    Looks like Jeep are on a roll in Europe with sales up +225.3%, Mitsubishi are fighting back at the bottom of the table, Land Rover +30.4% are enjoying the SUV sales boom along with Mini, Smart, Nissan. Opel/Vauxhall market share slipped from 7.7% in 2014 to 7.3% in the EU in 2015 down -0.4%. Chevy had the biggest drop off due to its pulling out of the EU in December 2015 the supplies & orders have dried up on that, Jaguar, Lancia/Chrysler & DS all had a bad month. LHD/RHD Jeep doing very well on the back of high demand of RHD cars sold in the United Kingdom, please take note LHD Cadillac for 2020, or whenever things are gonna finally be done properly some time in the far off future by Cadillac whenever it might be, l pretty damm sure if Jeep can start to crack Europe Cadillac sure can do well as the cars are brilliant, if only Caddy could provide some cars that are more in tune with expensive $9 EU gasoline prices.

    Every group is up except GM - and even then Opel/Vauxhall is up - the figures reflect Chevrolet's withdrawal as 12 months ago there were a few cars left in stock for disposal.

    But clearly disappointing that Opel/Vauxhall is only up +4.5% when the whole market is up +10.2%
