France 13 to 19 September 2011: Renault places 4 models on top!

Renault Clio

* See the Top 10 best-selling models by clicking on 'Read more' at end of post! *

The French market is down 9% vs. 2010 this week at 33,000 sales. Still boosted by heavy promotions, Renault manages the extraordinary feat (even in France) of placing 4 models atop the ranking! If it has happened before (which I'm not 100% sure) it has to be before the Peugeot 206 launched in 1998 so we're witnessing a 'once in at least a decade' event...

The Clio leads the way by far with 2,979 sales for a whopping 9% market share, nearly doubling the score of the #2, the Megane at 1,535 units and 4.7%. The Scenic takes the 3rd spot with 3.7%, ahead of the Twingo at 3.6%. First non-Renault, the Peugeot 207 is 5th with a weak 3.5%. Notice the VW Polo at #7 and the Dacia Duster still valiant at #9.

    There are always ups and down in the automotive industry since the economy is falling day by day which is not allowing the people to spend the money. That’s might be a reason of low sale.

    I believe Max. I only do not understand why VW is so strong on sales in France! The models are cheap, maybe.

    Of course you’re right, Miguel.

    But usually, Renault is very strong at the end of the month…

    PSA is behind Renault-Dacia !

    The Clio has sold 2.5 times more than the 207!

    Nissan is very strong too, maybe the best ranking for the japanese brand ever !

    It’s very tight with Dacia, Ford, Toyota, Opel and Audi !
