PSA Peugeot Citroen has posted half-year global sales up 0.4% to 1.54m units with progression in Europe, China, India-Pacific and Middle East & Africa, now the Group's third largest growth market.

PSA Peugeot Citroen has posted half-year global sales up 0.4% to 1.54m units with progression in Europe, China, India-Pacific and Middle East & Africa, now the Group’s third largest growth market.

Consolidated sales in Europe rose 2.9% year on year to 984,000.

Peugeot sales were up 6.7% due to what the company says was performance delivered by the Peugeot 308, the third bestselling model in the C segment (sedans and estates) in Europe and the segment leader in France.

Citroën registrations climbed 2.8% in the first half, reflecting the brand repositioning which began a year ago.

Sales of the new Citroën C1 came in at 32,000 units, 54% higher than the previous version.

DS sales jumped 14.8% between the first and second quarters to reach 40,700 units, driven by the launch of the new DS 5.

In China and South-East Asia, PSA Peugeot Citroën sales totalled 368,000 vehicles, a 2.2% improvement on first-half 2014.

In the first half of the year, the Group consolidated the positions it holds in a number of countries in its historical Middle East & Africa markets: leading in Tunisia and ranking second in Morocco and third in Algeria.
