Spanish Auto 2016 Fiat-124_Spider-2017

Spanish Auto 2016 was a key sector to drag the economy up, scoring the fourth increase in a string and the best sales volume since 2008. Fiat was the best performer of the year.

Market Outlook

The formation of a government in October, albeit a weak minority one, after ten months of political stalemate finally enabled the drafting of a revised 2017 budget draft that complies with European deficit targets, which the government sent to the European Commission (EC) on 9 December. Despite the political uncertainty, however, the Spanish economy has continued to achieve remarkably strong growth this year.

Relevant rule in this recovery was taken by the automotive sector, considering the over 2.3 million vehicles produced in the country annually and the again growing domestic demand.

According to data reported by the ANIACAM, The Association of Car Distributors, ending the year with December sales at 97.411 (+9.9%) the 2016 scored the fourth increase in a row with final car passenger’s sales at 1.153.688 sales (+10.8%), the best since 2008.
