European new vehicles market fell 3% in October. Toyota and Renault-Nissan group double-digit lost pushed down the performance. Toyota has lost heavy in Russia, Germany, Italy, Belgium and others.

European Light Vehicles Market Outlook

The whole European market is slightly recovering following the sharp 2009 crisis. However the record volume, achieved at continental level in the 2011, when Russian and East markets had touched their top, is still far. Since 2011 the entire mediterranean zone is recovering with Portugal, Spain Greece and Italy back is fast growth this year, but the huge fall of Russia caused over 1.5 million sales lost not easy to be recovered.

Although the 2015 is projected at 18.5 million vehicles, over 0.6 million up from the previous year, representing the third region worldwide after China and North America, sales are over  half a million below the 2011 record.

In October European (from Portugal to Russia) light vehicles sales (cars + LCVs) had been 1.5 million, down 3.0% from the correspondent period last year, while the year-to-date figures are 15.63 million, up 3.8%.

Brands Performance

Although Volkswagen, the best-selling brand in Europe was down only 1.6% in October despite the deflagration of emission scandal,  October sales fall was caused by the double-digit lost reported for the second European group, the Renault-Nissan, falling 43.4% in Russia, where Autovaz, Nissan and Renault are the leaders.

The other losers had been Chevrolet, no more on sales in the West, Mitsubishi, down 19.0% and all Russian companies, like UAZ and Gaz Group.

Among the top 10 brands, Citroen and Toyota has lost in double-digit. Citroen data reflects the partial spin-off of DS sales after the recent decision to consider DS a stand-alone brand (but not in all countries. Why?). Toyota’s October performance was hit by Russia (-48.1%) but was negative also in Germany (-20.0%), Italy (-15.5%), Belgium (-22.3%) and Switzerland (-15.7%).
