Some 12,830 used cars were registered in Hungary in March, 8% more than in February and 22% more than in March last year, according to JóAutók.hu, based on information from DataHouse.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic, there has been less turnover in the import of used cars.
The reason for the surge in second-hand car imports is the decline in new car supply.
Due to the indirect effects of the war in Ukraine, the further aggravated shortage of parts and consumables generally increased the waiting time at dealerships, said Bertalan Halász, CEO of JóAutók.hu.
