First Half passenger car sales history Western Europe

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

Despite Juneís apparent sharp slowing in advance, the underlying health of Europe's car market still appears to be a great deal better than could have been expected as recently as three months ago.

At half-time West Europeís car market has grown 3.7 per cent, keeping autoindustry hopes alive that for the whole of this year sales will comfortably breach the 14 million level, likely reaching between 14.2m and 14.4m units, according to AIDís latest forecast.

In spite of Juneís working day handicap in some of the regionís markets such as Germany, most countries still reported higher June sales and this yearís first half.

In June, thatís fourteen of the regionís eighteen markets. Only the UK, Eire and Finland did not manage to improve on last yearís first-half sales.
