The Light Commercial Vehicle market is down 9% year-on-year in France in October to 35,096 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 322,306 units, down 8% on 2011 but still Europe’s biggest LCV market. The Renault Kangoo is down to 8.1% share at 2,854 sales this month, with the year-to-date total standing at 31,338 units and 9.7%. It is followed by the Renault Clio at 6.2%. The Citroen Berlingo is up one spot on September to land on the podium with 6.1% share vs. #5 and 5.3% year-to-date.
Although down one spot to #4, the Renault Master is still above its 2012 year-to-date level at 6% share thanks to 2,100 sales, ahead of the Renault Trafic at 5.6%. The Peugeot 208 ranks 8th, the VW Crafter is up to #24 vs. #33 year-to-date, the Opel Combo is up to #33 vs. #45 ytd and the Ford Ranger up to #36 vs. #52. Given data released by the CCFA only takes into account year-to-date sales, the Dacia Dokker doesn’t appear in the ranking yet as it has sold less 116 units so far, but expect it to make a thunderous entrance in the next few months…
