W European Passenger Car Sales

October 2021

The West European selling rate dropped to 9.7 mn units/year in September, from 11.9 mn units/year in August. The latest monthly results are clear evidence of the major sourcing issues that are haunting global vehicle production currently, with dealerships unable to meet consumer demand. Adding to market headwinds, those vehicles that are available are generally higher priced, as OEMs look to target the production of higher margin products.
