Japan domestic vehicles market in first half 2016 fell 4.8%. Mitsubishi down 50% in June

Japan domestic vehicles market

Japan domestic vehicles market in first half 2016 fell 4.8% while the leader Toyota improved 2.2%. In June Mitsubishi crashed over 50% hit by the start of restructuring process after the Nissan Take over.

Market Outlook

Although GDP growth for Q1 was revised upward on the back of stronger private consumption, on 1 June, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe decided to delay the implementation of a controversial sales tax hike from 8% to 10% in order to not derail Japan’s incipient recovery. The tax increase was originally supposed to take effect in April 2017, but it will now likely occur in October 2019.

The automotive sector is still struggling with the domestic market depressed by low demand and by Mitsubishi difficulties related to the emission not compliance recently discovered  and the Nissan take over.

According to the data released by the JADAJAMA and JAIA, (the Japanese Associations of car manufacturers, importers and dealers), in June total new vehicles sales had been 419.834, down 4.9%.

First Half sales in the third largest market in the world had been 2.541.997, down -4.8%.
