The Spanish production of vehicles he gradually recovered . After a decline in the manufacture of 6% in the first six months of the year, the increases recorded in the months of summer make that accumulated during the first eight months of 2019 reach 1.893.100 units, which represents a decrease of 4% compared with the same period of the previous year.

The Spanish factories also suffer from the difficulties that cross the european markets, whose enrollments fall, but are showing more resistance in production that the countries of our environment, that reduce most of its manufacturing in the year. The adaptation of factories to the new models beginning to bear fruit, and all this taking into account that, since July, leaves a model at least since the Spanish factories.
