According to foreign media reports, French car registrations fell by 15% in December due to a "Yew" protest against French President Emmanuel Macron's economic policies. In December, sales of luxury cars were more pronounced as anti-government activities spread throughout France.

When the demonstrations took place on Saturday, the protests led to a 16% drop in retail sales. Because distributors in the French suburbs gathered near traffic circles and shopping malls, protestors blocked traffic and potential consumers preferred to stay at home, which affected car dealers.

Porsche's sales in France fell 73% in December, Alfa Romeo's 51% and Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz's 39%, 31% and 22% respectively. Sales of Nissan and Jeep brands in France also performed poorly in December, with sales falling by 57% and 45%, respectively.

The French Automobile Industry Association (CCFA) said Toyota's new car sales fell 15% to 165,390 units. December has 20 sales days, the same as December 2017.
