2015: Irish car sales 6 months in
Just as everyone remembers the Bryan Adams song, ‘The Summer of 69’, Irish car dealers remember ‘The Summer of 08.’ Unlike Mr. Adams, however, those were not the best days of our lives…
Fast-forward to the summer of 2015 and car sales are on track to surpass 100,000 this year — the first time for 7 years. Below is a snapshot of car sales for the first 6 months of 2015.
In the first 6 months of 2015, over 82,000 cars were sold, 10,000 more than the whole of 2013.
Each of the top selling 15 car brands have seen increases on last year.
While car sales in June were down 14% on last year, there is an expectation that many buyers are holding off for for potential offers in July 2015.
