France October 2018: PSA, Toyota help contain post-WLTP drop to -1.5%

14 months after launch, the C3 Aircross hits a record 2.5% share, helping Citroen up 14.7%.

* Now updated with the Top 40 brands, Top 270 models and Top 10 private sales *

The pre-WLTP rush aftermath, after cutting new car sales in France by 12.8% in September, has greatly reduced its impact with October registrations down just 1.5% to 173.799, in fact -5.8% in daily rates given this month has one additional opening day compared to October 2017. The year-to-date tally is now up 5.7% to 1.836.481 which is now the 4th largest 10 month volume in French history below 1990 (1.973.172), 1989 (1.921.716), 2001 (1.912.485) and 2011 (1.837.474). Private sales happily go against the market at +3.3% to 92.635 sales and 53.3% share vs. just 50.8% in October 2017. In contrast, artificial sales are logically panting with short-term rentals freefalling 24% and demo sales down 4%. So far this year, private sales also outpace the market at +6.7% to 881.500 units and 48% share vs. 47.5% over the same period in 2017.

Peugeot is the best-selling carmaker at home for the 6th time this year: a first.

Peugeot (+8.3%) vastly outperforms its home market once again to remain in first position for the 6th time in the past 10 months, a situation unheard of before in France. The brand benefits from its outstanding handling of the transition to WLTP with its entire lineup compliant well before the September 1 deadline, and crosses the symbolic 20% share mark for the 2nd time this year – and this decade – bettering its score to 20.12%. Peugeot sees its company sales up 9.5% (including long-term leases) to snap the #1 brand title on this channel with 12.569 sales vs. 10.486 for Renault (-8.2%), its private sales grow by 6.5% to 15.808, demo sales are up 21% to 4.041 and self-registrations are up 41.7% to 1.136 due to the launch of the Rifter and the new generation 508.

Toyota outsells Volkswagen to rank #1 foreign marque in France for the 2nd straight month.

Renault (-9.7%) falls faster than its home market, once again paying the price of overusing artificial registrations in the pre-WLTP period last summer. Showing an encouraging turn of events, Citroen (+14.7%) posts a third double-digit gain in the past 4 months to hit 10.8% share, its highest since last January (11%). Even more encouraging is Citroen’s stunning 33% uptick with private buyers this month. Cementing its 4th place YTD above Volkswagen, Dacia (+19.4%) brilliantly signs the largest gain in the Top 15, while Toyota (+18.3%) also posts an extremely strong result to remain inside the French Top 5 for only the 2nd time in history after last month. Other great performers include Mitsubishi (+69.4%), Seat (+26.5%), Volvo (+22.2%, +38% for private sales), Skoda (+15.5%), Mercedes (+14.7%, private +17.6%), Ford (+13.7%, private +17.6%), Honda (+12.9%), Jaguar (+12.7%), Mini (+8.2%), Hyundai (+8%, private +19.6%), Kia (+7.9%) and Opel (+5.2%, private +16.9%). At the other end of the scale, Volkswagen (-23.6%) whose lineup isn’t yet 100% WLTP-compliant, continues to struggle but the hardest hit in the Top 20 are Audi (-53.3%) and Nissan (-48.6%) and further down Infiniti (-93%) at 10 sales vs. 421 in August, Ssangyong (-76.6%), Alfa Romeo (-71.3%), Porsche (-71.3%), Tesla (-67.7%), Land Rover (-61.3%) and Subaru (-56.7%).

Volvo private sales soar 38% year-on-year in France this month, mainly thanks to the XC40. 

