2015 Europe Auto Sales Figures – By Model (All Vehicle Ranked)
2015 European Vehicle Sales Rankings – Every Vehicle Ranked By Sales Volume
After discussing which car manufacturers and brands sold well in 2015, we’ll zoom in further to see which models boosted or sank their respective brands. Unsurprisingly, the Volkswagen Golf is the best selling car for the 8th year in a row, and it is followed by the Ford Fiesta for the 4th year in a row, or the 6th time in the past 7 years. Although the top-3 models, which includes the Renault Clio as well, all grow slower than the overall market, the top-6 ranking remains unchanged from 2014. If the Golf and Fiesta were the only two models to sell over 300,000 units in Europe in 2014, last year they were joined by the Clio and the Volkswagen Polo.
We also welcome two more models in the >200k-club, the biggest winner in the top-20 by far: the Volkswagen Passat, which jumps from 17th to 9th place thanks to sales up 47.1%, and the Peugeot 308, which benefits from an exceptionally strong December in The Netherlands to finish 2015 just outside the top-10 behind the Skoda Octavia with a 32,3% improvement. This pushes the model ahead of the Opel/Vauxhall Astra for the first time since the launch of the previous generation 308 in 2007.
