The European car market turned in a strong overall result in June, with the seasonally adjusted annualised running rate (SAAR) turning out at a highly respectable 14.7 million units.

The buoyant UK and Spanish markets contrasted somewhat with a poor sales month in Germany and further evidence of weak demand in Italy. This report is from JD Power-LMC.
