Joerg Schreiber presented the car market sales results of 2019 and commented: “In a strong closing effort, December market sales improved by 2.3% year-on-year. Despite that, cumulative sales in the 4th quarter however remained in negative territory showing a 3.0% drop compared to the same period one year ago. Full year sales in 2019 reached 1.76 million units - 41 thousand units or 2.3% below the level of 2018. For the current year, we expect similarly challenging market circumstances. Full year sales in 2020 are anticipated at a level of 1.72 million units which would represent a further 2.1% decline from the market level reached in 2019”.
