French Light Commercial Vehicle sales figures are very rare to come across, so when they are published it is well worth a full article. The market is up 9% over the first 3 months of the year at 110,396 registrations.
The best seller is not a surprise: the Renault Kangoo has been leading the ‘vehicules utilitaires’ ranking in France since the launch of the first generation in 1997. The current generation has been on sale since January 2008 and convinced 9,256 buyers over the period for a 8.4% market share.
The Citroen Berlingo takes the 2nd place, up from #3 in 2010, with 7,048 sales and 6.4%, just above the LCV version of the Renault Clio, down 1 spot in #2 with 6.2% of the market. The Fiat Ducato, #4, is the best selling foreign model at 6,378 units and 5.8%. The Renault Trafic is only 3 units below at 5.8% too, a full percentage point above its 2010 level. The only two other foreign models in the Top 15 are the Ford Transit (#9) and Mercedes Sprinter (#14).
