A general summary shows that from the beginning of the year to the end of July, 141,990 new cars were delivered in Israel – a decrease of 21% compared to the first seven months of 2019. Analysis by brands shows that Hyundai, which has been leading the market for several years, is also the leader so far in 2020. With 21,674 new cars delivered this year. In second place is Toyota with 17,939 deliveries of new cars and in third place – Kia which delivered 17,326 cars. The controversy over luxury brands suggests that Audi is in first place with 2,443 dedications. In second place is Mercedes with 2,221 dedications followed by BMW with 1,441 dedications.
As revealed in “Calcalist”, last month was a particularly successful month for importers of luxury cars and supercars, those whose prices easily cross the threshold of one and a half million shekels. According to data from the Association of Car Importers, three Bentley cars (out of a total of 13 this year) were delivered last month, one Aston Martin (out of two delivered in Israel since the beginning of the year) and one Ferrari – the fifth to arrive in Israel in 2020.
