In November, EU* passenger car registrations recorded moderate growth (+1.4%) on a year earlier, reaching 953,886 units sold and marking the fifteenth consecutive month of growth. Looking at the largest markets, the demand increase was mainly led by the significant growth recorded in Spain (+17.4%), followed by the UK (+8.0%), and Italy (+5.0%), while Germany (-1.8%) and France (-2.7%) recorded a slight decline. Substantial growth posted by the new EU member states (+5.5%) partially explains last month’s positive outcome.
