The country is the second most developed market in this sense at a European level, after Germany, and the 8th country at a global level.  
More importantly, Spain is the 1st country for the manufacturing of industrial vehicles, having 17 manufacturing plants; our team of Spanish lawyers can provide legal advice on the regulations addressed to the automotive industry. Those who want to start a company that sells motor vehicles in Spain should also consider the following:
