Europe - Car sales broke 15 million in 1999
As expected, the car markets of Europe began to stand still in December. Provisional figures issued by ACEA suggest that the market rose by just 0.3% to 956,082 from 953,153. That was despite great effort by some manufacturers to get their numbers up a bit before the year end by whatever means were at their disposal. The figures suggest that the year finished 4.8% up at 15,065,196 from 14,369,480. That is a new all-time best for Europe, and one that we do not expect to see challenged for a year or two yet.
