2-month report 2023 - EUROPE car market


The European automotive market confirmed its recovery in the first two months of 2023 with an increase in sales of 11.5% to 1,814,048 units, a figure to be treated with caution as the beginning of 2022 was severely affected by the shortage of components. Compared with 2019, the European car market is therefore down sharply by 15.46%, i.e. a loss of almost 330,000 cars.

In this context, sales of the

  • ALFA ROMEO, up 118.6% to 6,858 units for a market share of 0.4%.

  • CITROËN, down 3% to 56,071 units for a market share of 3.1%; and

  • DS up 21.8% to 8,053 units for a market share of 0.4%.

  • FIAT up 7.6% to 62,454 units for a market share of 3.4%.

  • JEEP were up 5% to 19,677 units for a market share of 1.1%.

  • LANCIA fell 15.6% to 6,049 units, giving a market share of 0.3%.

  • OPEL were down 4.7% to 62,844 units for a market share of 3.5%.

  • PEUGEOT fell 2.1% to 100,327 units, giving a market share of 5.5%.

In total, Stellantis' sales are 323,838 units, up 1% for a market share of 17.9%, the group is second in sales in Europe with a gap that widens to 8.2 points of market share. The drop in February means that Citroën is down over the two months, but the brand is doing better than Opel and is not far behind Peugeot in terms of performance. We will have to wait a few months to see a more precise trend in the behaviour of each brand in Europe.
