GERMANY  
VW market share demise 20 year record lowVW’s home car sales share slumps to new 20-year low

Early days, given that it wasn’t until the first week of August that Volkswagen unveiled details of its domestic diesel scrappage incentives. KBA figures for August reveal that the Volkswagen brand stands out as the biggest notable loser in Germany’s August car market. Although Germany’s August new car market grew by a modest 3.5 per cent, home sales of the Volkswagen brand fell by a contrasting 10.9 per cent. In contrast, with few notable exceptions such as Ford, all of Volkswagen’s main rivals appear to have stolen sales from its battered main rival

Toyota hybrids still reaping benefits of dieselgate scandal  

The comparatively sharp and sudden swing in Europe’s diesel car sales fortunes - with the pendulum swinging this time into the wrong direction - is deeply gratifying for Toyota’s European car sales operation. That’s because hordes of today’s jittery European diesel car drivers appear to be dumping their newly demonised diesels for what many see as the next best future-proof alternative on Europe’s fuel-economy front

Record month at home for VW's electric car sales  

Never before in Germany’s short electric car (BEVs) history has Volkswagen found as many willing home buyers for its BEVs as this August. Buoyed expectedly by VW’s sky-high €11,760 domestic subsidy for anyone willing to scrap an old diesel in exchange for a new e-Golf BEV, Volkswagen’s August electric car sales in Germany zoomed to 539 units, according to official German KBA car registration numbers

Optimism over economy adds heat to West Europe’s new car market  

AID reports on the underlying positive change in this year’s West European new car market. Renewed car sales growth in August, which saw a notably faster than earlier expected 4.9 per cent rate of advance, adds further credence to the upbeat view that West Europe’s underlying car sales recovery still appears more buoyant than earlier anticipated

Germany’s August diesel car share slumps to lowest level for decade and a half  

Germany’s shrinking diesel car sales share in August, giving a foretaste of what could be in store for the remaining months of this year, slumped to just 37.7 per cent according to latest KBA data. 
Ignoring the one-off statistical distortions caused by Germany’s 2009 scrappage incentive boom, fuelled by spiralling demand for the cheapest petrol powered cars in Germany, this year’s August diesel car sales share marks the sector’s lowest ebb since April 2003

Turkey’s car market standing up to fallout from last year’s failed coup shock  

With just over a third of a million new cars sold in the seven months to July this year, today’s new car market in Turkey is about the same size as the combined sales in both Belgium and Luxembourg. But that’s where the similarities end. Unlike Belgium, a mature car market, Turkey - with a population of almost 80m – is expected to see significant further growth in future car sales.

Diesel car market pauses after losing sales share for 18 months running  

Is this a temporary blip or the first sign of a slowing deterioration in European diesel car sales? That is the question facing market observers, who are wondering whether Europe’s badly battered diesel car market is simply drawing breath after the expected and continuing steep loss of earlier held market share since the VW diesel scandal first broke with devastating effect in September 2015
