Top YtD sellers were the Peugeot 207, VW Golf, Ford Focus, Opel/Vauxhall Astra, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa, Renault Clio, Fiat Punto, Ford Fiesta, VW Passat and BMW 3-Series (up 3.9%).

Markets - The German market has now consolidated after a turbulent few months following tax changes in January and whilst the November figures are down 12.9% on the total achieved in the same month last year, it has now settled back to normal levels of trading. Year-to-date the German market is down 8.2%. Austria, Hungary and Spain have also recorded reduced markets compared to 2006 for both November and for the YtD.

The car market in Lithuania continues to grow significantly, while the high growth seen earlier in the year in neighbouring Latvia and Estonia means that those markets are still maintaining large YtD increases. Poland continues its recovery, with YtD volumes up 22.5% on the previous year. The car market in Cyprus is also growing fast, up 29.5% YtD. Many other European markets have also recorded increased car sales during 2007, leaving the overall European market up by 0.7% YtD.
