Peugeot Citroen sales slump
Wednesday 25 April 2012
Peugeot Citroen said today its sales slumped in the first quarter as
Europe's recession-hit markets caused car sales to collapse across the
region's southern flank.
The Paris-based car maker says it made 15.4 billion euros (£12.6 billion) in the first quarter, down 7% from a year earlier.
The car maker blamed the collapse of markets in southern Europe for the weak quarterly performance.
Peugeot Citroen sales contracted 20% across all of Europe, with falls of 19.4% in France and 22.4% in Italy.
In a statement the company said it expected the European market to be down by about 5% over the full year, and by about 10% in France.
