German Autos sales

German Autos sales shining in August fueled by outstanding economic trend. Mercedes advanced in second place ahead of Audi and BMW with strong sales on C and A class.

Market Outlook

Europe’s largest economy lost speed in Q2 when GDP expanded 0.4% quarter-on-quarter, down from Q1’s 0.7% increase. Investment in machinery and equipment also fell, heightening concerns that a lack of investment is undermining Germany’s growth prospects and sparking criticism that the government should devote more of its record-high state revenues to the economy to spur investment.

In such positive economic environment, the domestic car sales kept the positive path with August sales again almost performing.

According to data released by the V.D.A. (Verband der Automobilindustrie) and the V.D.I.K. (Association of International Motor Vehicles Manufacturers), the car passenger’s sales in August have been 244.514 units, up 8.0%.

Year to date August the total cars sales had been 2.257.239, up 5.7% compared to the same period of the previous year.
