european car sales down for almost all except fiat

euro car sales up to end of june 2008


check out the right hand column (year to date percentage change) and you'll see fiat are one of the few brands to actually have a year on year sales increase. sure its a very small increase compared to nissan, mini and jag but its a lot better than the majority who are losing sales year on year.

alfa romeo sales are down 34%, they're the worst performing brand in europe (again).

Re: european car sales down for almost all except fiat

dacia sales vols are so low that it only takes a small increase to get a big percentage on paper.

if you sell one per month, and then start selling 2, you've had a 100% increase.

the EU market as a whole is down 2.7% YTD, which is a very big deal if you compare it to the consistent growth of the last few years. markets are shrinking everywhere, recession is here.

Look out for sales and lower prices for cars already in stock I guess!

Jaguar is the one that surprised me - up 15% (YTD) and up 31% compared to monthly figure a year ago.

How does the Dacia Logan MCV (big station wagon) sell in UK?

I mean, I read very optimistic reviews when the car was released ("basic trim, lack of any luxury but very practical cargo-mover" etc.), but I do not see many of these on the road where I live...
