Analysis: European sales may have bottomed out

  • IHS Automotive's Carlos Da Silva thinks the European automobile market has bottomed out after dissecting the latest round of sub-par sales tallies on the continent.
  • The analyst notes the rate of decline has slowed enough to call a bottom, although the general sentiment in the industry is that any recovery will be choppy at best.

    Through the year, new vehicle sales in Europe are down about 5%, and August was also down about 5%, after being up 5% in July. Sounds like a fairly stable if rocky bottom.
