World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

Commercial vehicles sales down 25 percent y/y


The sale of new commercial vehicles in the European Union was again strongly encouraged in September. According to the European automobile association ACEA, sales were up by more than 13%. However, this is still a long way from making up for this year’s backlog.

Last month, a total of 163,512 vans, trucks and buses were registered. However, in the first nine months of the year, European sales are still almost 25 percent behind last year in the same period.

The car industry is suffering badly from the coronacrisis this year. However, there have recently been several car manufacturers who noticed that the demand was recovering again. It is possible that in the September figures, companies that actually wanted to buy new commercial vehicles in the spring waited a few months to buy them, due to uncertainty.

In all the large car countries, such as Germany, Italy and France, there was a strong plussen in september. In the Netherlands, the upturn was limited to a growth of more than 2 percent, to 6345 vehicles. So far, sales have fallen by 27% over the year.
