|The Lancia Prisma|
Sales history of cars can be patchy. It can also vary if different sources are used to put a timeline of sales together. The sales I found changed dramatically form 1989 to 1990, as you will see when that is released in due course. It is put together with due diligence and the highest accuracy possible. Bearing that in mind....
The 1980's in Italy had a more settled feel to it. Renault was second for years, but then replaced by a resurgent Lancia thanks I believe to the Y10 model. Alfa Romeo fell away suffering financial problems and was bought by Fiat in 1986. It was then merged with Lancia.
The percentage of the top four on the extreme right column of the chart below remained relatively steady considering its fall in the previous two decades. The sales figures are in thousands.
