Renault: global sales down 4.5% in 2021
(CercleFinance.com) - Renault announced on Monday that its global vehicle sales fell by 4.
5% in 2021, to 2,696,401 units.
Sales of Renault vehicles alone fell by 5.3% last year, with a 10.5% decline in cars partly offset by a 19% rise in commercial vehicles.
Dacia sales rose by 3.1% in 2021, with the renewal of the brand's range being crowned with success, notably thanks to the new Sandero, the best-selling vehicle amongst private customers in Europe last year.
The company says that its commercial policy initiated in Q3 2020 has also led to an increase in the share of its sales in the most profitable channels.
In the five main European countries (France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the UK), the share of sales to private individuals now represents 53%, i.e. a growth of almost six points compared to 2019, i.e. before the health crisis.
Its electric and hybrid vehicles now account for 30% of Renault brand passenger car sales in Europe, compared with 17% in 2020.
The share price rose by more than 2% on Monday morning on the Paris stock exchange following the publication of these figures.
