W.European car sales Quarterly sales history up to Q1 2018

March car sales in Western Europe fell by a comparatively steep 6 per cent, but the dip in what ranks as one of the biggest car sales months in an average year is due mainly to one off special factors

Foremost among them, in some of the regionís biggest markets, thatís Germany and the UK, March had two working days less this year than last year. 

Thatís followed by the loss of at least one working day in other major markets such as France and Italy for example.

March car sales fell in nine of the 17 markets tracked by AID every month.
