French Cars Market

French Cars Market in August advanced recovering the July shortfall. Peugeot was overtaken by Renault on top of the list while the Dacia Sandero jumped in second position.

Market Outlook

The contentious labor reform bill was enacted into law in August by President Hollande after months of street protests.

Owing in part to disruptions caused by the massive strikes against the labor reform, revised GDP figures showed that the economy grew at a flat rate in annual terms in Q2. The latest economic data suggest that the economy has since lost steam.

Meantime, French vehicles sales in August improved moderately, recovered partially the July slowdown.

According to data released by the C.C.F.A, the French Associations of Car Manufacturers, new car passenger’s sales in August had been 98.208, up 6.7%.

Year to date total car passenger’s sales had been 1.333.613, up 6.1%.
