Spain Cars October Sales Mini-Countryman_Plug-in_Hybrid-2017

Spain Cars October Sales up a little while the country found a government and frictions with the EU. Volkswagen led again albeit losing sales while Seat Leon, Nissan Qasqai jumped on podium.

Market Outlook

An end to Spain’s nearly year-long political gridlock may be in sight. On 23 October, the center-left PSOE announced its intention to abstain at the confidence vote that caretaker Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy will face before the end of the month.

On 15 October, the caretaker government submitted to the EU authorities a 2017 budget draft that envisages a deficit of 3.6% of GDP next year, which is 0.5 percentage points above the EU target of 3.1%. The new government will need to find additional savings of around EUR 5.0 billion to adjust for the shortfall.

Despite the long political uncertain and the already great recovery scored in the last three years, the automotive sector is still gaining, while with a slower speed.

According to data released by the ANIAC  and the ANIACAM, the Spanish Associations of Car Manufacturers and Dealers, in the last month the total new car passengers sold have been 83.733, up 4.6%.

Year to date  sales had been 958.018, up 10.9%.
