In March 2022, passenger car registrations in the EU fell by -20.5% to 844,187 units. “The ongoing supply chain disruptions, further exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, negatively affected car production”, said ACEA. As a result, most countries recorded double-digit drops in sales, including the four largest markets: Spain (-30.2%), Italy (-29.7%), France (-19.5%) and Germany (-17.5%).
During the first quarter of 2022, new car registrations fell by 12.3% compared to the same period last year, counting 2,245,976 new passenger cars in total. All four of the major EU markets saw decreases: Italy (-24.4%), France (-17.3%), Spain (-11.6%) and Germany ( 4.6%).
