* See the Top 10 best-selling models by clicking on the title! *

At 108,308 units over the first 3 weeks of April, French new car sales seem to have stabilised around -5% year-on-year now that the comparison with the scrappage scheme-boosted first Quarter of 2011 has ended. Peugeot leads the brands ranking with 17.4% share (+7%) ahead of Citroen at 16.7% (+16%) and Renault at 15.1% (-15%). Follows VW at 8.3% (-15%), Ford at 5.3% (-8%) and Dacia at 3.9% (-28%). Notice Audi at #8 and 3.6%, up 4% on 2011.

Even though the market is still slightly down, the entire Top 5 best-selling models see their sales increase year-on-year. The Renault Clio is in the lead with 4,575 sales and 4.2% (+13%), followed by a Peugeot 207 in runout mode at 4,141 units and 3.8% (+5%) and the Citroen C3 with 4,098 units, up 20%.

The Peugeot 3008 climbs to a remarkable 4th position with 3,221 sales and 3% share: if it maintains this ranking until the end of the month it will be its highest month-end position ever in France, beating the 5th place it reached in May 2011. At #5 the Peugeot 308 delivers the best year-on-year increase in the Top 10 at +30% thanks to 3,200 units. Notice also the Dacia Duster at #10 but down 51% on April 2011.

    The remarkable sales performance of the 307 / 307 SW is long gone.
    The 308 has never been able to come close, not the least because the 3008 and 5008 were launched. Yet, the combined April numbers of 308 + 3008 results in 6400. This equals a solid #1 position.
