Spanish new cars registrations

Spanish new cars registrations back on the fast line in April. Volkswagen won the leadership over a very crowd group of contenders overtaking Opel and Peugeot while the domestic models stand ahead of their rank.

Market Outlook

Preliminary data show that Spain’s economy outperformed its regional peers again in the first quarter despite the political deadlock that has characterized the country for the last four months. GDP growth held steady at the previous quarter’s 0.8% increase.

The automotive sector, after having broken in March the long series of year-on-year winning months, in April was back on the path scoring a robust increase over the same period last year. Indeed, according to data released by the ANIAC  and the ANIACAM, the Spanish Associations of Car Manufacturers and Dealers, the total new car passengers sold have been 100.889, up 22%.

Year to date April sales had been 386.446, up 10.5% from the same period of the 2015.
