Turkish domestic car market dropped again in August

Turkish domestic car market

Turkish domestic car market dropped again in August. Fiat advanced in second place despite the top model, Egea has lost the leadership. Volkswagen was again market leader.

Market Outlook

Recent economic data suggest a slowdown of the Turkish economy in Q2 as industrial production decelerated in June and the PMI recorded relatively low readings in the five months up to August.

However, the economic impact of July’s unsuccessful military coup in the second half of the year is unclear. Consumer sentiment remains sound and the index hit a nine-month high in August, thus signaling strong private consumption in the months ahead.

Following the sharp fall reported in July, domestic vehicles market in August struggled again losing in double-digit,

Indeed according to data reported by the O.D.D., Otomotiv Distribütörleri Derneği (The Car Distributors Association in Turkey), in August the light vehicles sales had been 71.556, down 13.0%.

Year to date August sales had been 564.298, down 5.7%.
