The aftermath of the pre-WLTP sales pull-forward continues to impact the new car market in Spain, down for the 2nd straight month in October at -5% to 90.364 units, however the year-to-date tally remains in frank positive territory at +10.2% to 1.139.030 sales after 10 months, the highest volume at this stage of the year since 2007 (1.345.519). Logically, private sales – the least affected by the pre-WLTP rush – resist best this month at -1% to 54.927 and 60.8% share vs 58.3% a year ago, with company sales down 8.2% to 30.427 and 33.7% vs. 34.8% and rental sales the hardest hit at -23.1% to 5.010 and 5.5% vs. 6.9%. Year-to-date, it’s the turn of company sales to perform best at +17.4% to 352.539 and 31% share vs. 29.1% over the same period in 2017, with private sales up 7.3% to 527.136 and 49.7% vs. 51% and rental sales up 7.2% to 220.802 and 19.4% vs. 19.9%.

The Peugeot 2008 soars 50% to 4th place in October.

Peugeot (+26%) enjoys a 2nd consecutive month as the favourite brand in Spain thanks to a very sturdy uptick, whereas Seat (-18%) and Volkswagen (-13%) struggle on the podium. The rest of the Top 10 is by and large healthier than the market with Citroen (+19%), Hyundai (+15%), Ford (+11%), Mercedes (+9%) and Toyota (+5%) all in positive but Renault (-47%) and Opel (-13%) suffer. Further down, Volvo (+82%), Jeep (+63%), DS (+53%), Dacia (+36%), BMW (+35%), Mitsubishi (+25%) and Lexus (+19%) all excel while on the other end of the ladder, Porsche (-67%), Audi (-56%), Ssangyong (-53%), Land Rover (-50%), Mahindra (-40%) and Fiat (-30%) dive. Model-wise, the Dacia Sandero soars 44% year-on-year to snap its 9th monthly win in Spain, the first in 2018. Previous wins were in JanuaryAugustDecember 2013August, September 2014November 2015, August and December 2017.

The Seat Arona is up to a record 6th place at home.

The VW Polo (+172%) surfs on the new generation to return to #2, last held last June. The Seat Leon (-46%) is in a worrying situation but manages to remain on the podium and holds onto the YTD pole position. Like in September, Peugeot places two nameplates in the Top 5 with both the 2008 (+50%) and 3008 (+45%) posting superb gains. The Seat Arona (+679%) looks like it has finally found its mojo at home, up a further two spots on September to reach a new record 6th place, the highest ranking for the nameplate anywhere in the world. The Toyota C-HR (+98%) is also in great shape even though it is down 5 spots on its record-breaking 6th place last month, with other great performers in the Top 50 including the Hyundai Kona (+299%), Kia Stonic (+105%), BMW 1-Series (+75%), Citroen C3 Aircross (+69%), BMW X1 (+52%), Mercedes A-Class (+43%), Citroen C4 Cactus (+42%), Ford Fiesta (+31%) and Dacia Duster (+22%).

The Chevrolet Onix hits its highest volume ever in Brazil this month.

* See the Top 20 best-selling brands and Top 150 models by clicking on the title *

New light vehicle sales in Brazil enjoys an 18th month in a row of year-on-year gains in October at +24.5% to 244.740 registrations, the market’s largest gain since last April and the largest October result since 2014 (291.412). The year-to-date volume is now up 14.4% to 2.024.388 units, the highest result since 2015 (2.066.947). Chevrolet (+21%) remains the most popular carmaker in the country at 18% share vs. 17.2% so far this year, despite trailing the market slightly. In contrast, Volkswagen (+58%), Renault (+36%) now #5 YTD and Fiat (+34%) frankly beat the market. All other Top 10 marques lose share vs. October 2017 with Jeep (+24%) solid, but Nissan (+13%), Honda (+12%), Ford (+7%), Hyundai (+7%) and Toyota (+2%) weak. Further down, Chery (+292%) is by far the best performer in the remainder of the Top 20, breaking its volume record to 1.330 (previous best 1.235 in October 2013) and scoring the highest volume by a Chinese carmaker in Brazil in over 5 years: since May 2013 (JAC at 1.443). Volvo (+152%) and Kia (+28%) are also strong.

