  • December’s Global Light Vehicle (LV) selling rate fell for the fourth consecutive month to 82.7 mn units/year, despite flat YoY raw monthly registrations. The total sales figure for 2022, 81mn vehicles, came in slightly below that of 2021 (‐0.6%) due to heightened market disruptions.

North America and Europe both showed positive YoY growth for December, although both remained shy of their 2021 performances (‐7% and ‐11% respectively).
