ISTANBUL Jan 6 Turkish automotive sales were
expected to shrink slightly more than 10 percent to around
875,000 vehicles this year as lira depreciation hits demand,
Automotive Distributors Association (ODD) chairman Mustafa
Bayraktar told Reuters.
He said in an interview late on Thursday that fleet sales
accounted for around 50 percent of passenger car sales last year
and were expected to be around the same level this year.
Automotive sales rose 1.6 percent last year to 983,720
vehicles, a record level, according to ODD data.
