The European car market dropped in June 2019 as 1.49 million vehicles were registered—down by 7.9% on the same time last year, according to data from JATO. It was the biggest monthly drop so far in 2019, as only four out of the 27 markets included in JATO’s analysis posted growth but counted for a marginal 2.6% of total registrations. SUV registrations totalled 556,400 units during the month, up by only 0.7% compared to the 552,500 units of June 2018.

June’s results confirm that conditions in Europe are getting worse. We continue to see a repeat of the same pattern: lower consumer confidence is mostly affecting diesel car registrations, which used to dominate the European landscape.

The diesel crisis is particularly challenging in Scandinavia, where electric cars continue to increase their market share. In June, diesel car registrations in the four Scandinavian markets fell by 52% to just 20,092 units, marking the first time that these cars were outsold by electrified vehicles (20,182 units).
