Europe Light Vehicle Sales Jaguar-XE_2016

Europe Light Vehicle Sales by brand. Statistics on Top 50. Mercedes and Fiat shine among the top 10 group reporting a cumulative double-digit performance. Jeep is the fastest growing brand in Europe while Lada is the top loser.

Market Outlook

Total light vehicle European sales in May had been 1.505.000 (cars + LCVs), down 1.0% from the correspondent month. However the year to date  sales had been up 3.2% at 7.7 million units.

Competitive Arena

All the Top 10 European brands are growing, considering that Citroen, the only one reporting a cumulative loss at May has disaggregated in several countries data from DS, now considered a “brand” rather than a version as it was until the end of 2014.

Two players are above all with Mercedes growing 12.8% at 376.480 vehicles year to date May, running towards its new all-time record volume in Europe and gaining a substantial advantage towards BMW and Audi.

The other brand in double-digit is Fiat, thanks to the launch of 500X, with cumulative sales at 402.368, +10.3% from the correspondent period last year.

Considering all the top 50 players and taking under consideration that a higher percentage increase (or loss) is more probable when base volume are lower, the best brand in absolute is Jeep, which success is fueled by the astonishing success of the compact SUV Renegade after the 2014 success of last generation of Grand Cherokee.

Other fast growing brands are Seat (+16.6%), Mini (+32.3%), Smart (+45.9%), Porsche (+47.7%), Lexus (+29.0%) and Isuzu (+35.8%),

As far as losers, they are led by the Russian Lada (-25.3%) and include Honda (-15.7%), Suzuki (-8.8%), Gaz (-36%) and obviously Chevrolet (-82.7%) escaped from western Europe.
