Spain January. Sales boomed 20% with Volkswagen on top

Spanish autos market Audi-A7_Sportback-2018

Spanish autos market started the new year with a roaring performance, albeit coming from the best annual performance in the decade. Volkswagen jumped on top of the list while the last year leader, Renault, was 6th. Audi joins the Top 10 club.

Spanish economic growth will continue to moderate but remain resilient through 2018 as employment growth slows and fiscal constraints continue to hamper public sector activities. In addition, political uncertainty stemming from Catalonia’s attempt at gaining independence will continue to weigh on the outlook. The FocusEconomics panel sees growth at 2.7% next year, up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s estimate. For 2019, our panelists see the pace of economic expansion slowing further, to 2.3%.

According to data released by the Minister of Transportation through the local association of car distributors (ANIACAM), after the quite positive end of 2017, in January the car passenger’s market started really fast, up 20.2%, with 102.151 units.

Confirming the wide range of brands fighting for the leadership, in this month the leader was Volkswagen, gaining 3 spots from the full year 2017 ranking, with 8.911 sales (+34.4%) with 8.7% of market share

In second place Seat with 8.540 (+30.9%) followed by Peugeot with 7.519 (+30.8%), Opel with 6.888 sales (-5.6%), Toyota with 6.340 (+12.3%) and the 2017 leader, Renault with 6.167 (+47.7%).

In seventh place Audi, up 5 ranks from the F.Y. 2017, with 5.822 (+14.4%) ahead of  Citroen with 4.922 (+12.8%), Hyundai with 4.809 (+75.8%) and in 10th place Ford with 4.686 (+3.5%).

At model wise, recovering from the 8th place last year, the leader was back the Volkswagen Golf, with 3.190 sales (+52.9%) ahead of the 2017 leader, the Seat Leon, with 3.160 (+35.7%), the Dacia Sandero with 2.452 (+27.5%), the Seat Ibiza with 2.241 (-8.8%), The Nissan Qashquai with 1.921 (+11.5%) and the Volkswagen Tiguan with 1.837 (+39.9%).
