Dr. Thomas Staertzel, Chairman of the AEB Automobile Manufacturers Committee has commented: “The New Year starts typically with a small sales volume month. In January 2021 new vehicle sales slightly decreased by 4.2% versus the same month of previous year. After three months of top growth, since December 2020 the market has been slightly decreasing. We still expect that with stronger February and March sales the first quarter will be on the level of previous year. Five top selling brands are showing relative stability. Interesting is the strong growth of some brands and that for the first time Chinese brands are positioned in the top of the table.”
