New European Automobile Manufacturer Association (ACEA) forecasts predict that this year’s EU registrations will stagnate at around the same 15 million as last year.

However, no one knows what course the year will take, with a number of challenges facing the industry. The fall in diesel vehicle sales, Brexit, manufacturers pushing EV production and so forth are all things that the automotive world will be adapting to during 2019.

Therefore, Autovista Group would like to ask readers of its website and Daily News Brief, what they think the European sales market will do in 2019. Will the ACEA forecast of an increase of less than 1% ring true, or will the market fall or rise by more?
