By just-auto.com editorial team | 13 April 2006

Faurecia reported a 3.4% rise in Q1 sales to €2.908bn, according to Reuters.

Sales were up 31% in North America and 37% in Asia as a result of efforts to expand outside of Europe.

The group's seating business was down 2.4% to €1.2bn due to lower sales by PSA and Renault. The decline was, however, partially offset by a rise in production of the Audi Q7, BMW 3-series and Toyota Yaris.

Vehicle interiors sales were up 7.3% at constant exchange rates and interior modules were up 1.5%.
