Plan PIVE 2015 . The Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, announced at a press conference after the Council of Ministers aid car purchase are maintained throughout 2015 . Definitely good news for the distribution sector, which despite having closed a positive and optimistic year 2014, is located in figures similar to those of the 90 sales: well below the million cars annually. The Plan PIVE will continue this year, but there will be major changes mainly affect the vehicle to be scrapped.
The first major change is the requirement that the beneficiary of the aid has been owner of the vehicle to be scrapped for at least one prior to the purchase of the new car year. The second change, the car that will be scrapped has the ITV force.
A goal of 940,000 cars sold by 2015
In 2014 855.308 cars in Spain, an increase of 18.4% over the same period in 2014. removewere sold
Of course, should never forget that GANVAM is the main interested in that car sales back to levels of the past, but we agree with them that would be a good indicator of a recovering economy. Although green shoots are clear and the GDP is growing, credit has not yet been recovered and spending capacity of individuals remains low. And honestly, I think it would be healthy again figures for 2006 and 2007, the annual and half million cars, tap the unlimited credit and banking control that has caused so many problems. A stable figures one million cars annually seem optimal figure for Spain.
Is that it aspires GANVAM , at least in the short term: “ only continuity PIVE it will close 2015 with 940,000 units, still far from the 1 2000000 considered normal for a country like Spain by our level of motorization, population and per capita income . ” In per capita terms, this means they are selling 18 cars per 1,000 inhabitants, and GANVAM think that the optimum is 25 cars per 1,000 people. Although it begins to rethink the future renewal plans aid for the purchase of the car, the 2015 will be covered, which should also positively impact on the age of the fleet and its average emissions level.
aid also extend to Plan PIMA Air which mainly affects commercial vehicles. At the moment, the sector of the bike still without achieving any type of aid, despite complaints ANESDOR .
