos almost doubled volumes in the first part of the year. Outstanding the performance recorded by Mitsubishi and Mazda while the van Toyota Coaster was the best selling model.

Market Outlook

According to preliminary data on GDP for Q2, Singapore’s economy grew 0.8% over the previous quarter at a seasonally adjusted annualized rate, which represents an acceleration from Q1’s 0.2% modest expansion.

The Singapore dollar weakened following the UK’s 23 June vote to leave the European Union as capital fled to safe haven assets such as the JPY and gold.

Despite the economic difficulties, the domestic vehicles market kept roaring in the first semester of the year. April and May were the best growth in triple figure, materializing the chance to beat the annual all time record.

According to data released by the Singapore Bureau of Statistics, in April sales had been 13.845 (+158.8%), followed in May by 13.675 units (+121.8%) and in June by 13.291 (+60.2%).

The first half sales volume hit a stunning 67.330, up 97.6% compared to the same period of the 2015.
