Car Sales France By Brand : 2000-04

The 2004 Citroën Xsara Picasso

Sales were very consistent through this period, with the 2 million mark being passed in each year. The top three French brands held just under 60% of all sales, which was very high. VW had a poor run at this time and perhaps it needed help with it diesel engines but help was on its way (tongue in cheek). Fiat had a poor few years as did Rover which was running on empty.

Asian brands (salmon shaded below) generally did well in a country not that keen on them. Toyota has a plant there and no doubt that helped sway some French buyers. The MINI arrived and immediately was a hit.
