EU New Car Sales Fell in September Amid Chip Shortage

10/15/2021 | 12:14am EST

By Kim Richters

Passenger-car registrations in the European Union declined in September amid the current shortage of semiconductors, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association said on Friday.

New car registrations--a reflection of sales--declined 23% year-on-year to 718,598 vehicles for the month, said the association, also known as ACEA. The EU's major markets--Spain, France, Italy and Germany--all reported strong decreases.

"This decrease in sales was largely caused by a lack of supply of vehicles due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage," it said.

Meanwhile, new passenger-car registrations across the EU in the first nine months of the year rose 6.6% to 7.5 million, ACEA said.
