French carmaker PSA said today that its worldwide sales slumped 27.8% in 2020 in a global automotive market hammered by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The company said total sales stood at 2.51 million vehicles last year. 

PSA also said sales in Europe recovered in the second half of last year and were back to growth in the fourth quarter. 

"This year of crisis was also an opportunity to develop e-selling", the company said in a statement, adding its target was to reach 100,000 digital sales in Europe by the end of 2021.

France's Renault on Monday reported a 21.3% drop in its worldwide sales in 2020.
