Despite production and logistical difficulties, Citroën is making progress on the Spanish car market, particularly on the market for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV), where it holds a leading position that has been strengthened by the sales figures for the month of September.
At the end of September, Citroën was in third place on the overall market for electrified vehicles (electric + PHEV) with a market share of 7.1% and 2,618 registrations. This good performance is mainly due to the ëC4, which has sold 1,037 units since the beginning of the year, giving it a market share of 3.1% in this segment, making it the seventh best-selling electric car in Spain and second in its segment.
In the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) category, the Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid took the lead in September with 373 registrations and a market share of 7.6%. Since the beginning of the year, the C5 Aircross PHEV is in 6th place with 1,616 units and a sales increase of 84.69%.
On the total market (thermal + electrified), Citroën achieved 44,801 registrations of passenger cars and commercial vehicles and a penetration of 5.5% between January and August. The C4 is the brand's best-selling model with 9,453 registrations, the electric version representing almost 11% of C4 sales. If Citroën is strong on the electric vehicle market, it is also strong on the overall market, notably with the C3, which is the leader in diesel sales and 4th in petrol sales, followed by the C3 Aircross in 7th place for the month of September. Finally, the Berlingo remains a strong performer for the brand, being the best-selling commercial vehicle in Spain since the beginning of the year, with 7,291 units sold.
Citroën is therefore in good shape on the Spanish car market, where it has managed to place several of its vehicles at the top of their segments. With third place in its segment in the market for electric and PHEV cars, Citroën is also showing that it can be counted on, a position it will soon consolidate with the future C3, which promises to be formidable for the competition. and which should allow Citroën to see its sales take off.
