Thomas Staertzel, Chairman of the committee has commented: “As earlier stated, the market shows better dynamics than expected. Postponement of the disposal fee increase supported the market and helped slowing cars prices increase. The Covid-19 situation is worsening, but we hope that we manage to escape a complete lockdown. Despite of the difficulties with the semi-conductors supply and metal prices increase, we believe to prevent a drop down in 2021 sales and we will see corrections in the months to come. The Committee has a positive outlook of this year market development and, as announced, updates its annual sales forecast: in 2021, 1.756 milion passenger cars and light commercial vehicles will be sold which is 9.8% higher than previous year. This means, we have corrected our forecast from 2,1% to 9,8% increase.”
