Surge In-Sourcing Of Used Cars From Rental Companies: The revenue of the Car Rentals segment accounts for EUR 1,120 Million in 2019. The market is anticipated to grow roughly around a 3.0% growth rate from 2019 to 2023, resulting in a surge in the used car market in France due to the rising availability of cars.

The values of individual automotive loans delivered by specialized credit, institutions are EUR 3,538 Million for used cars and EUR 2,343 Million for new cars in France in 2018.
