According to the industry data gathered by LMC Automotive, car sales in Western Europe increased by one percent in November 2014 compared to last year’s November 2013 car sales. One of the primary reasons why car sales increased is the strong demand in Spain and Britain. The strong demand in these countries helped in offsetting the falls in France, Germany and the Netherlands.
One of the basis why the LMC Automotive concluded that car sales in Western Europe went up by one percent is due to the car registrations last month. Car registrations in Western Europe rose from last year’s 910,236 to this year’s 919,509. The data came from the compilation of the consulting firm.
It can be remembered that the industry experienced continuous six years of fall down with regard to car sales. Fortunately, this year, the industry is expected to pick up as it anticipated to achieve full-year car sales increase that is about five percent higher than the car sales of 2013.
Despite the expected car sales increase for this year, this level still remains low compared to the 14.5 million sales before the occurrence of financial crisis. The recovery of car sales has been patchy from one country to another as of the moment.
