The auto-scrapping was completed on December 31st last, but its effects still influence positively the French auto market. Sales of new cars rose by 8.2% to 85,603 units from January 2010, according to figures released by the Committee of French Car Manufacturers (CCFA). This is because the record order of cars in the last months of 2010 was partially honored in January. PSA and brand low-cost Renault, Dacia, have benefited most from these achievements.
Further to the economic daily “Les Echos” reports, auto-scrapping incentives have cost the French State more than one billion euros in two years. France paid incentives for 563,434 cars in 2010, paying a total of 510 million in 12 months. In 2009, this figure was even higher, 514 million euros.
