Spain new car sales

Spain new car sales up 6% in the best October since 2009. Furthermore the market posted the 26th y.o.y increase in a string and it is expected to benefit from expanding 2016 Budget approval. Nissan and Mercedes shine.

Economic Outlook

Spain’s economy recorded its largest expansion since Q1 2007 in the second quarter, driven by reinvigorated private consumption and rising fixed investment. However, recent data suggest that the economy may have hit its top speed in Q3: economic conditions moderated in September and industrial production lost steam in August.

Meanwhile, after years of austerity and ahead of general elections on 20 December, the government approved a looser 2016 budget on 20 October. The budget, which features increased spending on education, health and culture along with an increase in public salaries and state pensions, was passed despite the European Commission’s warning that it risks violating fiscal rules.

The Commission argues that the budget’s assumption of 3.0% growth and a fiscal deficit of 2.8% of GDP for 2016 are too optimistic given Spain’s exposure to slowing emerging markets.

Market Outlook

The robust Spanish GDP growth will continue in the 2016 as the budget proposed has been approved by EU despite including expanding actions and a lower reduction of deficit. The automotive sector will benefit from this policy that is projecting a further growth in the consumer’s demand.

Meantime keeping the momentum the market posted in September the highest volume since 2009 confirming that next year it could finally be at the pre-crisis level

According to data released by ANIACAM, the Spanish Associations of Car Manufacturers, total new car passengers sold in September had been 80.674, up 6.0%. While the last was the 26th  year-on-year growth in a string, it was also one of the smaller in terms of increase.

During the first ten months of the year sales had been 864.552, up 20.6% from the correspondent period last year.
