European passenger car registrations fell for the eleventh consecutive month in March, a report from the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association or ACEA revealed Thursday. Car registrations were down 9% in March after declining around 18% in February.

According to ACEA, the result was lifted by the on average three more working days across the region and the effect of fleet renewal schemes in a number of countries.

In the first quarter, new registrations totaled 3.43 million, down 17.2% from 4.15 million units registered in the same period last year.
