Despite a drop in sales (down 5.7% at 74,647 units), Dacia held firm in fifth place in the market ranking. Overall, Groupe Renault passenger car sales rose by 2.5% to 354,795 units, for a market share of 25.0% (down 0.9 points).


With registrations totalling 81,099 (up 3.9%), Clio held a comfortable lead at the top of the French passenger car market. Captur, leader on the urban crossover segment, was in fourth position, at 53,840 units (up 16.2%). New Espace doubled its predecessor’s sales over the same period last year, to reach 6,648 units. Following launch in June, Kadjar sales reached 10,698 units, and for the month of September it already ranked fourth on the all-track vehicle segment. At 34,291 registrations, New Twingo claims a full 30.5% share of the small city car segment. ZOE reaped full benefit from the conversion bonus to more than double its sales, up to 6,952 units, and command close to 60% of the French electric passenger car market.


On a steady market (up 0.8%), Renault LCV sales rose by 3.7%. At 86,765 units, Renault kept its comfortable lead on the French LCV market, with a 31.7% share (up 0.9 points). Overall, Groupe Renault LCV sales rose by 3.1% to total 88,979 units. Kangoo and Clio held the top two positions on the LCV market. With Master and Trafic as well, Renault has four vehicles in the top six. And for the month of September, Kangoo, Trafic, Clio and Master held all of the top four slots in the LCV ranking.


Renault’s combined passenger car and LCV sales rose by 4.7% over the first nine months of the year to total 366,913 units. Overall, Groupe Renault sales of Renault plus Dacia models reached 443,774, up by 2.7% (11,500 units) on the same period in 2014. The Groupe Renault market share stood at 26.2% (down 0.7 points), broken down as 21.6% for Renault (down 0.1 point) and 4.5% for Dacia (down 0.5 points).


Our sales performance up to the end of September was solid, under market conditions better than expected. Demand for most of our models has been strong, and New Espace and Kadjar have done very well, with a good upward weighting in the version mix. Judging from these good results we should be able to expect progression in both volumes and market share for 2015 as a whole”. Philippe Buros, SVP Market Area France
