National figures for the month show that nine out of the 15 European Union countries posted increases, ranging from +0.6% in Germany to +29.2% in Finland.
Spain, which was up 12.6%, was the best performer among the five bigger markets, while Portugal (+6.8%) and Denmark (+0.9%) are back to positive results for the first time this year.
However, there were some losers in the figures, produced by the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, including a 1.5% fall in the UK to a market down 17% in Ireland.
Total sales reached 1,046,147 units in Europe during November, an increase of 1.1% on the same month the previous year.
However, year-to-date sales figures reached 13,239,261, a drop of 1.3% on last year's 13,411,302 units.
