ANFAC confirmed that the psychological figure had been passed for the first time since the start of the economic crisis in 2008 and that it had been reached with one week of sales still to be calculated for the year.

A model poses with a Volvo concept car at Auto China 2014 in Beijing April 20, 2014. China is set to surpass the United States to become Volvo Car Group?s biggest market in 2014 with sales of at least 80,000 cars in the world?s largest auto market.

The association highlighted that sales of new cars have already risen by 10 percent in December taking the total of new cars on Spanish roads in 2015 to 1,035,000.

This is a 21 percent improvement on the sales figures for 2014, considerably higher than the average European growth of 9 percent.

ANFAC puts much of the responsibility for the positive sales figures to the Plan PIVE 8 initiative put into action by the Spanish government, the latest in a series of initiatives aiming to stimulate the automobile industry, while also praising the efforts of showrooms and better finance possibilities.

It is important for the sales of new cars to increase in Spain, given that the economic crisis saw the average age of cars on Spanish roads increase until over 50 percent were over 10 years old, raising questions of pollution and reduced road safety. Enditem
