West European Q3 2017 passenger car sales analysis

West Europeís September car sales, held back by one fewer working day in most of the regionís 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 Europeís gains after nine months of otherwise growing new car sales to 2.8 per cent. Septemberís drop in sales, only the second sales dip this year, brings West Europeís cumulative car sales total to 11m units after 9-months, according to AIDís own provisional car sales data

What a difference a day makes. 

Last monthís new car sales in Western Europe fell marginally below last yearís comparative same month levels. 

However, Septemberís slightly lower sales turnout is due almost entirely to the loss of one working day and does not necessarily attest to an imminent spell of cooling customer demand. 

Official car sales figures from KBA and SMMT respectively for last month show that both Germany and the UK, two of the regionís biggest major markets, posted declines. 

Thatís followed by notably lower September car sales in a further nine of the regionís other markets.
