After rising 28.7% in pre-WLTP August frenzy, the Portuguese new car market is logically down 14% in September to 12.783 units, bringing the year-to-date tally up 6.5% to 182.693. Peugeot (+1%) braves the adverse condition to post a year-on-year gain (the only one in the Top 10) and snap the pole position at 11.5% share vs. 9.8% year-to-date, followed by Mercedes (-6%) and BMW (-0.1%) while YTD leader Renault (-34%) tumbles down to #4. Outside the Top 10, Hyundai (+66%), Lexus (+39%), Jaguar (+35%), Volvo (+35%), Jeep (+33%), Seat (+13%), Mazda (+6%) and Mini (+4%) manage a positive result. Model-wise, the Mercedes A-Class (+42%) takes advantage of Renault’s post-WLTP hangover and its own facelift to take the overall lead for the first time in Portuguese history, its previous best performance being #3 in August 2015. It is followed by the Renault Clio (-9%), Peugeot 2008 (+9%), 308 (-9%) and Citroen C3 (-21%) while Peugeot manages to place 4 nameplates in the Top 7, adding the 208 (-16%) and 3008 (+44%). The BMW 5 Series (+20%) is up 31 spots on August to a record #8, the Nissan leaf is up 17-fold on the previous generation to #9 and the Opel Crossland X (+97%) is up 30 ranks on last month to round up the Top 10, all three aforementioned nameplates breaking their ranking record in Portugal. A very atypical month indeed.

New car sales in Portugal rise 28.7% year-on-year to 15.360 registrations, boosted like most EU markets by stock-clearances ahead of the new WLTP emissions standards put in place on September 1. This lifts the year-to-date tally up 8.4% to 169.906. Renault (+116%) gets a particularly strong (and artificial) boost at #1, whereas Peugeot (+24%) and Mercedes (-0.2%) are more measured. Fiat (+114%), Nissan (+85%), Hyundai (+77%) and Seat (+57%) dominate the year-on-year improvements in the remainder of the Top 15, with Jeep (+3325%), Porsche (+194%) and Alfa Romeo (+154%) making waves further down. The Renault Clio (+159%) and Megane (+175%) repeat at #1 and #2 and seemed to have a lot of stock to get rid of this month. They are followed by the Peugeot 208 (+21%), Mercedes A-Class (+42%) and Nissan Qashqai (+13%), posting more reserved improvements. The Nissan Leaf (+2129%), Peugeot 3008 (+197%), VW Polo (+195%), Toyota C-HR (+154%), VW Tiguan (+124%), Ford Fiesta (+113%) and Dacia Duster (+100%) can put their growth down to new models, but the Fiat Punto (+320%), Renault Kadjar (+190%), Nissan Juke (+177%), Fiat 500 (+122%), Audi A4 (+118%) are all artificial.
