Norway, as we know, is a country that makes so much money selling fossil fuels to other people that it can afford elaborate incentives to persuade its own citizens to buy cars that don’t use the said fossil fuels. It was the first country in Europe to buy Teslas in numbers and reading comments by Tesla fans would…
Updated as of Feb 2016. Some interesting bits here....
We’ve seen that “dieselgate” has been shrugged off by at last two European car markets, so let’s continue our exploration by travelling North to Sweden, a country noted for environmental friendliness and so one which should treat diesels like a manifestation of the Antichrist.
October has come and gone. So? So it’s the first full month after that diesel business and we might get an idea if would be diesel buyers are going the spark ignition route or at least avoiding their friendly local VW dealer.
We continue our exploration of the world’s car buying statistics and head east (or west, depending where you you start from) to the chilly steppes of Russia, land of dachas, despots and dodgy financial dealings. Also land of a megalomaniacal nutcase
Latest in our exploration of who buys what and where comes Turkey, a country straddling Europe and Asia and known for Aghia Sophia, the theatre at Pergamon and the cave churches of Cappadocia, all of which are Greek, and a relative absence of Armenians due to the events of a hundred years ago which are still denied in…
Latest in my exploration of who’s buying what and where comes Argentina, land of pampas, Patagonia, Péron and the tango. Also a land without the Falklands.
Having explored Western Europe and North America let’s go to a land down under. There are many of these so let’s go to The Land Down Under.
Having done various bits of Europe, let’s spread our wings a little and see what’s hot and what’s not in Canadian car sales.
In our exploration of international car stats we go below sea level and alight in the Netherlands (not Holland, we note), land of windmills, dikes, boys with their fingers in dikes, cheese and brown cafés where you can buy funny stuff to smoke. It’s also the land of the late Vincent van Gogh, a painter whom the…
Latest in my series of European car statistics comes Denmark, a place chosen ahead of Finland and the UK because the figures are available free (I’m looking at you, UK) and in a language I have some vague hope of understanding.
Latest in my occasional series on European sales stats finds us in Greece, land of retsina, moussaka (which is more Turkish) and debt (which is mainly German).
For the latest instalment in my series on European car sales stats let’s turn to Spain, country of
jalapeno, tortillas and tacos
paella, rioja and jamón ibérico (Spain /=/ Mexico) and find ourselves some estadísticas de automóviles de tourismo.
Another instalment on my occasional series on “what cars do people buy in various European countries?”
Should I continue my exploration of new car sales stats in different bits of Europe? Oh yes, why not!
I've been exploring sales stats in various bits of Europe. Yesterday we did Ireland, today we're in Sweden.
I've been looking, as you do, at car sales in Ireland for the first quarter and I see that somebody bought a Lexus LS. Yes, just the one. Lexus really aren't a thing in Europe.
Well, the Chase is now upon us.
Would rather be on the Facebooks.
