Last month, 2,064 new cars were registered, nearly three per cent more than during the same period last year, according to the vehicle industry. During the first ten months of the year, the total number of new cars and four-by-fours that were sold reached 26,634, 27 per cent up on the previous year when 20,911 were sold during the same period.

Today, the Spanish vehicle manufacturers’ association Anfac reported that, at a national level,  new car sales rose 5.2 per cent year on year in October to 80,005, marking the best October since 2009 and 26 straight months of rising sales. This also follows a 22.5 per cent annual rise in new car sales in September, and October 2015 included two fewer working days than October 2014. So, the industry is feeling confident of a sustainable upturn in business.
