Passenger car registrations in the European Union jumped 12.2% year-on-year to 745,855 units in October 2022, the third consecutive month of growth, largely due to the low base of comparison from last year, when the semiconductor shortage hampered vehicle production. However, sales remained well below the October 2019 pre-pandemic levels of about 1.2 million units. Looking at the four largest EU markets, three of them posted double-digit gains: Germany (16.8%); Italy (14.6%); and Spain (11.7%). Elsewhere, the French market saw a more modest, but still solid performance (5.5%). Ten months into 2022, EU new car registrations remained in negative territory, down 8.1%, as recent improvements were not enough to offset losses cumulated from January to July this year. source: European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA)
