The Syrian new car market edges up 9.3% year-on-year so far in 2018 to 8.720 registrations, but understandably given the dire situation the country finds itself in, only a handful of carmakers remain active here. Hyundai (+2%) holds onto the brands lead with 59.7% share but it’s Kia (+48%) that impresses this year, leaping up to 39.6% share. Nissan (-23%) only manages 63 sales. The Hyundai Elantra (+95%) almost doubles its sales year-on-year to brilliantly snap the models pole position with 25.7% share, distancing the 2017 leader the Hyundai Tucson (-27%), the Kia Cerato (+462%) and Sorento (+96%). The best-selling non-Korean nameplate is the Nissan Sunny at #12.

Despite the extremely confronting situation the country is enduring at the moment, new car sales in Yemen lift up 31.4% year-on-year over the first 10 months of 2018 to 4.227 units, and even +37.7% when removing BMW from the 2017 equation to compare the same set of brands as the German carmaker has stopped reporting sales for the region. In fact it’s Toyota that single-handedly pushes the Yemeni market up, soaring 51% to almost 4.000 units and 93.4% share just as Kia and Isuzu have left the market and Lexus (-33%) and Suzuki (-61%) fall to 31 and 12 sales respectively. Only Land Rover (-27%) and Nissan (-21%) manage to score three-digit sales figures on the podium. The Top 5 best-selling models all gain significant ground year-on-year, with the Toyota Land Cruiser (+47%) comfortably holding onto the top spot with 41.2% share ahead of the Land Cruiser Pickup (+78%), Hilux (+35%), Prado (+70%) and Fortuner (+144%). The Toyota RAV4 (+205%) leaps into the Top 10 and the Range Rover Velar lands directly at #10.

The New Zealand new vehicle market reaches a new all-time high monthly volume in October at 16.670 units, smashing the previous all-time best of 15.985 established in June 2017 and up 7.6% year-on-year, leading to a YTD volume also at a record high 136.063, up 1.7% on the previous record established over the same period in 2017. Toyota (+12%) outpaces the market to reach a gargantuan 30% share vs. 19.3% YTD, posting its largest monthly volume ever in New Zealand at 4.998 units. The Japanese manufacturer was helped by its domination of the rental market, always bustling during these pre-Summer months: 88% of Corollas registered in October were to rental companies, 82% of RAV4, 79% of Highlander, 75% of Prado and 61% of Yaris.

Holden (+7%) posts a performance in total contrast with its dismal figures in neighbouring Australia, even climbing up 3 spots on September to #2 overall. It distances Ford (-16%), Mazda (+14%) and Mitsubishi (+19%) with Volkswagen (+25%) and Nissan (+14%) also standing out in the Top 10. Haval (+200%), Bentley (+167%), Citroen (+158%), Alfa Romeo (+150%), Renault (+137%), Great Wall (+133%), Jeep (+106%), Skoda (+92%), LDV (+62%), Volvo (+46%) and Honda (+24%) also make waves. The Toyota Corolla (-2%) tops the models ranking with an ultra-dominant 10.5% share but is stuck at #3 YTD for now. At #2, the Toyota RAV4 (+108%) more than doubles its sales year-on-year thanks to rental and is now up to #4 YTD. The Ford Ranger (+3%) and Toyota Hilux (+6%) have timid months but remains in the YTD lead in this order, with the Mazda CX-5 (+40%), Holden Colorado (+29%) and Mitsubishi Triton (+23%) also in great shape in the Top 10.

Nissan (+93.8%) makes up for a particularly weak score in October 2017 due to an inspection scandal, while Mitsubishi (+22.4%) and Hino (+22.4%) also impress inside the Top 10. Subaru (-2.5%) is the only carmaker in negative in the Top 12.

Thanks to a mid-life facelift giving it a more SUV look and new seating configurations, the Toyota Sienta (+47%) leaps up six spots on September to land in 2nd place, the nameplate’s highest ranking in almost 3 years, since November 2015. Below the Toyota Prius (-12%), the Toyota Corolla (+33%) is boosted by the new generation hatch as is the Toyota Crown (+193%) up 6 ranks on September to land in 8th position, a ranking it hadn’t reached since November 2013.

As for all-new launches, the Suzuki Xbee is the most popular at #32 with 1.960 sales above the Mazda CX-8 at #37 and 1.396 and the Honda CR-V at #41 and 1.129.

The Honda CR-V is back on sale at home in Japan.

Over in the kei cars ranking, the Honda N-BOX (-3%) and Daihatsu Move (-15%) maintain their hold on the charts despite both dropping year-on-year, in contrast with their direct followers: the Suzuki Spacia (+72%), Daihatsu Tanto (+8%), Nissan Dayz (+90%) and Daihatsu Mira (+26%).

Although not part of the European Union, new car sales in Switzerland continue to be impacted by stock shortages triggered by the change-over to WLTP, at -7.8% to 22.788 units, pulling the year-to-date volume down 3.2% to 248.074. Despite a painful drop, Volkswagen (-21%) edges back above Mercedes (+20%) itself in excellent shape, to reclaim the top spot, but just: only 28 sales separate the two manufacturers. BMW (-1%), Audi (-10%) and Skoda (-12%) round up the Top 5, while Volvo (+35%) and Ford (+9%) are the only other Top 10 brands in positive. Further down, Mitsubishi (+98%), Jaguar (+67%), Lexus (+52%), Ferrari (+35%), Jeep (+33%), Subaru (+22%) and Alfa Romeo (+17%) are among the rare carmakers registering a year-on-year gain whereas at the other end of the scale Seat (-41%), Nissan (-31%), Opel (-29%), Citroen (-27%), Porsche (-27%), Mazda (-20%), Fiat (-18%) and Suzuki (-18%) freefall.