The Citroen C4 Cactus has landed in Brazil.

Model-wise, over three years after taking the lead of the ranking and never looking back (39 consecutive months at #1 since), the Chevrolet Onix (+22%) manages to break its all-time monthly volume record for the second time in the past three months at 22.324 (previous best 21.763 last August). It also signs its most dominant win ever at x2.13 the sales of the #2 ranked car, the Ford Ka (10.461). Its previous record was x2.10 last January 2018. The VW Gol (+43%) continues to rebound but is stuck in 4th place, while the Fiat Argo (+65%) breaks its volume record at 6.881, edging up to #8 YTD and the Renault Kwid (+51%), Sandero (+48%), Fiat Toro (+37%) and Strada (+34%) easily outpace the market. The VW Polo (#9) remains the most popular recent launch (<12 months) way above its sedan variant the VW Virtus (#20), the Toyota Yaris Hatch (#27), Fiat Cronos (#31) and Toyota Yaris Sedan (#33). The Chery Tiggo 2 crosses the symbolic 1.000 monthly sales mark for the first time and we welcome the Citroen C4 Cactus at #58, already the brand’s best-seller in Brazil.

Turkey October 2018: Civic sole survivor in imploding market (-76.6%)

The Honda Civic, interest-free for the month, remains Turkey’s best-seller.

* See the Top 42 All-brands and Top 220 All-models by clicking on the title *

Just as inflation rates reach their highest level in 15 years, the nightmare year continues for the Turkish new car market, and even worsens with sales freefalling at -76.6% to 21.571 units, following a 14.8% drop in May, 39% in June35.9% in July52.6% in August and -75% in September. As a result the year-to-date volume is down 32.6% at 485.027. In the brands ranking, Fiat (-77%) is up 4 spots on September to take the lead and Ford (-77%) remains at #2, both carmakers matching the market whereas Honda (-2%) once again posts a fantastic performance, by far the best hold and the only carmaker to drop less than 62% (!) in the Top 15. In fact, among the remaining brands selling more than 10 units this month, only Alfa Romeo (+14%) is in positive, and only Volvo (-27%) and Porsche (-49%) manage to lose less than half their sales vs. October 2017. An absolute butchery indeed, with Audi (-95%), Isuzu (-91%), Opel (-88%), Renault (-86%), Seat (-85%), BMW (-83%), Peugeot (-82%), Volkswagen (-82%), Citroen (-81%), Suzuki (-81%) and Mazda (-80%) the hardest hit.

The best-selling model in Turkey for the month, the Honda Civic (+22%) signs a third consecutive win and manages to be the only Top 40 nameplate in positive, with the next best performing nameplates being the Hyundai Tucson (-24%), Nissan Micra (-36%) and Ford Ranger (-45%) and the remaining 36 models all losing at least half their sales vs. October 2017. One element helping the Civic stay afloat again is Honda’s offer throughout October, raiding the 12 months interest-free credit limit for the model to 50 thousand TL. The Volvo S60 (+74%), Citroen Jumpy (+21%), Suzuki Baleno (+21%), Alfa Romeo Giulietta (+5%), Kia Niro (+5%) and Seat Ateca (+4%) are the only other models in positive inside the Top 120. The Skoda Karoq (#54) is up four spots on last month to top all recent launches (<12 months) ahead of the Ford Ecosport at #70 (+32), Seat Arona at #87 (+31), Opel Grandland X at #89 (+21), Mercedes X-Class at #94 (-39) and Volvo XC40 at #95 (-33).

