It was the fourth consecutive year of declines.
According to a chart published by Nytimes, in troubled Greece, fewer than 100,000 new passenger cars were registered. That had not happened since at least 1990. In 2007, nearly 280,000 new cars were registered.
In Belgium, more than 50 new cars were registered for every 1,000 people. In Greece, the number was under nine. In Hungary, where new car registrations are less than half their level of four years ago, the figure is about half the Greek level.

Top 3 Car Makers in US Gain Marketshare in 2011



This year, for the first time since 1988, all three Detroit automakers have gained market share in the U.S.Now they face the challenge of maintaining or adding to those gains. General Motors and Ford benefited from new fuel-efficient cars such as the Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Fiesta that sold well when gas prices soared above $4 a gallon last spring. A tragic, but large, contributing factor was last March's massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan that caused a shortage of cars and trucks. Toyota and Honda are just beginning to recover.


Through November, the Detroit Three captured 47.2% of combined market share, up from 45.1% for the same period in 2010, Autodata said. For perspective, in 1988, the last time all three gained share, their collective piece of the pie swelled to 73.1% from 70.2%, according to WardsAuto.com

Strong BMW and Mini sales helped grow Munich's share of the British car market from 9.4% in May to 10% in June. Peugeot and Citroen improved from 8.2% to 8.6%. Renault and its Nissan/Infiniti partners gained a half a percentage point between May and June. Despite significant year-over-year losses, Toyota/Lexus increased their market share, too. Jaguar and Land Rover fell back from May's 2.3%.
