Genesis, BYD, Bugatti and Cupra had triple-digit sales gains in September. Meanwhile, Polestar, Maserati, MG, Rolls-Royce, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz were among the 25 brands that had double-digit percentage increases in an overall European market that was up by 8 percent.
Hyundai Group's luxury brand Genesis was up nearly 700 percent to 382 registrations compared with just 48 during September 2021 when it was just entering the market.
China's BYD, which debuted multiple models at this month's Paris auto show, increased sales more than 200 percent from a low base last year, led by the Tang seven-seat midsize SUV.
Volkswagen Group's Cupra subsidiary rose 131 percent, helped by strong demand for the Born electric compact, which accounted for 3,520 sales, up from 2,879 in August. Also, sales for the Cupra Formentor nearly doubled to 10,124 in September, according to figures from market researcher Dataforce.
Volvo Cars subsidiary Polestar increased sales 95 percent on demand for the Polestar 2, which was Europe's No. 5-selling midsize premium car -- ahead of the combined sales from the Volvo S60 and V60 -- after nine months.
