In 2022, Toyota topped the list of most passenger car new registrations in Spain. The Japanese car brand recorded some 73,500 unit sales that year. SEAT, which had been the market leader until 2021, came sixth in the rankings. The most registered SEAT models were SEAT Arona and SEAT Ibiza, both exceeding 11,000 registrations during 2022.
Germany: Europe‘s indisputable car manufacturer
Fourth in this list is Volkswagen. The German car manufacturer VW Group held the largest market share of passenger cars in Europe as of December 2021, taking up 25 percent of the total market. Moreover, Germany was the European country that most recorded passenger car registrations, with nearly 2.65 million new cars on the country’s roads in 2022. The popularity of cars in Germany comes as no surprise, since the European country houses a few of the largest automobile groups in the continent.
The slump of diesel engines
According to the latest studies, Europe has been experiencing a shift in consumer behavior when purchasing a car. This is particularly visible in the preferred type of engine that the Europeans tended to acquire in recent years. Sales of diesel models have been recording a downtrend since 2013 in all European countries, presumably explained by the 2015 diesel scandal and subsequent discussions surrounding health and environmental impacts of the fuel type.
