:pushpin: As per the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), European Union passenger car registrations fell 15.4% to 886,510 units, a lowest month of June on record (in terms of volume) since 1996. In May, car registrations dropped 11.2%.

:pushpin: For the month, Germany posted the strongest decline of -18.1%, followed by Italy -15%, France -14.2% and Spain -7.8%.
