Turkey Autos Market in April 2016 fell down. Renault jumped on top

Turkey Autos Market in April 2016

Turkey Autos Market in April 2016 decreased 7.8%. Renault jumped in first place, overtaking the German rival Volkswagen thanks to strong sales on the Fluence, best-selling model in the country.

Economic Outlook

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated on 5 May that he will step down following an extraordinary meeting of the AKP scheduled for 22 May. Davutoglu lost a political struggle against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The leaders had clashed on a series of topics, which included their economic views, the conflict with the Kurds and Davutoglu’s less enthusiastic support regarding shifting the country to a presidential system.

Moreover, the agreement on the refugee crisis between Turkey and the European Union bolstered Davutoglu’s popularity, which was seen as a threat to Erdogan’s previously unquestioned authority. In this regard, as the deal was Davutoglu’s personal project, it is not clear whether Erdogan will move forward with some of the reforms included in the pact that are needed for the deal to be implemented.
