France rebounding economy fueled the best selling month since 2009.

France

France rebounding economy fueled the best selling month since 2009 in June with a first half ending with a +6 percent and strong perspectives for the rest of the year.

Economic Outlook

France’s economy grew a seasonally adjusted 0.6% over the previous period in Q1 2015, marking the fastest pace in almost two years. The acceleration came on the back of strong growth in domestic demand, with particular dynamism in private consumption as households are benefiting from subdued inflationary pressures.

More recent data indicate that positive economic momentum has carried over into Q2 and the beginning of Q3, as industrial production grew at the fastest in three months in May and confidence among French firms reached a three-month high in July.

Meanwhile, traffic in some areas of the country, including France’s second-biggest city, Lyon, has been disturbed by hundreds of furious farmers who blocked access to highways and ports in the middle of July. The powerful agricultural lobby is asking for subventions to counterbalance the fall in prices for dairy and meat.

Market Outlook

In June 2015 according to data released by CCFA, the French Associations of Car Manufacturers, total new car passengers sold in France have been 225.638, up a robust 15.0% from the correspondent month last year, the best performance since 2010 and greatly contributing to the almost positive first half.

Indeed following for declining years, the first half was finally positive with total cars sold at 1.017.493, up 6.1% from 2014.

Competitive Arena

The market leader Renault has sold 53.471 vehicles in June, up 9.9% from last year with cumulative sales at 208.606, +6.8% and market share at 20.5%.

Peugeot in second sold 37.846 cars (+20.4%) with first half figures at 175.931 (+8.1%) while in third Citroen reported 24.045 sales (-3.5%) to which should be added those of DS (3.707) to have a pair comparison towards last year.

Leader of importers was as usual Volkswagen, fourth with 16.494 sales (+26.4%) followed by Dacia at 11.640 (+2.3%) and Ford at 8.889 (+9.9%).

As far as the Car Groups performance, the leader was Renault with 32.4% of market share, ahead of P.S.A. with 29.0%, Volkswagen Group with 12.5% and Ford with 3.9%

As far as best-selling models ranking, the Renault Clio led with 13.789 sales (-7.3%), followed by Renault Captur with 11.286 (+18.0%) and Peugeot 208 with 10.262 (+27.7%).
