Portugal 2017. Cars sales up 7.1%, the best since 2008

Portuguese Auto Market 2017 BMW-X3-2018

Portuguese Auto Market kept momentum int he 2017 improving 7.1% at the best level in a decade. Renault runs fast on top of the competitive arena gaining the race for leadership over Peugeot and Volkswagen.

Portuguese economy is experiencing a momentous turnaround. Quarter-on-quarter growth in Q3 was confirmed at 0.5%, up from 0.3% in Q2. A rebound in private consumption, bolstered by positive consumer confidence and the ongoing recovery in the labor market, was behind Q3’s higher print. Although confidence among households fell in November from October’s record high, overall economic sentiment in the month remained strong and points to a solid economic performance in the final quarter. A critical turning point in Portugal’s recovery from the debt crisis that brought it to the brink of default five years ago came on 15 December, when Fitch Ratings upgraded the nation’s credit rating by two notches.

Portuguese vehicles market was hit by a huge crisis in the 2008 losing 75% of volume. However, since 2012 a strong recovery is in place and in the last five years car passenger’s sales doubled from 95.000 in the 2012 to 207.315 in the 2016. The momentum is still in place and the 2017 ended with over 220.000 sales, up 7.1% and the run will continue during the 2018.