The top of the models ranking returns to the YTD order with the Renault Clio (+9%), Peugeot 208 (+6%), Peugeot 3008 (+15%) and Citroen C3 (+20%) the most popular. In fact, the entire Top 6 best-sellers go against the market and post solid gains: add the Peugeot 308 (+7%) and Dacia Sandero (+17%), and there are only 3 declining nameplates in the Top 16: the Renault Megane (-25%), Captur (-21%) and Peugeot 2008 (-7%). The Citroen C3 Aircross soars 101% to secure its 4th ever Top 10 finish at home at #9 after last January (#10), July (#9) and September (#10) and the Renault Twingo (+30%) continues to take full advantage of ongoing scrappage schemes. At #11 overall the Toyota Yaris (+26%) confirms it is the new favourite foreigner in France – albeit produced locally – distancing the Ford Fiesta (+61%) at #14, Opel Corsa (+39%) at #16, VW Polo (-13%) at #17, Fiat 500 (-4%) at #18 and VW Golf (-43%) struggling mightily at #22.

The Citroen C5 Aircross appears inside its home Top 150 this month.

Other great performers inside the Top 50 include the DS 7 Crossback (+581%), Renault Zoe (+125%), Fiat Panda (+80%), Toyota C-HR (+70%), Peugeot 508 (+56%) up 87 spots on September to #44 thanks to the new generation, Opel Crossland X (+51%), Ford Focus (+50%), Citroen C4 Cactus (+49%), Ford Ecosport (+44%), Citroen C1 (+38%), Dacia Duster (+36%) and Mercedes A-Class (+35%). The Citroen C4 Spacetourer (#19), VW T-Roc (#29), BMW X2 (#67), Volvo XC40 (#75) and Peugeot Rifter (#90) top all recent launches (<12 months) while we welcome the Citroen C5 Aircross at #144. Among private sales, no less than 7 of the 8 best-sellers post at least a double-digit gain, with the Dacia Sandero (+20.1%) reclaiming the top spot to holds YTD off the Peugeot 208 (+13.3%) ahead of the Renault Clio (+10.2%) and Citroen C3 (+29.7%). The Citroen C3 Aircross (+208.8%) hits its highest private ranking so far at #6 (previous best #7 last August) just as the Renault Twingo (+61.8%) and Dacia Duster (+40%) take off.

Volkswagen (-25%) rallies back up two spots on September to #2 overall, managing to remain in the YTD lead at 13.6%, holding off the Renault assault with the French manufacturer gaining 21% in October to end the race only 111 sales behind Volkswagen in the YTD order.

Consult 8 years worth of Jordanian Historical Data here

New car sales in Jordan dive by a ghastly 40.4% year-on-year over the first 10 months of 2018 to just 23.855 registrations,  down 39.2% when comparing apples with apples and removing Audi, BMW, Porsche and Volkswagen from 2017 figures as these manufacturers have failed to report sales for 2018. Toyota (-25%) resists much better than the market to overtake both Hyundai (-50%) and Kia (-50%) to snap the brands pole position with 25.5% share. Nissan (+14%) is the only Top 13 manufacturer to manage a year-on-year gain to climb onto the last step of the podium at 7.8% share, distancing Mitsubishi (-60%), Isuzu (-18%), Lexus (-48%) and Land Rover (-27%). Honda (-3%), Ford (-6%), Suzuki (-18%) also resist well but it’s Renault (+52%) that impresses the most among large carmakers, with Volvo (+63%), Jeep (+43%) and Citroen (+12%) among the other great performers. Model-wise, the Toyota Land Cruiser (-32%) snaps the lead away from the Kia Frontier (-56%) while the Hyundai Tucson (+15%) and Toyota Hilux (+106%) manage to gain ground year-on-year to lift up 4 and 11 spots respectively to #3 and #4, distancing the Hyundai Elantra (-61%) and Sonata (-63%) both in freefall. Notice also the Nissan Patrol (+50%) and Isuzu TF (+17%) climbing up the ranking as well. The Ford Ecosport (#74) and Suzuki Baleno (#76) are the best-selling recent launches for the year (<12 months).

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.

Hyundai (-22%) is up one spot to #3 despite a painful fall while Dacia soars 86% year-on-year to climb onto the October podium.