Sweden October 2018: Bonus/malus and post-WLTP hit sales: -28.1%

The Volvo XC40 is back up to a best-ever 6th place at home.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 225 All-models by clicking on the title *

New car sales in Sweden continue to suffer from the aftermath of two major pull-forward events that occurred earlier this year: a new bonus-malus pricing system that advantages green cars and the pre-WLTP registrations rush felt throughout the European Union. As a result, October sales plunge 28.1% year-on-year to 23.088 and send year-to-date volume into negative territory at -2.3% to 304.916 units. Brand leaders Volvo (-41%) and Volkswagen (-43%) implode to much lower shares vs YTD but still top the ranking this month. Kia (-1%) is back down to #3 but manages the 2nd-best hold in the Top 10 below Ford (+8%), the only carmaker in positive in the Top 14. BMW (-3%) and Mercedes (-10%) also resist well but Audi (-51%) and Nissan (-42%) implode. Further down, Jaguar (+209%), Jeep (+79%), Mini (+41%), Land Rover (+18%), Mitsubishi (+14%) and Tesla (+2%) are the only brand lodging a gain in Sweden.

The new generation lifts VW Polo sales up 6-fold in September.

The Volvo S/V90 (-23%) is back to the lead of the Swedish models ranking, a ranking it holds year-to-date, but its October share (5.5%) remains below YTD (7%). The rest of the Top 5 is shockingly all crumbling apart and losing more ground than an already freefalling market, with the Volvo XC60 (-73%) and VW Passat (-59%) hit the hardest and the VW Golf (-45%) and Volvo S/V60 (-33%) also struggling. The Volvo XC40 is up one spot on September to a record-equalling #6, also hit last July. The VW Polo surges 507%, alongside the Kia Niro (+17%) and Kia Cee’d (+3%) the only nameplates in positive in the Top 15. The Nissan Leaf (+353%), Renault Zoe (+151%), Ford Focus (+87%), Toyota C-HR (+66%), Mitsubishi Outlander (+40%) and Renault Clio (+27%) also stand out in the remainder of the Top 30.

Norway October 2018: Jaguar i-Pace up to world-best 5th place

The Jaguar i-Pace is the 5th best-selling vehicle in Norway in October.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 20 models by clicking on the title *

Even though Norway isn’t part of the European Union, it remains affected by the post-WLTP slump due to the lack of availability of compliant vehicles. October sales drop 6.6% year-on-year to 11.655 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down 4.4% to 123.155. Volkswagen (-32%) climbs back up 5 spots on September to reclaim the pole position it holds year-to-date, this despite another ghastly fall. Nissan (+173%) at 11.7% continues to surf on the success of the new generation Leaf that accounts for 11.1% share alone and is back to the model pole position in October. Toyota (-26%), Volvo (+11%) and BMW (-4%) round up the Top 5.

But the event this month is the 20-fold year-on-year surge of Jaguar up 11 spots on last month to brilliantly break into the Top 10 at #8 overall, which is most probably the highest ranking reached by the premium English brand in any major European (and world) market. The culprit: the electric i-Pace leaping to an astounding 5th place in October with 441 sales and 3.8% share. Renault (+426%) thanks to the Zoe up 23-fold, Alfa Romeo (+208%), Hyundai (+46%), Mazda (+29%) and Porsche (+27%) also show outstanding health. In the models ranking, the Kia Soul (+189%), Mazda CX-5 (+123%), Ford Focus (+73%), Volvo XC60 (+64%), BMW i3 (+26%) and Hyundai Ioniq (+26%) also shine while last month’s leader, the Tesla Model X, falls back down to #21.

