Car Sales France By Brand : 2010-14

The Nissan Qashqai has sold well in France

The car market in France has been subdues for the last few years. Seeing as the big three French car makers rely so heavily on local support, it has hit them. Added to that they have collectively slipped just below 50% of total sales. Renault had 40% of sales in 1980, 30% in 1994 and now under 20%. That has been a common pattern for many top selling makes in Europe.

VW sales held up well in a difficult market. They must have some very good diesels to do that. Renault's Dacia established itself as a popular brand at this time. Toyota held its sales volume but was outdone by its rival Nissan who overtook them. US duo Ford and Opel didn't do nearly so well.
