If petrol cars are in the majority (56.3% of sales), it is electric cars that are progressing with an increase of 18.6% to 46,626 units, i.e. a market share of 16.2%.
In this context, sales of :
ABARTH, down 70.05% to 62 units

In total, Stellantis sold 30,788 units, a decrease of 3.94% and a market share of 10.7%. The group is unable to benefit from the growth in the market, with the exception of DS, Jeep and Citroën, which show growth, the Chevrolet brand being the only one to show such a strong increase at this level of volume. Citroën doubles its sales on the electrified car market compared to March 2022 and manages to place the Berlingo van at the top of sales in its segment.