The Taiwanese new car market edges down -1.3% year-on-year in October to 35.048 registrations, an evolution we also find with the year-to-date volumes at 357.132. Brand leader Toyota falls slightly faster than the market at -3% to 22.3% share vs. 23.7% so far in 2018. Volkswagen (+26%), Lexus (+21%), Mercedes (+13%) and Mitsubishi/CMC (+10%) all manage to brave the adverse conditions by posting double-digit gains in the Top 10. Mazda (+6%) also shines whereas BMW (-24%), Ford (-13%), Honda (-9%) and Nissan/Infiniti (-8%) all struggle. Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla (-38%) is once again strongly impacted by the arrival of the Auris (aka Corolla hatch) even though the latter is down 6 spots on its inaugural month to #21, with the Toyota RAV4 (-9%) and CMC Veryca (+46%) rounding up the podium. The Toyota C-HR (+173%), Lexus ES (+166%), VW Tiguan (+166%), Mercedes GLC (+55%), Nissan Sentra (+51%), Toyota Vios (+34%), Yaris (+30%) and Mazda CX-5 (+27%) also impress near the top.

Europe September 2018: Post-WLTP knocks VW (-52%), lifts Opel to #1

Opel is the #1 brand in Europe for the first time in 13 years, and the Corsa snaps its maiden #1 finish.

* Now updated with actuals for the Top 10 groups, Top 70 brands and Top 410 models *

These are very unusual times for the European market, a situation created by new WLTP emission and consumption measurement standards in place since September 1. In August, an artificial 30.1% surge was triggered by pulled forward sales of non-compliant vehicles before the cutoff date. According to exclusive final figures obtained through our partnership with JATO Dynamics, September deliveries logically plunge 23.4% year-on-year to 1.119.956 units. Just as August 2018 was the largest volume in 20 years, this is the lowest September score since 1998 (1.068.622). The Top 5 markets are all down sharply: Germany (-30.5%), Italy (-25.5%)the UK (-20.5%), Spain (-15.9%) and France (-12.8%). Out of the 30 countries surveyed, only Bulgaria (+8.5%) and Croatia (+3.3%) post a gain. The markets hardest hit are Romania (-73.4%), Austria (-41.8%), Sweden (-39.7%), Slovakia (-37%), Luxembourg (-34.6%) and Belgium (-33.6%). Year-to-date European volumes remain in positive though at +2.3% to 12.260.471 units.

BMW (-7.4%) is up to #3 brand in Europe this month.

Last month Renault (+72%), Nissan (+49%) and Volkswagen (+44%) were the most aggressive users of artificial pre-WLTP stock clearances. Now burdened with large amounts of 0km vehicles to be sold as 2nd hand filling dealerships, they are among the ones enduring the harshest declines in September. The groups ranking indeed gets a significant shake: PSA (-8.4%) is up two spots on August to lead the way with 17.9% share, firmly overtaking the VW Group (-48.4%) losing almost half its sales vs. September 2018 to 15.7% share vs. 23.2% a year ago and 24.2% so far in 2018. Renault-Nissan (-33.1%) and FCA (-32.1%) endure the largest declines, whereas the Geely Group (+3.1%), in fact Volvo, is the only Top 10 group in positive when Toyota Motor (-3.2%), Hyundai-Kia (-6.9%), the BMW Group (-8.9%) and to a lesser extent Daimler (-14.1%) and Ford (-14.4%) all contain their fall.

The Mercedes A-Class is the best-selling compact vehicle, outselling the VW Golf…

Brand-wise, it’s a lightning strike atop the ranking: replicating the wild situation we witnessed in Germany, Volkswagen (-52.6%) tumbles down to 5th place. According to ACEA, it is only the third time since the turn of the century that VW is not #1 in Europe, the other two times were in March 2004 and 2005. Then, the leader of the market was Opel/Vauxhall (-12.5%) which coincidentally leaps up 3 spots on August to land in the European pole position, a ranking it had not held, you guessed it, since March 2005. Ford (-14.4%) is up two ranks to #2, BMW (-7.4%) is up 6 to #3 and Mercedes (-13.9%) is up 2 to #4. In the Top 25, Volvo (+3.2%), Mitsubishi (+18.6%) and Jaguar (+28.7%) are the only three brands in positive. Toyota (-2.5%) and Peugeot (-4.6%) also resist well in the Top 10 while Kia (-2.3%), Citroen (-3.9%), Mazda (-9.2%) and Hyundai (-10.8%) are relatively solid further down. Audi (-60.4%), Nissan (-44.7%), Fiat (-34.6%), Renault (-32.8%), Seat (-32.8%) and Skoda (-29.4%) would rather forget this month.

