Turkish auto market in July collapsed hit by political events.

Turkey Vehicles Sales in July 2016 Volkswagen-Tiguan-2017

Turkish auto market in July collapsed hit by political events. Breaking the almost positive momentum, the industry has lost sharply, while the new Fiat Aegea was finally escalating on top of the ranking.

Market Outlook

Political unrest has deepened in the country in the wake of the unsuccessful 15–16 July military coup. In the aftermath of the crisis, the lira dropped to a new record low against the greenback, while, on 20 July, S&P Global Ratings cut Turkey’s credit rating to even deeper within junk territory.

As several others industries, the automotive market was severely hit by the environment breaking an almost positive trend.

Indeed according to data reported by the O.D.D., Otomotiv Distribütörleri Derneği (Car Distributors Association in Turkey), in July the light vehicles sales had been 55.536, down 33.8%.

Year to date July sales had been 492.742, down 4.6% compared to July 2015.
