West European Passenger car sales 2007 - 2016

New car sales last year returned comfortably to the highest level since the beginning of the global financial crisis, boosted strongly by healthy car sales growth in all but two of the regionís markets monitored every month by AID market observers. December saw the 38th sales gain in the past 40 months

Testament to the marketsí robust good health, and despite one fewer working day in several markets, Decemberís new car sales in Western Europe still rose by a lively 2.2 per cent, buoyed by markedly better than expected car sales growth in the vast majority of regional markets. With no detectable heat loss, only the UK and the Netherlands did not record higher December sales. 

Provisional AID compiled statistics show that Decemberís notably better than expected turnout helped lift West Europeís new car sales for the whole of last year by 5.8 per cent to just a touch under 14 million units, the way and ahead best full-year result since pre-crisis 2007. Last yearís new car sales fell in only two of the 17 markets tracked by AID every month
