European motor manufacturers have enjoyed 24 successive months of growth, according to new figures published this week.
They show that August's new vehicle registrations jumped by 11.5% - marking two entire years' expansion in the European carmaking sector.
This is despite the fact the month is traditionally one of the slackest in the industry's calendar.
Motorists buying a car are increasingly purchasing from the continent's motor manufacturers. Tuesday's Association of European Automobile Manufacturers (ACEA) figures show that 781,676 cars have been registered in August, reflecting demand.
This represents a substantial increase from the 701,251 registered across the European Union and European Free Trade Association in the same month last year.
The ACEA latest revised estimate predicts a 5% Europe-wide increase in vehicle registrations in 2015 - but experts believe this figure may be a conservative one.
Europe's sales continue to soar, despite downturns elsewhere in the world, most notably in China and Russia.
Italy, Poland, France and Portugal lead the way, achieving double-digit growth last month. The UK and Germany manufacturers have also bolstered sales with registrations up by 9.6% and 6.2% respectively.
European sales so far this year have climbed from 8.64 million vehicles in the opening eight months of 2014 to 9.38 million units in the same period this year - a rise of 8.6%.
The Association also announced July's figures on the same day following its summer break.
These revealed 1.18 million units registered - a hike of 9.5%.
