Italy January. Jeep boomed and PSA steps ahead

Italian Autos Market Jeep-Compass-2017

Italian Autos Market up 4.4% in January keeping the momentum. Jeep boomed 108%, gaining 7 spots from 2017 and landing on top of premium segment. Peugeot and Citroen shine gaining respectively the third and the sixth place. Ford Fiesta was third.

Italian economy is expected to maintain a reasonable pace of growth. Low inflation and further improvements in the labor market will support household spending, while fixed investment should continue growing thanks to favorable financing conditions. Upside risks come from stronger-than-expected growth in the Eurozone and further improvements in the banking sector. On the other hand, possible political turmoil following elections in March could generate some financial instability.

Italian vehicles market fell down in the period 2008-2011 hitting a thirty years record low, before starting to recover. In the last 5 years car passenger’s volume grew up from 1.4 million in the 2012 to 1.8 million in the 2016 and finally at 1.964.000 in the 2017, with a total light vehicles figures hitting the 2.14 million.
