Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/21/2014 -- For H114, the passenger car market was up 30.0% year-on-year (y-o-y) and we are maintaining our forecast for 25.0% growth in car sales over the full year. There is potential for similarly high growth in Q3. This period in 2013 saw high political tensions, and the temporary closure of some production plants, which restricted supplies. The latter months of the year saw the market stabilise and this will reduce the stark base effects.
The commercial vehicle (CV) segment also enjoyed stellar sales growth in June with truck sales up 73.0% y-o-y and bus sales 43.0% higher y-o-y. This leaves H114 CV sales ahead of our initial expectations, with H1 truck sales up 36.0% y-o-y and bus sales up 24.0% y-o-y. We have revised up our full-year forecasts for light commercial vehicle sales growth from 7.0% to 18.0% and our bus sales growth forecast from 5.0% to 15.0%. Although we are optimistic for the CV segment based on recent strength in the market, we also believe the removal of fuel subsidies has more scope to impact this segment due to greater fuel use. This is why our revised projections leave room for sales growth to ease later in the year.

Although the impact of July's fuel subsidy cut will start to be seen from now on, we don't expect higher fuel prices to dent passenger car sales significantly. In addition to the strength of demand in the market, this is also down to consumer preferences, which have already shifted toward smaller fuel efficient vehicles over the last year or so as a result of the weak pound pushing up vehicle prices. We expect this trend to continue, particularly with the higher fuel prices, which will create opportunities for the brands with these models in their range.
Volume brands with smaller cars in their range are already leading the market and drove the impressive passenger car growth in June. Market leader Chevrolet achieved growth of 50.7% y-o-y in the month and second-placed Hyundai Motor registered a 78.5% y-o-y increase in June sales....
