Over the first 17 days of July, the French new car market is up a splendid 10% year-on-year. Keep in mind these intermediate figures are always to be taken with a grain of salt as some manufacturers such as the Renault Group traditionally back-load their month in France, realising the majority of their sales over the last week and days of the month. In this context, Peugeot (-2%) and Citroen (+9%) are both above Renault (-3%) which itself is only less than 200 sales above Volkswagen (+10%). Toyota (+32%), Dacia (+47%), Ford (+28%) and Fiat (+45%) shoot up among the Top 10 brands. Model-wise, it’s a surprise: the tremendously successful new gen Peugeot 3008 spectacularly takes the lead of the sales charts thanks to deliveries up 116% over the previous gen. The Citroen C3 (+16%) and Peugeot 208 (-12%) complete a very unusual podium. It would be however extremely surprising if the 3008 managed to hold onto the top spot until the end of the month. Notice also the VW Polo up 35% to #4, the Citroen C4 Picasso up 27% to #6 and the Dacia Sandero up 73% to #8. The traditional leader, the Renault Clio, is stuck at #7 for now.

    1. Absolutely Rick – intermediate rankings are always biased against Renault who waits until the last minute each month to register all their cars…
