The basic trend is expected to be continued SUV-isation (also the Kia Picanto city car is getting a jacked-up crossover spin-off) as well as significant investment in electrical versions, proof which could be seen this week with the statement by VW that it had put on hold sales of the Golf GTE plug-in crossbreed, as manufacturing might not stay on top of demand. In November in 2014, sales of cars qualified for the federal government's plug-in car grant increased 53.7% versus the exact same month in 2016, from 2,482 to 3,814, against a decrease in overall car sales of 11.2%.