The Peugeot 3008 is the best-selling SUV in Europe for the first time.

The models ranking is going through an even more stormy ride, with the Opel Corsa (+5.4%) crowned as the European best-seller for the first time in the nameplate’s 36 year-career, while the VW Golf (-71.1%) is knocked out of the European Top 10 at #12 with no record of it happening at any time since the very first generation launched 44 years ago back in 1974. Below the Ford Fiesta (+19.6%) and Renault Clio (-18.2%), the Toyota Yaris (+1.5%) breaks its all-time European raking record for the 2nd time in the past 3 months at #4 vs. #7 last July and the Mercedes A-Class (+7.1%) tops the compact segment fo the first time in history at a stupendous 6th place overall, slicing its ranking record in 3 (previous best #18 in September 2017.

The JAC iEV7S has landed in Europe, namely in Croatia.

But the exploits don’t stop there: the Citroen C3 (+1.3%) equals its highest position at #7 (also reached last March) and the Peugeot 3008 (+7.6%) is the most popular SUV on the continent also for the first time in history at #9 overall. Other ranking record-breakers include the BMW 1 Series (#11) outselling the VW Golf (!), Hyundai Tucson (#14), Kia Sportage (#23), Toyota C-HR (#24) and Ford Ecosport (#30). All best-selling recent launches (<12 months) also reach their highest showing this month: the Volvo XC40 (#58), BMW X2 (#82), Jaguar E-Pace (#121), Peugeot Rifter (#172), Audi Q8 (#177) and MG ZS (#223) and we welcome the McLaren Senna (#352) and JAC iEV7S (#408).

Mexico September 2018: Mazda, Toyota and premium brands soften drop to lowest yet

Land Rover sales shoot up 438% year-on-year in Mexico in September…

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 280 All-models by clicking on the title *

Although new light vehicle sales in Mexico register a 16th consecutive month of year-on-year decline in September, it is the smallest drop so far at -1.5% to 114.673 and the market’s best performance since its last year-on-year gain in at +1.1% in May 2017. The case for a softening of the negative trend is now gaining traction after declines of 7% or less over the previous four months. As a result the year-to-date volume is down 7.1% to 1.028.490 units. But once again and for the 8th connective month, brand leader Nissan falls much faster than the market at -10% to 22.1% share, in line with the 22.3% it commands YTD. On the other hand Chevrolet (+4%) is in positive but remains far below at 15.7% share vs. 15.2% YTD. In fact, there are more gains than losses in the Top 10 brands this month with Mazda (+22%), Toyota (+10%), Kia (+7%) hitting its best share since January at 7%, Honda (+2%) and Hyundai (+0.1%) also with a smile. Ford (-27%) and Volkswagen (-16%) struggle however. Further down, Land Rover (+438%), Jaguar (+375%), Mercedes (+54%), Suzuki (+53%), BMW (+50%), Lamborghini (+50%), Mini (+45%), Acura (+43%) and Volvo (+43%) stand out.

…while Jaguar is up 375%, boosted by the arrival of the E-Pace.

