Passenger-car registrations in the European Union fell strongly in August, as EU markets showed a weak performance during the summer amid a semiconductor shortage.

New car registrations--a reflection of sales--declined 19% on year to 622,993 vehicles in August, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association said Thursday. The EU's major markets--Spain, France, Italy and Germany--all reported strong decreases.

One month earlier, in July, car registrations across the EU fell 23% year-on-year to 823,949 vehicles, said the organization, also known as ACEA.

However, new registrations in the first eight months of the year rose 11% to 6.8 million passenger cars.

"Despite the weak performance of EU markets during the summer months, substantial gains earlier in the year kept cumulative growth in positive territory," said ACEA.
