Diesel vehicle sales decrease in Turkey

The market share of diesel cars is on the decline in both Europe and Turkey as the EU accelerates the adoption of alternatively-powered vehicles, such as hybrid and electric cars, while the Turkish market is shifting towards Autogas models.

In the Turkish auto market, hybrid car sales have shown an upward trend, but the numbers have remained low largely due to high prices and low stock availability for such models.

Automotive Distributors’ Association (ODD) sales figures report on the rising demand for Autogas and petrol vehicles in this country. According to ODD data, diesel cars recorded 114,936 unit sales in the first seven months of 2020 and their share declined from 56% to 42% during the same period.

During this same period, Autogas car sales rose to 12,320, accounting for 4.5% of the total market. Meanwhile, the number of hybrid car sales increased to 8,129 from 5,495, yet its market share recorded declined to 3% from 3.2%. For more information, please visit this link.
