West European Quarterly Passenger Car Sales Movements 2013/2012

Largely thanks to a 16th successive rise in UK car sales, growing by a strong 13.4 per cent last month, West Europe’s outlook for carmakers suddenly looks less gloomy. But the timing for a genuine and lasting recovery still seems almost anybody’s guess.
