Recent tensions between Israel and Turkey have not affected the car industry. According to data collected by the Israeli Vehicle Importers Association, the market share of vehicles imported from Turkey has reached 10% during the first eight months of the year (approximately 14,200 cars), compared to only 7.9% during the same period of 2009 (appox. 8,835 cars).
The figures represent cars that were manufactured or assembled in Turkish factories of major vehicle manufacturers. Israel imports many models from Turkey, including Ford Connect and Transit, Hyundai Accent and Matrix, Toyota Auris and Verso, Renault Clio, Megane, Fluence and Symbol, as well as certain models of Citroën Berlingo, Peugeot Partner, 4-door Honda Civic, and Fiat Doblò and Fiorino.
The increase in Turkish imports shadows the market share of Japanese cars, which still hold a bigger share of the market, at 35.3%, but has dropped from 40.3% during the first eight months of the year.
The market share of Korean vehicles decreased from 11.8% to 9%, while Thai imports declined from 1.7% to 1.3% and North American vehicles from 3.1% to 2.6%.
In contrast, the European vehicles' market share increased from 29.7% in 2009 to 33.4% in 2010.
According to the data, 18,580 new vehicles were sold during the month of August – a 6.4% drop from July – but an increase of 13.5% from August last year.
From the beginning of the year there has been a 27% increase in new vehicle ownerships, totaling at 142,371 new cars, compared with only 112,241 new vehicles during the first eight months of 2009.
Mazda lost its monthly lead to Hyundai for the third time this year, with 2,154 new car ownerships compared with 2,224 Hyundai sales. However, Mazda, which has led the market throughout 2009, still leads with 21,175 overall sales, compared to 19,706 Hyundai purchases.
