In April 2022, new passenger car registrations in the European Union saw a significant drop (-20.6%), as supply chain issues continued to weigh heavily on car production. With the exception of the pandemic year in 2020, this was the weakest April result in terms of volumes sold since records began (684,506 units sold). All major markets contributed to the region’s negative performance: Italy (-33.0%), France (-22.6%), Germany (-21.5%) and Spain (-12.1%).
From January to April of 2022, new car registrations declined by 14.4% across the EU, totalling 2,930,366 units. The substantial decrease in car sales in March and April further dragged down the cumulative performance. Among the key markets in the EU, Italy saw the steepest fall (-26.5%), followed by France (-18.6%), Spain (-11.8%) and Germany (-9.0%).
