This means that the market share is 28.87% and thus the market leader in Austria. Stellantis increased its sales figures by 80.67% compared to the first quarter of 2020. The LCV market totaled 3.5 tons. It grew 45.97% to 11,783 units in the first quarter of 2021.
“I am very pleased that our results in the LCV field are developing well. Commercial demand for our products will continue. On the other hand, there are currently many pre-purchases due to the new NoVA Regulation for Commercial Vehicles that will be implemented from July 1st. The shift to an electric commercial vehicle is very attractive to a growing number of companies. Through our four brands, we are able to offer a wide range of high-quality commercial vehicles, including electric commercial vehicles, “says Sylvia Rieger, Managing Director of Stellantis Austria.
The electrification of commercial vehicles is progressing rapidly in Citro, n, Fiat Professional, Opel and Peugeot. Three commercial cars are already available as electric versions, and during 2021 there will be a total of 10 electric commercial vehicles.
