European car sales rise 3.2% in Feb

The European Automobile Manufacturers Association has today revealed registrations of new cars in Europe grew an annual 3.2% in February to 1,000,754 vehicles.

However, a severe fall of 30% was noted in Germany as the country’s scrappage scheme expired, but the fall was offset by growth in Italy and the UK, which still have incentive packages in place.

Overall, sales in the UK increased 26.4%, while they rose 18.2% in France, 20.6% in Italy and 47% in Spain.

In the meantime, Toyota saw its European sales decline as the carmaker has been suffering amid major recalls. Toyota has now recalled over 8 million cars over concerns about accelerator pedals and brake systems.
