As noted in previous articles, the car industry is making an impressive recovery from last year’s recession. Car sales figures for almost all of the major brands are on the rise since late last year and things don’t seem to be slowing down.
Consumers are having an easier time spending and there is far less fear regarding the economy and the automobile market. This is great news for car dealerships who really had a hard time in 2009 with really low sales figures and little consumer interest.
February’s car sales figures continue the upward trend though, and many of the big manufacturers are noting impressive continued increases. The new and used car market seems to have made a complete recovery and the future looks bright, especially for these 3 major brands.
BMW Car sales increase 14.0 percent
Audi car sales maintains strong growth
Mercedes-Benz car sales up by 13 percent
The fact remains that these brands are so big it really takes something huge for their sales to drop. This did happen during 2009 but they have rebounded with force and are once again thriving in the new and used car market. Along with Volkswagen, these 4 German car makers are hugely popular in South Africa and as usual you can find a comprehensive list of their cars at Cars.co.za
