Spain new cars sales in May Opel-Corsa 2016

Spain new cars sales in May up 21% fueled by a strong GDP expansion albeit political impasse. Opel and Renault over performed taking the top positions both among brands and models ranking.

Market Outlook

The political impasse that has characterized Spain for several months seems to have had a limited impact on the economy in Q1. GDP expanded 0.8%, thus matching the previous two quarter’s growth rates.

The domestic new car passenger’s market kept the outstanding pace in May with a performance again over 20% compared with the same month last year.

According to data released by the ANIAC  and the ANIACAM, the Spanish Associations of Car Manufacturers and Dealers, the total new car passengers sold in May have been 114.441, up 21.2%.

Year to date May sales had been 500.279, up 12.7% from the same period of the 2015.
