Spanish true fleet registration record highest growth rate of the year
The Spanish fleet sector continues to see double-digit growth with the June rate of 19.5% marking the highest growth rate for the year so far.
The figures from Dataforce show that the private market grew by 3.6% last month, special channels by 4.9% with true fleet taking the crown in terms of the highest growth – true fleet also scored the highest absolute volume growth of the three channels in June. Overall, the total market achieved 137,000 registrations with all channels bettering their volume of June 2016.
Within the true fleet top 10, Renault retained their position at the top of the fleet chart, closely followed by VW but it was SEAT jumping into third from ninth that really excelled, achieving the highest growth rate from the top 25 brands with a rate of +110.7%.
While both the Leon and Ateca registered good volumes and an increase over last June’s figures it was the Ibiza that really drove this surge, with almost 1,000 units over last year’s month-on-month comparison and on its way to earning 55.2% of SEAT’s monthly volume.
Peugeot in fourth, Audi in fifth and BMW in sixth followed in the ranking, Ford and Mercedes were next with both retaining the same positions as in June 2016. Nissan delivered the next highest rank surge with a three-place gain securing 9th on the back of a + 37.4% growth while Citroën rounded out the top 10.
