European best selling car brands ranking Porsche-Macan_2015

European best selling car brands ranking in January 2015 shows Fiat gaining one spot while Volkswagen rides in a race a part with a huge gap over the “normal” brands fighting in the ground.

On monthly basis, focus2move reports on full European light vehicles sales –so, car passengers plus light commercial vehicles – including the entire continent, for a total of 44 countries (see the list below). We are the only firm to provide data on such a perimeter and these reports must be considered the most effective statistics on the real automotive business trend in Europe.

ACEA data, published separately for cars and LCVs, are used by European press to measure the sector trend in Europe, not considering that all OEMs have now in place organizations including Russia, Turkey and Ukraine (just mentioning the largest countries).

In January 2015, according to data released by all Car Manufacturers local Associations and by ACEA, the total Light Passengers Vehicle (cars + light commercial vehicles) sold in Europe (44 countries) have been 1.283.000 million, up 1.8% from the correspondent month last year.

Is Fiat finally back? In January the answer was YES, with the Italian brand sales fueled by the launch of the Small SUV, 500X, produced in Italy, only the fourth model launched by Fiat in the last 4 years. Brand rose 6.5% outpacing Mercedes in 6th place.

6.4% was the year-on-year scored by Volkswagen as well. Nothing comparable if considering the German brand boomed at 12.6% of market share further gaining space to the rivals.

The battle for the second place between Renault and Ford started again after the French was in 2014. In January less than 1.000 units split the two.

A double digit start of the year was performed by Mercedes (7th with 61.983 sales, +11.6%), Nissan (10th with 57.564 units, +18.4%), Seat (17th with 25.013 sales, +11.2%), Mitsubishi (21st with 15.647 units, +31.1%), Mini (24th with 11.391 sales, +21.6%), Smart (26th with 6.653 units, +36.6%), Jeep (27th with 6.422 units, +131.0%), Porsche (28th with 5.519 units, +42.6%) and Lexus (31st with 4.010 units, +31.7%).
