UPWARD TREND CONFIRMED FOR NEW CAR REGISTRATIONS IN EUROPE.
According to the latest monthly figures published by the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA), new passenger car registrations rose by 4.1% in Europe in April 2004 over April 2003 figures. This is a slightly lower rise than in March, which saw registrations increase by nearly 7%. But that was helped by a particularly favourable calendar month, as most European countries had two - sometimes three - extra working days compared to March 2003. This time the advance was made with a practically identical calendar, thus confirming the highly positive trend of last month. Cumulative figures for the first four months of the year show an increase of 3.2%.
