If anyone can, Carlos can

"The track record of mergers and acquisitions in Europe’s auto industry in general is not one that the industry would choose to boast about. But then again, whether through luck or good judgement, some have a significantly better track record than others. Today’s issue is whether Carlos Tavarez with his proven golden touch will succeed where others have blatantly failed"

October sees 4.6% rise in W.Europe’s car sales

For most of continental Europe, if not for the UK, this October new passenger cars were still flying off dealership premises. However, pulled down by yet another steep 12.2 per cent dive in the UK’s rapidly cooling new car market, October’s new car sales in Western Europe still topped last year’s same month levels by just 4.5 per cent. Without the UK, new car sales in the remaining West European car market rose 8 per cent in October and 4.8 per cent in the ten months to date, according to provisional AID figures

Diesel storms prompt consumer longings for petrol safe haven  

AID compiled car sales statistics reveal that in much of Western Europe demand for new diesel cars is continuing the seemingly inexorable slide down the slippery slope. During this year’s July to September third quarter, West Europe’s diesel car sales share had slipped to 43.5 per cent

Global car sales dynamo slowing  

The global car market’s seemingly inexorable march to higher and yet higher annual sales, which stumbled only briefly during this past financial crisis, remains on course for yet another year of growth. However, if AID’s latest pulse-sensing at the nine months stage is any guide, this year’s global car sales growth will be little more than half of last year’s level

West Europe’s 9-months BEV sales already exceed full year 2016 total  

More pure electric cars have already been sold so far this year than the whole of last year. In Western Europe, with just three months left to the end of the year, the electric car industry has already broken all previous sales records, registering a total of 96,882 BEVs so far this year, already marginally up on full year 2016 sales, according to AID’s own exclusive numbers.

In Europe Tesla just keeps climbing, but second glance reveals less rosy picture  

During the nine months to September this year, sales of Tesla’s highly successful Model S and X in Western Europe may still be trailing Renault’s ZOE in pole position, or for that matter the second and third placed BMW i3 and Nissan Leaf, but in West Europe’s BEV car sales league the Tesla brand already ranks as Europe’s number two

New passenger car sales fell by 2.8% in Western Europe last month  

West Europe’s September car sales, held back by one fewer working day in most of the region’s markets, fell 2.8 per cent to 1.36m units. The expected setback, dragged down particularly by a near 10 per cent sales dip in the UK, cuts West Europe’s gains after nine months of otherwise growing new car sales to 2.8 per cent. September’s drop in sales, only the second sales dip this year, brings West Europe’s cumulative car sales total to 11m units after 9-months, according to AID’s own provisional car sales data
