  • Europe's Passenger Car Registrations Fall In September Europe's new car registrations declined in September, data from European Automobile Manufacturers' Association showed Tuesday. Passenger car sales fell 2 percent year-on-year to 1.43 million in September. The decline reversed a 5.6 percent rise in August. However, the agency said it must be noted that September 2016 figures (the highest total on record to date) constituted a high basis of comparison. The UK and Germany logged 9.3 percent and 3.3 percent decreases, respectively. Meanwhile, these declines were partially offset by the solid performance of the Italian and Spanish markets. Italy's car sales grew 8.1 percent and Spain's registrations climbed 4.6 percent in September. In France, sales gained 1.1 percent. During January to September, demand for passenger cars increased 3.7 percent to almost 11.7 million units.