Momentous event in the models ranking, our reporting includes back nameplates from brands who had stopped sharing detail in 2018 such as Acura, Honda, Infiniti, Nissan, Renault, Seat and Volkswagen (note YTD tallies for these models remain estimated), but also nameplates from most premium brands that had only rarely been available previously: Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes and Volvo. The total number of nameplates included in 2018 YTD therefore jumps from 220 to 300. All-in-all, the Nissan Versa (+22%) reclaims the top spot off the Chevrolet Aveo (+93%) with the Nissan Pickup (-2%), VW Vento (+1%) and Chevrolet Beat (-9%) rounding up the Top 5. Like last month there are two Kias in the Top 10: the Rio (-7%) at #8 and the Forte (+57%) at a new record #9 while the Nissan Kicks breaks into the Mexican Top 10 for the first time at #10. The Honda BR-V (#29) tops all recent launches ahead of the Renault Oroch (#46), Seat Arona (#71), Toyota C-HR (#73), Honda Insight (#93), VW Teramont (#98), Kia Sedona (#122), Hyundai Starex (#131) and BAIC D20 (#139).

The South African new vehicle market edges down 1.9% year-on-year in September to 49.670 registrations, however exports reach a record for the month at 36.781 units, up 1.2% on September 2017. Back to sales with dealer sales accounting for 78.6% of the total, rentals at 16.5%, corporate fleets at 2.7% and government sales at 2.2%. Cars are down 2.6% to 32.786 (with rentals at 23.4% in this segment), while light commercials enduring a more subdued drop at -1.2% to 14.342. Year-to-date, new vehicle sales in South Africa are down just 0.8% to 412.916 units. No surprises in the manufacturers ranking: the Top 9 reflects the YTD order, with Toyota (+11%) on top followed by the VW Group (+7%), Ford (-11%), Nissan (-1%) and Hyundai-Kia (-17%). Renault (+8%) and Suzuki (+21%) are the only two other Top 10 carmakers in positive. Mahindra (+48%), Volvo (+46%) and FCA (+74%) stand out further down.

Model-wise, the Toyota Hilux (-1%) reclaims the top spot it holds year-to-date despite a slight drop, while the VW Polo (+66%) lurks only 77 sales below at #2, once again boosted by the new generation just as the Ford Ranger (+29%) posts a very strong score in third place. The VW Polo Vivo (-34%) suffers from its younger sibling’s health but the Toyota Yaris (+1108%!), Fortuner (+35%) and Nissan NP200 aka Dacia Logan Pickup (+15%) are also sturdy in the remainder of the Top 10. Below, the VW Tiguan (+152%), Renault Clio (+149%) and Hyundai Grand i10 (+114%) impress while the Toyota Rush (#44) leads all recent launches (<12 months) ahead of the Volvo XC40 (#90) and Jaguar E-Pace (#100).

Malaysia September 2018: Proton, Mazda, Ford resist in post-GST slump

Is a rebadged Geely Boyue the key to Proton’s fortune reversal at home? It would appear so.

* See the Top 45 All-brands by clicking on the title *

After three months boosted by the absence of GST, now that prices are back to normal the Malaysian market logically falls 23.8% year-on-year in September to 31.241 registrations, yet the year-to-date tally remains boosted by this super summer at +6.9% to 454.971. Leader Perodua (-34.8%) skids faster than the market but sells almost double any other carmaker present in the country at 30.3% share vs. 15.9% for #2 Honda (-37%). For once Proton (+1%) goes agains the grain and posts a year-on-year uptick as is also the case in the Top 10 for Mazda (+65%), Ford (+31%), Isuzu (+3%) and BMW (+1%) whereas Mercedes (-45%) and Toyota (-31%) struggle. Further down, great gainers include Kia (+47%), Mitsubishi (+46%), Daihatsu (+45%), Mini (+44%), Renault (+38%) and Peugeot (+21%). Note Proton says it has registered 10.000 bookings for its first-ever SUV, the X70 (pictured) which is in fact a rebadged Geely Boyue, Geely having purchased the Proton brand in 2017. 2.000 of these booking were made were made via the , open since October 17, which required customers to pay a fee of RM99, with the remaining 8.000 bookings had customers placing a deposit of RM1,000 at official Proton dealerships across the country which they can do since September 8. Proton September sales aren’t affected yet but it will be interesting to see the brand’s evolution over the coming months.
