Effect "Coronavirus"? According to Paul Squires, president of the Anfia (the Italian supply chain and automotive) is: "The general slowdown in new car registrations this month - explained - in fact, he began to weigh the situation of crisis that Italy is experiencing, as a result of the emergency coronavirus. The difficulties reported by the dealers, in terms of the decrease of the on-site visits and orders, especially in the regions of the ‘red zone’, it will be reflected, in all probability, a further decline of the market, as portends the worsened consumer confidence".
The dealers confirm this, because according to their association, Federauto, the coronavirus has a clear impact in the performance of the registrations of the areas most directly invested in the health emergency, with the regions of Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna region, which respectively lost -20,9%, -19,54% and -19,56%. In particular, the difficulties in the movements and the limitations on work activities, commercial and social have led to drastic reduction in sales to private individuals fell more than the regional average in Lombardia (-22,9%) and Veneto (-21,6%), -18,7% in Emilia-Romagna.
And the worst is yet to come because according to a research of the Centro Studi Promotor, the effect of the coronavirus is incumbent, therefore, on the market of car and you will start to warn him in march. From the investigation of the Centro Studi Promotor of the end of February show that at the national level, 60% of operators expect sales to decline in the next three to four months, while at the end of January, the same percentage of operators expected the market stable or growing.
Everything seems to be still governed by the level of emissions: "it is clear - explain analysts DataForce - which is now the concentration of the market on cars with a lower environmental impact: in the first class of emission, the one facilitated by the incentives (CO2 than 70 g/km), in February registrations were up 600%. In the emission class, the intermediate, i.e. one that is not influenced by the incentives or penalized by the eco-malus, the sales have started to decline (-4,29%). Instead, in the category exceeding 160 g/km of CO2, the effect of the malus at the time of enrolment is made to feel, because it has been branded as a number of vehicles more than halved (-56%, amounting to over 13,000 units in less".
