European Production By Brand : 2014/15


Excluding the former CIS nations (mainly Russia), European car production was just over 18 million in 2015, up 9%. Europe's improved market was the reason and all groups were up except Honda. The list below is for European production so plants anywhere else are not included.

VW Group: All were up and the best of the volume makers was Škoda.

Renault/Nissan Alliance: Nissan has had a good run in the region but stopped in 2015. It was Renault's turn to push things forward.

PSA Group: Citroën was down but flat if DS is included. Peugeot went well and helped the group to a 7.5% increase.

Daimler: Mercedes Benz was marginally up but the other two did well to create a 6.7% rise in volume.

BMW Group: Both BMW and MINI did OK for a 6.3% rise.

Ford: This brand is all on its own now but that didn't matter with production up 10.1%.

FCA: Otherwise known as the Fiat Group, it had a 31.7% increase, with Jeep leading the way.

GM Europe: Trying to become profitable is the goal for GM and it's getting there. Manufactured units were only up 6.1% but getting back into the black is the goal.

Of the others, Hyundai/Kia did nicely with a 12.4% lift in production, with both contributing equally. Then came the Tata Group. After years of strong increases, Land Rover went up 3.5%, with China production affecting Euro volume. Sleeping giant Jaguar stirred with a 36.4% jump. Combined they were up 9%. Finally at the bottom, Volvo and Honda were quiet.

Summary: Not a region that has much growth potential, relying on improved conditions in the region for much of its manufacturing volume increase.
