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

Peter Schmidt AID Newsletter Journal Report WarwickOctober’s West European car market still tells upbeat tale

"Contrary to expectations, and with just two remaining months to the end of this year, there was no detectable heat loss in October. If anything, October car sales figures out early next week are expected to show a comfortable upturn in sales. October’s better than expected sales turnout, coming in the wake of a 2.8 per cent drop in September, supports the view that West Europe’s new car market still tells an upbeat tale. For the glass half-empty automotive forecasting community, which, at the start of this year predicted largely unchanged car sales for this year, West Europe’s car market has been doing rather well

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 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

Europe’s BEV picture brightens  

In what generally ranks as the most significant holiday month of the year, typified more often than not by dealers’ deserted car showrooms, August still stands out as this year’s third best sales month for electric cars in (BEVs) Western Europe. The lively rate of growth seen of late in much of Europe, and this August in particular, gives rise to the more upbeat view that from now on electric cars in Europe could sell in higher numbers than forecasters in and out of the industry had earlier predicted

In spite of this year’s third monthly gain in a row, however, commentators remain unsure as to whether Audi - for the whole of this year - will be strong enough to dislodge Mercedes and BMW from their newly gained first and second position in China’s still buzzing prestige sector market. In China, at this year’s eight months stage, Audi still trails behind Mercedes and BMW, albeit by a gradually shrinking margin

VW’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

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

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.
