EU's best-selling car brands: new registrations in 2019 Volkswagen was the best-selling car brand in September 2019, based on new registrations in the European Union. About 115,000 new Volkswagen-branded cars were registered in the European Union in September 2019. Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Ford, and Opel-Vauxhall rounded off the top five most sought-after brands.

A jump in September sales

Many manufacturers recorded significant growth in September new passenger car registrations between 2018 and 2019. Conversely, August 2019 figures were significantly lower compared to the previous year.In September 2018, the European Union began new emissions standards, increasing the price of some models. Motorists rushed to buy new cars in August 2018 before the standards began.

Volkswagen keeps sales crown

In August 2019, the Volkswagen Group sold about 124,400 passenger cars under its namesake brand. Additionally, the company sold some 58,000 Audi sedans, almost 42,000 Seat cars, over 55,000 Skoda vehicles, and just under 6,000 Porsche sports cars to customers across the European Union. In August 2019, the Volkswagen brand had a market share of around 11.9 percent. The brand's August 2019 sales declined by almost 14 percent year-on-year, and year-to-date sales were down 7.6 percent.

These figures are in line with overall EU auto sales: Europe's auto industry recorded a decrease in auto sales of 8.4 percent across the 28 member states between August 2018 and 2019; year-to-date sales were down 3.2 percent.
