New car sales in France are up 2% year-on-year so far in May after 22 days, and as usual Peugeot starts on top with 17,181 sales (+6%) ahead of Renault at 16,230 (+26%) and Citroen at 13,990 (+2%) but Renault will most likely reclaim the leadership by the time the month comes to an end as the manufacturer traditionally has back-loaded months. Notice also Dacia up 11% in 5th place and Opel up a brilliant 24% at #9. The Renault Clio is impressively already #1 with sales up 25% to 5,125 units vs. 4,266 for the Peugeot 208, down a harsh 27%.

The Peugeot 308 shines thanks to the arrival of the station wagon, up 88% on the previous generation one year ago in third position with 4,015 sales, for now above the Citroen C3 (+76%) and Renault Scénic (+52%) both performing extremely well also. The Peugeot 2008 ranks 6th and could deliver a third consecutive Top 5 ranking by the end of the month. The Citroen C4 Picasso is up 68% and the VW Golf is the best-selling foreign model so far in May…

  2. BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer said recently, that there are huge price wars going on in countries like France and Spain (among others). He said BMW and Mini have no plans in participating in this fight as profit is more important than market share. So he expects market shares (especially for Mini) in France to drop.

  3. Guess it’a matter of time for PSA to announce an extra shift for the 308.

    Also curious to see which manufacturer will be first to copy Peugeot’s 20(0)8 en 308 dash layout
