It looks like the German new car market decided: “Last year was nice. Let’s do it again.” For a few months, the German market had retraced the prior year. In February, the prior year number has been hit with 0.0 percent precision.

224,318 cars changed hands in February, 6.7 percent more than in January, but exactly 0.0 percent more or less compared to February 2011.

Nothing earth-shattering to report.  Subcompacts are up, speaking of which, Volkswagen’s Up! continues it’s up!ward trajectory. The upper class, which had gained a lot in the prior yer, is down.  More in the (German) data, which can be downloaded here.
