About This Statistic

The statistic shows selected car manufacturers' share of the passenger car market in Europe from January 2016 to August 2016, based on new registrations. The FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Group reached a market share of 6.8 percent.

Over the past decades, China has emerged as the main growth market for players in the global automobile industry, with car sales amounting to 24.6 million vehicles in 2015.

Car manufacturers' European market share

The Volkswagen Group held about a quarter of the European car market from January 2016 to August 2016. In light of the Volkswagen diesel scandal, the Volkswagen Group confirmed in October 2015 that more than ten million vehicles were affected by the scandal worldwide, around 2.8 million of which were sold to customers in Germany. It remains unclear if it is safe for the owners of affected vehicles to ignore the recall, if they will see a downgrade in their vehicles’ performance due to software adjustments - or if the vehicles will be fitted with a different engine version.

Second-placed PSA Group is headquartered in Paris, France. Along with fellow French car manufacturer Renault, PSA has a strong presence Europe: The two French automakers account for a European auto market share of almost 20 percent. These two groups share among them just over seven percent of the global passenger car production market share.
