 EUROPE HYBRID SALES TREND  | AID DATA
Western EUrope Hybrid car sales H1 2018 In Europe Hyundai-Kia has joined Toyota-Lexusís lone HEV flight path 

Itís not imagination. AID compiled data reveals that Britainís already crowded urban and rural roads now appear packed more than ever with latest design SUV-Crossovers. So much so in fact that during this yearís first half a forever growing avalanche of trendy SUV-Crossovers alone was responsible for almost four-in-ten of the new cars hitting UK roads for the first time. This on-going rate of breakneck sales expansion crowned SUV-Crossovers as the UKís way and ahead biggest car sector, according to AID compiled car sales data

Ford Market share takes a huge plungeVolkswagen takes UKís August car sales crown, Ford slips to new all-time low

Anyone familiar with the UK car market will expect Ford to be the undisputed market leader. Moreover, the norm, dating back to time immemorial Fordís most popular models continue to dominate the UKís list of best-sellers, right? Wrong. This August marks the third consecutive month that Ford was outsold by the Volkswagen brand

AID compiled figures reveal that new car sales this August went through the roof. Thatís the initial cheery message from last monthís car sales results from the vast majority of West European car markets.

Q1 2018 diesel car sales Western Europe data and trendsAs bad as it gets for Europeís diesel car market?

Latest data, compiled by AID every month, suggests that West Europeís badly hammered diesel car market, while still weak, is no longer deteriorating at the speed seen during last year


  | Diesel cars out of favour, but have we seen the worst of the plunge? 
 
| Diesel appears to be undergoing a lull at present

Europe electric car registrations October 2017July scorcher for West Europeís summer temperatures and BEV sales 

Sweltering temperatures in much of July were echoed to an extent by hot buying intensity from some of the regionís electric car buyers. AIDís exclusive own figures show that West Europeís July market for pure electric cars (BEVs) grew by almost 40 per cent. Thatís partly thanks to strong respective sales gains of 35.8 per cent and 25.6 per cent in both Germany and Norway, now two of West Europeís leading BEV markets. But thatís not all

| Tesla Q2 volume almost equal to Jaguar

Peter Schmidt AID Newsletter Journal Report WarwickWLTP | Sea change ahead

"At long last, the change-over to a more realistic value for the fuel-consumption of new cars is not coming a moment too soon. Starting tomorrow, September 1 2018, all new cars sold in EU Europe must come with an official fuel-economy value measured under the new WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure) method. Thatís a great victory for common sense. The previously provided fuel-economy value, measured under the ancient NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) scheme, was not worth the paper it was written on"

AID investigates this yearís Japanese car sales trends and finds that Toyotaís home market still stands out as the worldís way and ahead biggest market for petrol-electric hybrid (HEVs) cars. Put into perspective, this first half Japanís HEV market was more than three-times the size of its direct US HEV equivalent, which like Japan and Europe remains dominated by Toyota Group products
