Sales of new cars across Europe rose for the first time in 14 months in June, buoyed by a number of national scrappage schemes, figures have shown.
New registrations across 28 European nations rose by 2.4% last month from a year ago, the European Automotive Manufacturers’ Association said.
Germany, one of the first countries to pay drivers to trade in old cars, led the gains, with registrations up 41%.
Sales across the 28 European countries totalled 1.46 million in June, the European Automotive Manufacturers’ Association said, up from 1.43 million a year earlier.
