First podium for the Peugeot 2008

car sales in the French market came to the 153.055 units sold, which implies a 10.6% in comparison with the same month of the previous year. But don’t throw the bells into the air as these figures have been achieved with two working days more, so that the result is not as favorable as it seems.

For the fifth consecutive month the Renault Clio has been the car most wanted. Behind it lurk many models of the mark of the lion, no less than four. This is the Peugeot 208 (2), the Peugeot 2008 (3rd), the Peugeot 308 (4th) and the Peugeot 3008 (5th). Note that the third place in 2008 is his best result in the historical while the fourth of the 3008’s supposed to match his record.

why, except for the Clio, the Renault models have not managed to get into the top jobs this month? The situation is similar to that experienced in the Spanish market: the enrollment tactics that were conducted in December has caused too many units in stock at dealers, so that in January there have been a lot less automatriculaciones.
