Netherlands 2017. Toyota shines in a market up 7%

Netherlands Autos Sales

Netherlands Autos Sales recovered 7% in the 2017 after the previous year fall. Albeit losing volume, Volkswagen stands on top of the list while Renault in second has reduced the gap. The star of the year was Toyota, thanks to hybrid line up, up 30%.

Dutch economy is set to grow at the fastest clip in 10 years in 2017, and recent data suggests that growth will likely pick up in Q4 over the previous quarter. Sentiment indicators reached record-high levels in November. Confidence among manufacturers reached the second-highest level on record, and all subcomponents and subsectors have remained in positive territory this year through November. On a slightly less positive note, annual growth in retail trade slowed in October, despite high consumer confidence levels, following a solid upturn in Q3.

Dutch vehicles market in recent years has reported up and down influenced by the effects of incentives for low emission vehicles, introduced and then cut, with the effect that full year 2016 sales at 385.000 were over 115.000 down from the 2012. A robust private consumer demand sustained the market across the 2017 with a substantial recovery from the previous year. Indeed, according to data released by the RAI Vereninging, the Dutch Association of Car Manufacturers, sales grew at 414.548 (+7.7%).
