Germany’s new car market recovered slightly in June. Sales were up 2.9 percent to units, Germany’s Kraftfahrtbundesamt reports.

With Mercedes up 5.7 percent, Audi up 8.1 percent and Porsche up 23.2 percent, Germans said good-bye to austerity, at least for June. Opel (-9,3 percent), Chevrolet (- 7.4 percent), and Ford (-4,5 percent) lost.

    For the 6 months to end of June (more meaningful than one months data) I see Chevy is up 5.6% whilst Honda is way down by 17.0% and was actually outsold by Chevy – the indignaty of it. Maybe that doesn’t fit in with the desired narrative as demonstrated by picking out certain data and companies to show losses.

      You DO realize that this is sales in Deutchland, right? I don’t recall anyone claiming that Honda was a sales giant there.

        I DO realise this was sales in Germany. I don`t recall anyone claiming that Chevrolet was a sales giant there either! But they were specifically mentioned. I was adding balance. Although we can all read so picking out certain companies in the text is not necessary.
