Spain: number of registered passenger cars from 1990 to 2017

Spain has one of the largest passenger car stocks in the European Union, with approximately 23.5 million cars registered. This was lower than, for example, Germany, which featured around 46.5 million passenger cars in 2017.

The Spanish automotive market

Spain ranked second on the list of car manufacturers in Europe in 2018. In that year, around 2,267,396 passenger cars were produced in Spain, compared to the 1,763,000 cars that were produced in France. One of the main drivers behind Spain’s position is car brand SEAT. The most popular SEAT models in Spain were the SEAT Leon and the SEAT Ibiza, both exceeding 30 thousand registrations in the Mediterranean country during 2018.

Germany: Europe‘s indisputable car manufacturer

Germany was the European country that most recorded passenger car registrations, with nearly 4 million new cars on the country’s roads in 2017. 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 German car manufacturer VW Group held the largest market share of passenger cars in Europe as of February 2019, taking up 24.4 percent of the total market.
