ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Sales of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in Turkey surged 387.5% year-on-year in July, the Automotive Distributors Association said on Wednesday, reflecting a rash of purchases after the country’s partial coronavirus lockdown was lifted.
In the January-July period, sales rose 60.3% year-on-year, the association also said. It forecast sales for this year at 650,000-700,000 vehicles.
