The French Light Commercial Vehicle market is the biggest in Europe and up 9% over the first 5 months of the year at 185,846 registrations. The Renault Kangoo is in pole position year-to-date, as it has been for the last 14 years, with 15,648 sales and 8.4%.
However, over the last 2 months (April and May), the Kangoo held 8.5% of the market with 6,392 sales, only 266 more than the Fiat Ducato at 6,126 units and an impressive 8.1% market share… The presence of a foreign model this high in the ranking is exceptional, French consumers being known for their chauvinism. The Ducato is now also #2 year-to-date with 12,504 sales and 6.7% as it just passed the Renault Clio, #3 at 12,316 units (6.6%).
