WESTERN EUROPE 
First Half passenger car sales history Western EuropeJune sees 5th West European car sales gain in first half

This June, despite there being at least one fewer working day in some countries, new car sales in Western Europe still topped last year’s same month levels by 1.4 per cent, according to provisional Acea compiled car sales numbers. June’s small advance in sales, the 5th gain in six months, brings West Europe’s cumulative car sales total to 7.8m after 6-months, up 3.7 per cent over last year’s comparative total

Peter Schmidt AID Newsletter Journal Report WarwickFuture today, Audi starts autonomous PR rides

"Driving along the autobahn between Munich and Ingolstadt, car drivers and their passengers are confronted by unfamiliar new and different looking traffic signs. But perhaps stranger still, apart from the new black and white traffic signs, drivers on this stretch are now sharing this extremely busy section of Germany’s autobahn with cars chauffeured by a computer rather than a driver like you or me

| FCA West European Market share historyWESTERN EUROPE 
Fiat Group, one of West Europe’s big gainers

Just as all winning streaks come to an end eventually, possibly the same can be said for a losing streak. That at least is the impression from Italy’s Fiat Group, which now stands out as one of the European continent’s biggest sales gainers. Expressed in cold numbers, Fiat Group’s first half car sales in Western Europe rose almost three faster than the overall car market. Moreover, this follows yet another faster than average 7.2 per cent sales surge in June

Europe's diesel car sales share hits lowest level since start of diesel emissions scandal

West Europe’s diesel car market was expected to have a difficult year because of the unrelenting anti-diesel campaign in the popular press. With seemingly non-stop flak-fire aimed at diesels it hardly comes as a surprise that growing numbers of Europe’s confused and increasingly anxious diesel car users, when changing their car, are reverting back to the comparative security of petrol powered cars

AID forecasts record 100,000 plus electric car sales in Western Europe this year

The take-up rate for pure electric cars in Europe, excluding plug-in hybrids, may still be a great deal slower than the industry had earlier expected, but despite the sector’s comparative snails’ pace rate of growth, the electric car industry may draw some comfort from AID’s latest prediction that this year’s electric car market in Western Europe is now forecast to breach the 100,000 level for the very first time, thus setting a new all-time record

UK Pick Up Sales new trendMore UK buyers gravitate towards butch Pick-ups

Ford’s F-Series Pick-Up, a stereotypical man’s motor in almost every sense, may be the single best-selling vehicle in the world - a view underlined by the realisation that in the five months to May this year a striking 352,000 were already snapped up by keen US buyers alone - but in Europe these butch Pick-Ups simply didn’t sell. Until now, that is.
