Asociación Española de Fabricantes de Automóviles y Camiones (ANFAC)’s latest commercial vehicle registrations have been revealed for April 2021 and have reported further growth and revival in the Spanish commercial vehicle market.

ANFAC Publishes Latest Registrations for Spanish CV Market

Starting with the LCV segment, ANFAC reports that a total of 15,875 light commercial vehicles were registered in Spain in April 2021. This represents a staggering 771.3% increase in comparison with April 2020, when the country was in the midst of its first lockdown. Madrid accounted for most of these sales with 6449 units registered during the month.

Additionally, the industrial vehicle and bus segment also had positive news to report with a 96.2% increase compared to one year ago with 1,776 units registered. This in turn has meant that as of the end of April, the segment is currently 19.7% better in terms of sales in comparison with the first four months of 2020.

It is also worth noting the strength of the bus sector in the Spanish figures. April saw a 107% increase on bus registrations compared to April 2020. With the holiday season approaching and the bus sector hugely depending on the tourism industry, it could be a positive sign that registrations are starting to move in the Spanish bus sector.
