France Car Sales By Brand : 2015

The Citroën C3 found over 56,000 homes in France and came in 6th

Sales were up a solid 6.8%, the best since 2011. Renault and Peugeot did well, but Citroën and Reggie's Dacia didn't. A case of swings and roundabouts for the full year. In December French brands did much better as did the whole market, up 12.5%.

VW managed a modest increase although a it had a poor December of -15%.  Further down, Jeep had a stellar year, as it has across Europe. One success for Sergio at least. Jaguar also roared thanks to the arrival of the XE late in 2015. In December Jag was up over 200% and the new XE deserves to do well.
