Spain among Europe‘s biggest car manufacturers

Spain ranked second on the production list of passenger cars in Europe in 2018. The German car manufacturer VW Group, however, held the largest market share of passenger cars in Europe as of February 2019, taking up 24.4 percent of the total market. SEAT is a part of the Volkwagen Group.

Diesel engines on a decline

According to the latest studies, Europe has been experiencing a shift in consumer behavior when purchasing a car. This is particularly visible in diesel engines, presumably explained by the 2015 diesel scandal and subsequent discussions surrounding health and environmental impacts of the fuel type. Sales of diesel models have been recording a downtrend since 2013 in all European countries.
