From June 4, until next day 13, the automotive industry returns to the fair environments with the celebration of the 24th edition of the Used and Pre-Owned Vehicle Show of Madrid in the Ifema pavilions, in the capital of Spain.
As has already been proven in previous crises, and in off-peak periods, the second-hand and pre-owned vehicle is the solution to the mobility problems of many people. Therefore, it is not uncommon that, after a pandemic that has not yet ended, used vehicle sales are in percentage terms well above new registrations.
Thus, the 153,000 units of second-hand and pre-owned vehicles sold between January and April represent a drop of 6.7% compared to the same months of 2019 (2020, of course, does not count). But it is that for example Das WeltAuto, the brand that includes the sale of used vehicles of the Volkswagen Group, already achieves sales figures, specifically 18,124 units, which already represent a 10.2% increase compared to its figures in 2019 .
That is why the celebration of the Used and Pre-Owned Vehicle Show, between June 4 and 13 at Ifema, in Madrid, is better than ever for a sector in full regeneration.
The contest, which will occupy pavilions 6 and 8 of the Ifema Fairgrounds in the Juan Carlos I Park, and promoted by the National Association of Vehicle Sellers (GANVAM), will celebrate its 24th edition, after not being able to be held last year for the pandemic.
Between June 4 and 13, more than 3,000 vehicles from brands and dealers such as ALDCarmarket, Flexicar, Automobiles Argüelles, Lexus Madrid, Cetin Autos, Deysa, Ford, CreditCars, Cars & Cars, Hermanos Viñaras, Grupo Talauto will be able to be viewed and purchased , Peugeot, Hyundai, Volkswagen or Audi.
The offer is very wide, since visitors who come to the Madrid VO Show during these ten days will be able to be interested in all the models in the market range, from “street” cars to the most ECO models (electric, hybrid, gas ), without forgetting of course Premium, sports, ‘kilometer 0’ and commercial vehicles.
VO sales on the rise
According to GANVAM data, the sale of second-hand and pre-owned vehicles continues to rise, and of course the year 2021 has started on the right foot, as sales of second-hand cars have reached a total of 616,441 units until April 2021 , which represents 32% compared to the same period of the previous year.
And it is that the brands mostly take an appointment like the VO Show very seriously.For example, Das WeltAuto, the brand of used vehicles of the Volkswagen Group, returns to the Show with an offer of more than 120 vehicles on display permanent and, for the first time, with an exclusive space for ZERO emissions vehicles with an ECO label, thus releasing its e-DasWeltAuto identity.
In this edition, Das WeltAuto will occupy half of Ifema’s Hall 8, in a stand of more than 3,300 square meters in which 11 Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle dealers will be represented.
