New car sales in Europe are up 5% year-on-year in January to 967,778 registrations, meaning the European market has now been up for 5 consecutive months after lodging a 6th year in a row of decline in 2013. Would this be the end of the tunnel for European car sales? Only a brands ranking is available for now, I will publish a models ranking as soon as it becomes available. The entire brands podium performs better than the market with Volkswagen in the lead by far at 122,649 sales (+8%) followed by Ford at 67,043 and Peugeot at 61,411 (+9% each).

  1. Toyota will be in Top 10 in Europe, and Fiat will quit it ! Dacia is above Seat forever I’m sure.

    Bravo PEUGEOT ! A remarkable brand.
