Spain: June 2012 Car Sales at lowest in over 20 years.

The hope is the last to die! Indeed, “hope” is the only remaining sentiment for people in the car industry in Spain where the market is declining month after month in an economic scenario not improving at all.

June was again negative, in spite of the year-on-year comparison was easier than in the previous month. The 73.000 units were 2.000 below our expectations. Unfortunately we do not foresee any positive month before 2013. The local manufacturers association (Anfac) is projecting the full year 2012 market at 750.000 units. We are more pessimistic, with focus2move.com full year forecast at 730.000 units, down 9% from last year.

In June, Seat had recovered the second position in the ranking, after Volkswagen, with 6.483 sales and 8.8% of share, up 1.3 points of share from previous month. Volkswagen sold 6.727 units with a share of 9.2%, down 1.5 points from May.

In the month, third was Citroen, with 6.101 units and 8.3% of share, up 0.8 points, ahead of Opel, with 5.989 units and 8.2% of share, up 0.2. Renault was fifth with 5.962 sales and 8.1% of share.

In the year to date ranking, Volkswagen leaded with 37.935 units and 9.3% of share, followed by Peugeot with 32.727 sales and 7.9% of share and Seat, with 32.378 units, just 22 more than Citroen, and a share of 8.0%.

Citroen was fourth, ahead of Ford, Opel and Renault.
