伊斯坦布尔,6月23日(新华社电)——周一,埃尔德姆·苏鲁抵达土耳其最大城市伊斯坦布尔的一家高档汽车画廊,计划购买一辆现货汽车,以应对新冠肺炎疫情。


然而,他被告知,在这座城市亚洲一侧的Acibadem附近的画廊里已经没有新车了,而且最近的交货时间至少要晚两个半月。


大多数新车和二手车上都贴出了“售罄”的纸条,价格在2.2万美元到7.3万美元之间。


据行业代表称,土耳其汽车行业6月份正经历一个繁荣时期,销量同比增长120%。


美术馆的销售总监Ayhan Serhan Atasoy告诉新华社,现在每个人都想买一辆车,因为担心被感染,他们不想再使用公共交通工具了。


Atasoy说:“我在汽车行业已经工作20年了,但我还没有看到销量有这么大的增长。”


然而,据这位主管说,在3月到6月的隔离期间,美术馆的销售额下降了50%。


但是,当政府在6月1日放宽了对新冠肺炎的限制后,人们利用银行的低利率涌入汽车展厅,他继续说。


结果,他的画廊里的二手车在15天内就卖光了,他的团队开始难以满足顾客对新车的需求。


阿塔索伊说:“现在那些购买了一辆新车的人,必须等上至少两个半月才能拿到他们的车,因为我们正在向国外的工厂提交订单,等待它们送到日本。”


他补充说:“这个过程更简单、更快,但由于大流行,一切都慢了下来。”


与此同时,苏禄对新华社表示,他想买辆车,和家人一起回土耳其南部的老家过暑假。由于担心感染冠状病毒,他们不愿乘坐飞机。


“到目前为止,我已经参观了很多汽车画廊。结果总是一样的。我找不到任何可以立即送达的,”他说。


他还关注了网上的二手车广告,注意到大多数时候二手车都是立即出售的。“你连想都不想的机会都没有。”


该画廊的销售人员塞米赫•埃鲁塞尔迪(Semih Eryukseldi)表示,由于需求依然过高,而新车又缺货,二手车的价格一直在持续上涨。


“一些二手车的价值已经超过了新车,”Eryukseldi告诉新华社。


根据土耳其汽车工业协会的数据,尽管出现了疫情,但汽车出口仍是该国出口的最大贡献,在今年前五个月占14.2%的份额。该行业仅在5月份就实现了12亿美元的出口。

ISTANBUL, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Erdem Sulu arrived in an upscale car gallery in Turkey's biggest city Istanbul on Monday with plans to buy an off-the-shelf car over concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, he was told that no new car left in stock of the gallery in the Acibadem neighborhood on the Asian side of the city, and the closest delivery time was at least two and half months later.

The "sold out" notes were seen posted on most of the new and second-hand cars, with prices varying between 22,000 U.S. dollars and 73,000 dollars.

The automotive sector in Turkey is experiencing a boom in June with sales jumping by 120 percent when compared to the same period the previous year, according to sector representatives.

Ayhan Serhan Atasoy, director of sales for the gallery, told Xinhua that everyone wants to buy a car these days, as they do not want to use public transportation anymore over the concerns of getting infected.

"I have been working in the automotive sector for 20 years, and I haven't seen such a big increase in sales," Atasoy said.

During the quarantine period between March and June, however, the sales in the gallery decreased by 50 percent, according to the director.

But, when the government eased COVID-19 restrictions on June 1, people taking advantage of low-interest rates of the banks flocked into car galleries, he continued.

As a result, second-hand cars were sold out in almost 15 days at his gallery, and his teams started having difficulties in meeting the demands of their customers for new cars.

"Now those who purchased a brand-new car, have to wait for at least two and half months to get their vehicles, as we are submitting the orders to the factories abroad and wait for their deliveries to the country," Atasoy said.

"The process was simpler and faster, but due to the pandemic, everything is slowed down," he added.

Sulu, meanwhile, told Xinhua that he wanted to buy a car to go to his hometown in southern Turkey with his family to spend the summer. They do not want to take a plane over fears of coronavirus.

"I have visited many car galleries so far. The result was always the same. I couldn't find any with immediate delivery," he said.

He also followed online ads for second-hand cars, noting that most of the time they are sold instantly. "You don't even have a chance to think twice."

The prices of second-hand cars have been continuously increasing as the demand remains too high and new cars are out of stock, according to Semih Eryukseldi, a salesperson for the gallery.

"The values of some of the second-hand cars have already surpassed those of the new ones," Eryukseldi told Xinhua.

According to Turkey's Automotive Industry Association, automotive exports are the largest contributor to national exports of the country with a 14.2 percent share during the first five months of this year, despite the pandemic. The industry accomplished 1.2 billion dollars of export in May alone.
