4 October through 7 October 2012 - Santander, Spain - The 2nd Santander Car Show is underway.
The main car dealerships of Santander and surrounding region exhibit the latest models of the makes they represent.
Car sales reflect the recession in which Spain is mired and according to some car salespeople, they have now reached their lowest point since the start of the financial crisis. A generous subsidies plan by the government (the plan PIVE, which offers a subsidy of 2000 Euros to citizens willing to scrap an older vehicle and purchase an energy-efficient new car) and in many cases additional discounts by dealers, don't seem to be enough of an incentive to reverse the trend.
