Opel’s sales in Europe surpassed the coveted one-million-vehicle mark in November, putting it on pace (alongside Vauxhall) to improve its year-over-year sales and market share on the continent for a third year in a row.

Through November, Opel and Vauxhall registrations are up by 38,000 units, a number bolstered by the November sales figure of 9,800 deliveries. Market share is up half a percentage point, thanks to increased sales in 19 major markets that include the UK, Germany, Italy, and Spain.

“We are on track and our model offensive is bearing fruits. Models such as the Mokka and the ADAM are bullseyes“, said Peter Christian Küspert, Vice President Sales and Aftersales of the Opel Group. “Next year we will launch the Astra Sports Tourer and some other new products.”

Opel has expanded its lineup with the addition of the new Opel Astra. In the months since its reveal, more than 65,000 orders have been taken for the Astra, making it one of the brand’s single most popular models. Growth is likely to continue unabated in the years ahead as Opel plans to launch 29 new models between 2016 and 2020.
