Auto market: sales of new cars go up in November

Good news, sales of new vehicles are on the rise again in November! However, they are still quite low.

For more than two years, the automotive industry has not really been in top form. And there are many reasons for this. First, the Covid-19 pandemic, which led to a drop in sales due to the closure of factories and concessions. But we also think of the shortage of semiconductors, as well as the rise in the price of raw materials. As a result, delivery times are getting longer and prices are increasing, which does not really encourage customers to buy new cars. Moreover, the malus and the increasingly strict environmental standards do not have much either. However, it seems that we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, while the market is doing a little better.

A slight increase

Indeed, according to the latest figures published by the Automotive Platform (PFA) New car sales picked up slightly in November. Please note, this of course remains very contained, while it is around 9.81% compared to the same period in 2021. In concrete terms, 133,961 registrations were recorded throughout the country. over the past month. For comparison, 160,000 cars had been sold in November 2019, before the start of the pandemic. But this improvement is a pleasure to see, and is explained in particular by a shortage of semiconductors which is beginning to ease a little. Results, registrations are accelerating.

not all equal

However, you can imagine that not all manufacturers are in the same boat. Stellantis and Renault indeed fell by 5.22 and 2.44% in November, while other manufacturers managed to hold their own. This is particularly the case for Toyota, which posted an increase of 41%, 34%. For its part, the BMW-Mini group saw its sales increase by 22.69%, while Volkswagen grime of 24.08%, which is rather promising. Hopefully this trend will continue over the next few months!
