#Business : French new car registration growth slows in June

PARIS--The rebound in the French car market slowed in June after a 22% increase in May, as sales from cars made by French manufacturer Peugeot Citroen (UG.FR) and Germany's Volkswagen AG (VOW.XE) fell during the month.

New car registrations, a proxy for new car sales, rose 0.8% to 227,363 vehicles in June, according to data from the country's car manufacturing association CCFA.

After several years of decline, France's car market--Europe's largest after Germany and the U.K.--notched up strong growth in 2015 and the rebound has continued into 2016 against an improving economic backdrop and increased consumer spending.

Registrations of new cars made by French manufacturer Peugeot Citroen fell 5.1%, while Volkswagen cars, the most popular foreign brand in France, fell 11%. Peugeot's cross-town rival Renault SA (RNO.FR), meanwhile, performed well, with sales rising 7% in June.

Overall sales in the first half of 2016 rose 8.3%.
