Tue 4th Jan 2011

Although the registration of new vehicles in Spain fell for the sixth consecutive month in December, figures for 2010 as a whole ended ahead of 2009 by 3.1%, due in large to persuasive incentives which fuelled sales in the first half of 2010.

Last year a total of 982,015 new cars were registered in Spain, as opposed to 952,772 units the year before, according to the Spanish automotive industry association (Anfac). However, for December 2010, car registrations fell to 68,942 units, down 23.9% from the 90,553 reported in December 2009.

For the whole of 2010 SEAT led the domestic car market, accounting for sales of 89,392 cars. Volkswagen followed with 83,356 units, while Peugeot accounted for 82,678 units. The bestselling model in 2010 was the Renault Megane, with 45,198 units sold, followed by the SEAT Ibiza with 39,905 and the Citroen C4 with 35,689 units.

French brands led the market last month with Citroen selling 5,822 units, Peugeot selling 5,746 and Renault selling 5,500 units. The Megane and C4 were among the top selling three models last month, taking first and second places. The Nissan Qashqai came in third, with 2,356 units sold.,/p>
