Fleet registrations in the European Union were stable for the month of June and the first half of the year overall, inching up slightly when compared to last year, according to a report from Dataforce.
For the first half of the year, fleet registrations rose by 1.8%, and in June alone, true fleet registrations were up marginally by 0.6%, according to Dataforce. Peugeot had a big month in June, as fleet owners propelled the French brand to a 10.3% increase year to date. Peugeot crossovers the 3008 and 5008 helped contribute to this growth. Other manufacturers that did well in June included SEAT (up 28%) and Kia (up 13.5% so far this year).
Electric vehicles were on the rise over the first six month of the year, and specifically in the true fleet market (up 57.5%), with the Renault Zoe being ranked No.1 for fleets and private buyers. Meanwhile, diesel vehicles were still favored by several EU markets this year, except for France and the Netherlands, where registrations for vehicles of this type were down.
