Article by Anita Panait, on October 2, 2013

Vehicle registrations in France jumped 3.4 percent to 142,211 vehicles in September, according to the CCFA industry group.  The September growth is igniting hopes that demand may finally stabilize in the country.  Vehicle sales in the first nine months of 2013 dropped 8.5 percent to 1.43 million units. CCFA reiterated a forecast of an 8-percent drop. Renault led all carmakers in posting a rise in sales in September with an 18.1-percent rise, thanks to stronger sales of its new Captur crossover model as well as the success of its Dacia low-cost brand.

The Renault brand and Dacia logged increases of 19.3 percent and 11.1 percent, respectively Volkswagen Group sales -- including the Audi, Seat and Skoda brands -- jumped 1.7 percent in France. Fiat Group -- including Alfa Romeo and Lancia – surged 17.2 percent. Ford and PSA/Peugeot-Citroen, however, failed to ride the jump, dropping 8.3 percent and 6.8 percent, respectively.
