At Ouestfrance-auto.com, we like to think of ourselves as superheroes, able to find the best used cars for every driver! After all, the automotive sphere is going through a turbulent period and the task is not easy.
Fall in sales of used cars
In the fall of 2022, the automotive world continues to move forward in slow motion. Covid crisis, shortage of electronic components, extension of delivery times for new cars, enthusiasm and then shortage transferred to used cars, war in Ukraine… So many important events for several months have tested sellers of cars with dwindling stocks. The latest used vehicles are the most affected with a significant drop in sales of 24.2%.
Good news, sales of new cars have increased as well 3.8% in August 2022 compared to August 2021 according to AAA-Data. This improvement comes after more than a year of consecutive declines.
A thinning in Brittany and Normandy
Despite this difficult context, certain regions in the West are doing better in August than other regions in France. According to AAA-Data, there has been an increase in registrations in Normandy on +21% and off +6% in Brittany.
Potential for car ads in the West
Thanks to its position as the leader of car classifieds sites in the great west, visitors to Ouest France Auto can discover more than 20,000 used car ads in Brittany, but also in the Pays de la Loire region, and more than 10,000 cars for sale in Normandy.

Finally, for fans of two-wheeled, 125cc & large displacement scooters, there are more than 4,000 ads for used motorcycles available at Ouestfrance-auto.com.
Dille for rent with option to buy
Drivers are moving more easily towards leasing with an option to buy (LOA) to ensure they find a newer car. Drivers increasingly tend to buy their car at the end of their lease. To buy his car in LOA, the driver must pay the balance due at the end of his contract to become the owner.
According to Laure Nivot, Market Intelligence Manager at AAA DATA, this phenomenon can be explained “probably due to the lack of availability of new cars and the inflation affecting the used market.”
Essential tools dedicated to used vehicles
The whole team off Ouestfrance-auto.com, 1st car advertising site in the West, puts on his superhero costume to help each visitor find the vehicle they need.
