Car Sales By Nation In Europe: 2012

This was not a good year for Europe and 2013 isn't that promising either. The continent is in financial pressure so decreasing sales are inevitable, even necessary. After all, you should only spend what you can afford. Below the chart shows growth as green and the reverse in yellow.

I divided it into west and east which shows the west is doing it tougher, because the east had its pain sooner and has now levelled off. The UK did well to increase, not something I expected. France and Italy took big hits in sales, as did both Portugal and Greece.
