April 2023 review - SPAIN car market

After an exceptional month in March, the Spanish car market continued its positive trend in April, although growth slowed to +8.2% with 74,749 units sold. However, this good performance should be seen in the context of the fact that April sales in Spain usually exceed 100,000 units, indicating that the market is still far from its normal levels.

In this context, sales of the

  • ALFA ROMEO, up 71.9% to 435 units

  • CITROËN were down 20.9% to 3,434 units, giving a market share of 4.59%.

  • DS down 37.5% to 327 units

  • FIAT fell 7.9% to 1,933 units, giving a market share of 2.59%.

  • JEEP were down 43.6% to 453 units.

  • MASERATI are 30 units

  • OPEL are up 68.9% to 2,548 units for a market share of 3.41%.

  • PEUGEOT are up 26.7% to 5,345 units for a market share of 7.15%.

In total, Stellantis sold 14,505 units, an increase of 5.38% and a market share of 19.40%. This is a poor performance for Stellantis, which is underperforming the market and whose growth is being driven by Opel and Peugeot, the only brands to make progress with the Alfa Romeo, albeit on a small scale. The performances of Opel and Peugeot should be compared with those of 2022, when their sales fell by 36.8% and 32% respectively. Citroën's sales fell in April, but the brand is still in 9th place in terms of sales.

In terms of models, the C4 is the brand's best seller with 1,425 units (+19.65%), which puts it in the top 10 on the market and first in its segment. Citroën is particularly affected by the poor performance of the C3 Aircross, the brand's second best seller with 757 units, but down 43%, while the C3, Citroën's third best seller, fell by 60.06% to just 641 units. The C5 Aircross and C5 X save the honour with increases of 222.37% and 105.08% respectively, but at low volumes, 490 units for the C5 Aircross and 121 for the C5 X. Finally, the C4 is the second best selling electric car with 274 units, behind the MG4 with 372 units.
