    Hi again, I own statistics about commercial vehicles in August in Spain, If you want I share them with you but I don’t know how. Do I post the data here or send to an e-mail?

    @matgasnier

    Hi Matt, you’re right. It’s supposed to be an incorrect definition in the german statistics, they even put the Highline-Amaroks in the LCV-statistics while other countries obviously put it in the passenger cars list (54 units).

    Hi, I think it’s hard to make a statistic like this because some countries like mine (Spain) don’t separate the “street” versions from commercial versions. For instance: Kangoo, Berlingo and Partner are great sellers and many of them are “street” versions but I think all of them only count like commercial.

    It’s a pity not to have homogenic statistics in all countries.

    But thanks for your work, it’s very interesting.

      Hi Miguel,
      Thank you very much for this.
      There are differences between this ranking and the previous one you sent me for 2000. Could you confirm which one is correct please?

    Hi Matt, absolutely fantastic statistics, great job ! Just one correction: 54 VW Amarok can’t be true. In january i emailed the german car statistics office (fahrzeugstatistik@kba.de) to figure out how many Amarok have been registered in germany in 2010 (because it’s not listed among the normal passenger statsitics). I was told, that 1.634 units were sold/registered in 2010 in germany.

      Hi Pedro,
      Thank you very much for your praise, I really appreciate it!
      Remember the stats here are passenger cars – not commercial vehicles.
      So it is possible that 1,634 Amaroks were registered in 2010 in Germany but they would be counted as commercial vehicles. The VW Transporter, Ford Transit and Renault Kangoo would rank much higher in this ranking as well for example if commercial vehicles were counted.
      Have a look at the France page and you will see LCV (light commercial vehicles) monthly rankings as well…
      Hope this helps
      cheers

    It’s very interesting that!
    But they forgot a few other models in some countries (for example the pick-up in France: Toyota Hilux: more than 2500 units, Mitsubishi L200 and Nissan Navarra: about 1,600 units respectively, etc …)

    In Switzerland, there are Toyota Sienna, the Honda Odyssey, US models (4×4, big MPV, etc.), etc. …. :)

    • matgasnier

      Hi STAC,
      All the models you mention are commercial vehicles, not passenger cars so therefore are not counted in this ranking.
      For your Switzerland examples all these models have individual sales so small they are counted as ‘various’.
