True Fleet in Germany swings to positive as the roller coaster ride continues

Somehow the trend for the German True Fleet Market for July was predictable. The roller coaster ride is still in full swing. Up in January, March and May, down in February, April and June it logically follows that the Fleet Market showed a positive result in July with + 7.3%. The year-to-date growth of + 2.0% is remarkable taking into account that 2016 is a challenging benchmark as it provided

The outlook for True Fleet in the UK remains dark and gloomy

The German True Fleet Market continues its 2017 roller coaster ride

The UK True Fleet continues to suffer negative growth in 2017

While the rest of the EU-5 has swung back into positive growth for May the UK is still dealing with negative growth, perhaps fuelled in part by consumers with eyes on June’s snap election.

True Fleet struggled with a negative 4.5% but it was definitely the Private Market with -14.1% that

French True Fleet down 9% for April despite strong numbers from the home brands

April’s True Fleet feeling the effect from three negative elements

With April bringing a triple combination of negative elements to effect the market it was perhaps a foreseeable downturn for the both the Total Market and True Fleet. Three less business days, the usual hangover from the UK plate change plus the somewhat confusing new Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) all contributed to the less than stellar - 19.8% for the Total market. While True Fleet suffered with a - 25.1%

True Fleet Market Germany: Easter holidays are affecting April results

Three working days less compared to April 2016 had undoubtedly a serious (negative) impact on April `17’s performance.

As a result, the year-to-date fleet performance turned slightly negative ( 1.0%). Within the Top 10 Mercedes (3rd) and BMW

True Fleet Market France: One of the last bastions of Small Cars

A decline by - 1.2% compared to March 2016 is surely not a reason for getting euphoric but at least this is a better result for True Fleets in France than in the first two months of 2017.
