Israel Auto Sales in 2016 Hyundai-Genesis_G90-2017

Israel Auto Sales in 2016 are on the sky. April and May registrations boomed at the highest level ever and a new all time record is predicted for this year. The battle among Hyundai, Kia and Toyota is still in place.

Market Outlook

Israel’s economy accelerated notably in the final quarter of 2015 and GDP grew at the fastest rate in a year. Growth was underpinned by a double-digit expansion in government spending. Moreover, private consumption was supported by favorable labor market conditions and ultra-low interest rates. The most recent data point to a slight deceleration of the economy in Q1. Meanwhile, geopolitical tensions in the country remain elevated.

Following a positive start of the year, domestic vehicles market has exceeded expectations during the last two months reporting an outstanding increase both in April and May. Indeed, according to data released by the Israeli Department of Transportation System, April sales were up a huge 29.8% with 22.946 units while May rose 22.9% at 25.525.

Year to date May was the results of a steak of all winning months with total 139.078 sales, up 17.4% from last year.
