Japan Autos Industry

Japan Autos Industry rose moderately in August. The last generation Toyota Sienta gained the third step allowing Toyota to monopolize the podium with the Aqua and the Prius.

Market Outlook

Weak wage growth, an uncertain global economic outlook and a strong yen limited growth in the second quarter, with GDP expanding at a paltry 0.2% quarter-on-quarter seasonally-adjusted annualized rate. Against this backdrop, the government unveiled a JPY 28.1 trillion (USD 269 billion) stimulus package in an attempt to jumpstart the economy.

According to the data released by the JADAJAMA and JAIA, (the Japanese Associations of car manufacturers, importers and dealers), in August total new vehicles sales rose moderately  by 1.6% with 331.640 units.

Year to date August sales had been 3.289.217, down 3.9%.
