This time of the year is normally a strong sales period for new cars, but figures from importers Auto-Schweiz show new car registrations are down two thirds from last year at the same time.

The Swiss Car Dealers Association says it believes 25% fewer cars will be sold this year – and that’s assuming a pick up in the second half of the year. A spokesman says that may be optimistic and the low sales numbers could mean the end of several garages.
