Citroën (-13.9%) is holding up well and is back above the symbolic 10% market share mark at 10.3%.

Toyota (-20.6%) is ahead of Volkswagen (-13.8%) for 5th place overall, while the two main Korean brands are once again surprising with year-on-year increases: Hyundai is up 13.2% to 7th place, and Kia up 6% to 8th place.

Update of 05/24/22: Now with the Top 150 models.

The French new car market suffered a 10th consecutive month of year-on-year decline, worsening to -19.5% and 147,079 units with the microchip crisis and the Russia-Ukraine war impacting supply. Removing March 2020, which was affected by the pandemic, this is the lowest March result since 1980. Sales are down -34.9% compared to March 2019 pre-pandemic. As a result, first quarter volume was down 17.3% to 365,360 sales. Gasoline sales are down -26.1% year-on-year to 57,444 units and 39.1% share from 42.5% a year ago, diesel implodes by -50.4% to 21,075 and 14.3% share from 23.3% in 2021, HEV is down -5% to 27,860 and 18.9% share from 16%, PHEV falls -16.5% to 11,690 and 7.9% share from 7.7%. On the other hand, BEVs are doing very well, with a 27.2% increase to 19,835 units and a 13.5% market share compared to 8.5% a year ago, even catching up with diesel registrations.

Peugeot (-33.6%) scored a third consecutive victory in the brand rankings, a remarkable performance since the end of the quarter had usually favored Renault (-30.4%), which remained in second place. Citroën (-27.8%) falls to 9.4% market share from 10% at the start of the year, followed by Dacia (+31.4%), which recorded by far the strongest year-on-year increase in the Top 10 – and Top 25. Volkswagen (-10.4 %) limited its fall, while Toyota (-20.2 %) followed the market more or less. Ford (-1.3%) is almost stable above Mercedes (-21.3%). Tesla (+7.1%) and Kia (+6.5%) close the Top 10 on a positive note. Below it, Hyundai (+1.9%) is the only manufacturer to move up in the Top 20, to 12th place, while DS (-0.1%) and Skoda (-6.9%) show single-digit declines. All other manufacturers in the Top 20 are falling faster than the market, with Mini (-31.4%) and Fiat (-27.6%) being the hardest hit. Among the smaller brands, MG (+282.6%), Bentley (+150%), Cupra (+113.9%) and Alpine (+67.6%) are impressive.

In terms of models, the Peugeot 208 (-21.5%) secured a fourth consecutive monthly victory and consolidated its leadership position since the beginning of the year with a 6% share. The Dacia Sandero (+34.6%) moved up four places from February to second place overall and fourth place year-to-date. The Citroën C3 (-16.8%) fell one place to third position. It overtook the Renault Clio (-37.3%) for the second consecutive month. The Renault Captur (-26.2%) moved up two places to 5th place and the Peugeot 308 III moved up four places to break its monthly ranking record at 6th place. The Tesla Model 3 (-14.2%) moves up two spots to #7, matching its all-time high ranking, also achieved last August and December, and by far the best-selling foreign model in the ranking. Note that the Model 3 is on the podium when only private sales are taken into account. The Peugeot 3008 (-29.6%) and 2008 (-54.3%) are struggling underneath while the Citroën C3 Aircross (+10.7%) is going against the market with a year-on-year increase to return to the Top 10 at #10. The Renault Arkana confirms its success, moving up to 11th place and 10th place year-to-date. The Ford Puma (+43%) makes a meteoric rise to take the 2nd foreign spot at #12, ahead of the Fiat 500 (-11.1%) at #14, the VW Polo (-5%) at #17 and the T-Roc (+2.6%) at #18.

Note that the articles for November 2021, December 2021, full year 2021, January 2022, February 2022 and March 2022 have also been updated with a Top 150 models.

Update 11/05: Now with the Top 55 All Brands.

New car sales in France slipped for the 11th consecutive month in April, accelerating their decline to -22.6% and 108,723 registrations. Excluding the pandemic month of April 2020 (20,997 sales), this is the lowest April volume in 57 years: Since April 1965’s 106,311 units… Comparing to pre-pandemic April 2019 (188,199), the market is down -42.2%. Year-to-date volume is now down -18.6% to 474,083. Private sales hold 46% of the market in April versus 45.5% YTD at 215,368 units (-13%). Gasoline sales are down 33.5% to 40,732 units and 37.5% market share, diesel is down 48.1% to 17,156 units and 15.8% market share, but HEV is up 18.7% to 22,490 units and 20.7% market share. BEVs are also up 32.7 percent to 12,692 units and 11.7 percent market share, but PHEVs are down 8.2 percent to 10,234 units and 9.4 percent market share.

Peugeot (-32.3%) scored its 6th victory in the last 7 months and cemented its YTD leadership despite falling much faster than the market at 16.3% share. Indeed, the top three French automakers are all losing share year-over-year with Renault (-31.7%) at 13.7%, its lowest since July 2021, and Citroen (-33.9%) at 8.6%, its lowest for the year. Conversely, Dacia (+6.5%) delivered the only year-on-year increase in the Top 6 and ended the month just 0.7 points behind Citroën. It is ahead of Volkswagen (-31.2%) and Toyota (-20.4%). Ford (+10.9%) and Kia (+9.1%) are the other two gainers in the rest of the Top 10, while BMW (-18.6) moves up four spots from March to 9th and Hyundai (-8.4%) moves up two spots to 10th. Below them, Nissan (+47.8%), DS (+1%), Cupra (+162%), Mitsubishi (+158%), Alpine (+158.9%) and Alfa Romeo (+196%) all show market defying increases.

The Ford Puma enters the French Top 10 for the first time in March.

In the model rankings, the Peugeot 208 (-20.4%) easily retains first place with a 5.4% market share compared to 5.9% since the beginning of the year. The Citroën C3 (-19.9%) is back in second place for the second time in the last three months, a position it has also held since the beginning of the year. The Peugeot 308 III gains three spots compared to March and reaches the podium for the first time for this generation and the first time since February 2017 for the 308 brand. The Dacia Sandero (-16.8%) falls two places to 4th place ahead of the Renault Captur (-14.6%) which remains in 5th place. The Peugeot 2008 (-55.6%) collapses compared to last year but gains three places compared to last month to be #6 in front of the Peugeot 3008 (-55.3%) also in great difficulty. The Fiat 500 (+32.8%) goes completely against the market and climbs 6 places to reach the 8th place in the general ranking and the 1st foreign model. This means that the Fiat 500 sells better in France than in Italy, both in terms of volume and share. But where is the Renault Clio? It is down 68.3% on the previous year and is in a barely believable 9th place, which is by far the worst ranking ever recorded by the brand in France. Inventory problems could be the cause of this particularly disastrous month. The Ford Puma (+69.7%) enters the French Top 10 for the first time in 10th place and becomes the best-selling foreign car since the beginning of the year in 12th place.

Previous month: France March 2022: The market plunges -19.5%, Dacia (+31.4%) resists and places Sandero in 2nd position.

One year ago: France April 2021: Renault Clio V back in the lead, Hyundai (+19.8%) impresses, sales down -25.4% compared to two years ago.
