West European car sales 2017 by sector segmentaionSUV-Crossovers forecast to dethrone Golf-class in Europe this year

Long established autoindustry observers AID are now projecting that this year SUV-Crossovers could nudge aside West Europe’s long-leading market for Lower-Medium sector cars like Volkswagen’s Golf as the region’s biggest car segment

Europe’s 2017 electric car BEV market off to good start

West Europe’s electric car registrations (BEVs) got off to a good start. AID’s exclusively compiled electric car registration figures for January show a sharp rise of more than a half to some 9,299 units. It helped lift the region’s BEV sales share to 0.85 per cent, a near 0.3 percentage point gain on the same month last year, which clearly ranks as good news for the industry

Last year’s sales of Standard category cars rose by a trendbucking 10 per cent to 1.49 million units, boosting the sector share to 35.9 per cent, a new record for the sector, according to JADA numbers and AID research. Equally revealing, among last year’s top-five best selling cars were two hybrids. Apart from Toyota’s Prius in pole position, third slot in the league went to Toyota’s Aqua, the full hybrid version of a car sold in Europe as the Toyota Yaris. The two Toyota model’s were split by Honda’s N-Box kei-car.

Peter Schmidt Editor In Chief AID NewsletterOpel is not a basket case

"The mind boggles. GM’s renewed decision to rid itself of Opel Vauxhall doesn’t look clear cut and lacks logic. There are sufficient reasons to suggest that now is not a good time to offload something on the cheap that potentially still looks like a still appreciating asset rather than a growing liability. So no surprise then that cunning Carlos Tavares, who knows a bargain when he sees one, is now showing a serious interest in Opel. A turnaround expert made from the same wood as Fiat’s Marchionne and Renault/Nissan’s Carlos Ghosn, Carlos Tavares sees value and hidden strength where lesser autoindustry mortals would likely call the undertakers

Mitsubishi Outlander still leads Europe’s PHEV model sales league

It remains one of the oldest campaigners in this fast-expanding pack of plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), but the combined attractions of SUV-Crossover club membership, appealing performance and still tempting financial and other purchase incentives have again crowned Mitsubishi’s stalwart Outlander PHEV as West Europe’s top-selling PHEV for the second year running, according to exclusive AID compiled numbers

PHEVs remain out in front

AID compiled exclusive figures show that PHEVs still dominate Europe’s still tiny Plug-in market, and last year sold nearly four times faster than BEVs. The day that manufacturers of the pure electric cars (BEV) typified by Nissan’s Leaf or Tesla’s Model S may have been dreading has arrived: The fast-expanding new breed of Plug-in-hybrids (PHEVs), a sector still typified today by Mitsubishi’s still sector-dominating Outlander PHEV, is not only outselling electric cars, but last year’s PHEV sales in Western Europe also grew almost four times faster than sales of pure electric cars (BEVs), according to AID’s own data

Europe’s 2017 car market off to a flying start

West Europe’s car market has recorded the fastest start for eight years. AID’s provisional data reveals that some 1.1 million new cars were sold this January, thus topping last year’s same month sales by 9.4 per cent. Apart from the UK, where last month’s new car sales grew for yet another month, all of West Europe’s other major markets, on a similar upbeat note, experienced double-digit gains. However, this year’s flying start can be attributed at least partly to two extra working days in several markets, which couldn’t fail but put a more positive spin on this January’s turnout
