2012 Europe Auto Sales Figures – By Brand (Brand Rankings)

2012 European Automotive Sales by Brand – The Best-Selling Automotive Brands By Sales Volume

In 2012, the European car market was experiencing the effects of the Eurozone crisis, which began as a debt crisis in several European countries around the end of the previous decade. The economic downturn had a significant impact on car sales in many European countries, leading to a contraction in the market.

As the flagship brand of the Volkswagen Group, VW remained the top-selling car brand in Europe, with the Golf and Polo among the most popular models. Despite facing challenges in the European market, Ford remained a key player with models like the Fiesta and Focus proving popular. Renault continued to have a strong presence in Europe with cars like the Clio and Megane, as did Peugeot with its 207 and 308 among the popular models that year.
