Many thanks to Ldman for making this post possible!

The Egyptian car market is slowly returning to normal after last February's events, but July sales are still down 21% year-on-year at 17,688 units. The year-to-date total stands at 94,712 registrations, 34% below 2010.

While the Hyundai Verna keeps its title of best-selling car in Egypt with 2,952 sales and 8.4% share, the new generation Hyundai Elantra delivers very impressive numbers for its first two months in market: it ranks directly #2 over June/July at 2,589 units and 7.4% share! The Chevrolet Lanos is in shape and takes the 3rd spot over the period at 6.2% share.

JMC Pickup

The Chevrolet TFR pick-up (aka Isuzu D-Max) is down to #4 over the period at 6.1% but stays 2nd year-to-date at 7,690 units and 8.1%. Excellent score of the Chevrolet Aveo, up to 5th place with 1,597 sales (4.6%) just above the new generation Hyundai Accent, #6 with 1,593 sales and 4.5%.

Other good performers in Egypt over the period include the Speranza A516 up to #12, the Hyundai Matrix up to #20, the Mitsubishi Lancer up to #22 and the JMC Pickup launched earlier this year and landing directly at #23 with 322 sales and 0.9% share.

      Hi Austin,
      Outside the Top 50 my figures are unreliable because based on month by month differences of year-to-date market shares, so I wouldn’t be confident sharing them with you, hope you understand….
      cheers

      Hi Miguel,
      The Skoda Octavia current generation is called Fantasia in Egypt to differentiate it from the previous generation Octavia still on sale in the country.
      cheers
