MADRID (Reuters) -- Spanish new-car sales rose by 21 percent in 2015 to 1.03 million, vehicle manufacturers' association Anfac said on Monday.
Registrations increased by 21 percent to 88,609 in December, Anfac said.
A Spanish government-backed subsidy scheme to boost new vehicle acquisitions has helped spur purchases over the last two years. In November, the government said it planned to renew the scheme for the eighth time until the middle of this year.
Under the scheme, owners who scrap their cars and buy a new one get 2,000 euros, half of which is provided by the government and half from the carmaker.
