Question – Is automotive still an investment vehicle?
Answer – The increase in foreign currency leads to an increase in cost inputs and therefore zero vehicle prices are increasing day by day. Of course, the increase in Ötv also triggers this increase. Automotive manufacturers are planning to switch to electricity within 2-3 years, and with this, the supply is also decreasing. At the same time, vehicle production is limited and logistics supply networks are slowing down due to the Pandemic. High vehicle prices cause car rental companies to increase their car parks to 5 years instead of selling after the age of 3, preventing vehicle supply to the market. On the other hand, the increase in interest rates creates a price increase in rising vehicles. For these reasons, in 2020; Consumers, whose income remains stable due to rapid price increases, turn to 2nd Hand. The high price increase and high demand made the vehicle buying and selling business attractive. As such, trading on the vehicle means cash. If we look at the numbers, the number of second hand vehicles sold seems to be around 7 million. It is estimated that this situation will continue to take shape in the short term, and second-hand vehicles will continue to be an investment tool.
