According to data released by our partner JATO Dynamics, new car sales in Luxembourg freefall 34.6% year-on-year in September to 2.596 (after surging 22.1% in August) in one of the most severe post-WLTP hangover cases in the European Union. Year-to-date volumes are up 3.7% to 42.369. This month we inaugurate new and extended coverage of Luxembourg now including an all-brands ranking. It’s an unusual month that sees Mercedes (14.2%) and BMW (12%) post much higher-than-average market share to dominate the September charts ahead of Peugeot (7.6%) while Volkswagen is relegated to 4th place at 7.2% share vs. 12.8% so far this year.
Volvo (6.4%) also impresses at #5 vs. #11 as do Opel (6%), Citroen (3.7%) and Jaguar (2.1%). For now only on sale in Luxembourg, Borgward adds up to 10 units here so far this year, including one in September. In the models order, Mercedes manages the incredible feat of placing the GLC at #1 and A-Class at #2, the latter earning a 7th spot YTD in the process. The BMW X3 is lifted up 8-fold year-on-year by the new generation to round up a podium 100% premium above the VW Golf (-75%) and Peugeot 3008 (-33%).
