After the moderate recovery scored in the previous two years, the European new vehicles market (cars and light commercial vehicles) in the 2015 reported a substantial increase of 3.8% albeit the sharp sales decline of Russia that have lost over 1 million vehicles.

All markets in Western Europe had been positive with those involved in the 2011 crisis (Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Italy, Greece) recovering at strong pace and Central European area near record level and Scandinavian zone at record fueled by the effects of green policies and their effects on car fleet renewal.
