Spain car industry fell 9% in January 2013. Dacia Sandero on top!

In January car sales were 49.748 sales, down 9.6% from last year with a projection for a full year volume below 600.000 units. However, thanks to the strong pressure of car makers, the Spanish government announced a revision of current scrap incentive plan, originally expiring in March with a limited budget. The new PIVE will benefit scrap vehicles with more than 10 years of age (it was 12+) and will last after 12 months.

ANIACAM forecast is for over 150.000 vehicles involved in the plan during the 2013, with final year market volume around 680.000.
