New car registrations in European countries through 2020

Germany remained the largest passenger car market in 2020: German customers bought some 2.9 million units that year. The European passenger car market was put under pressure amid the coronavirus pandemic with the largest national markets seeing significant declines in sales compared to the previous year. Many countries had seen a resurgence of sales in June and July, thanks in part to government incentives. However, a "second wave" towards the end of 2020 prompted strict containment measures in some countries, reducing December passenger car activity. The largest drops in sales in 2020 were recorded in Bulgaria, Croatia, Portugal, and Spain.
