In the third quarter, Groupe Renault sold 852,198 vehicles, down -4.4% in a market that fell by -3.2%. Excluding Iran, the decrease would have been -1.8% in a market down -2.3%.

In Europe, the Group recorded a -3.4% decline in sales in a market up +2.4%. This decrease is partly due to a high comparison basis related to the introduction of the WLTP[3] for passenger cars in September 2018 and the awaiting of the full availability of New Clio in Europe.

In regions outside Europe, the Group over-performed the market. In a market down -6.2%, the Group recorded a -5.4% decrease in sales, mainly due to the decline in markets in Turkey (-21.7%), Argentina (-30.0%), and the end of sales in Iran since August 2018 (23,649 vehicles sold in the third quarter 2018). Excluding Iran, sales would have been down -0.3%.

In Eurasia, market share increased by +1.8 points. Group sales increased by +5.1% despite the fall of the Turkish market. Sales volume increased in Russia (+6.1%) in a market down -1.2%, thanks in particular to the launch of Arkana and the continuing success of Lada products.

In Americas, market share was up +0.2 points. Brazil saw its volumes increase by +5.6% but Argentina recorded a fall of -37.7%.

In Africa, Middle East, India and Pacific region, excluding Iran, market share was up +0.1 points. Sales volumes in the region are impacted by the decline of its main markets. In India, market share increased by +0.5 points, thanks to the successful launch of Triber. Sales fell by -7.8% in a market down -27.4%. In South Korea, the Group recorded a sales increase of +11.5% in a market down -1.7% thanks to the success of QM6.

In the China region, Group’s volumes were down -15.5% in a market down -5.0% awaiting the launch of New Captur and Renault City K-ZE, the new electric city car.
