The climate is getting worse and worse for Portuguese car sales, down a worrying 49% this month to 9,519 registrations. This brings the year-to-date total to 142,195 units, down 27%. The Top 4 is unchanged compared to October, with the Renault Megane leading the way both this month with 5.1% share and year-to-date at 5.5%. Renault manages a 1-2 again with the Clio at #2 with 4.1% of the market in November, #3 year-to-date at 3.8%.
Follow the VW Golf at 3%, #6 year-to-date at 3.3% and the VW Polo at 2.7%, #5 YTD at 3.4%. It seems like every country I write about sees very strong sales of the VW Passat this month, and Portugal is no different! It gains 8 spots on October to land in 5th place with 241 sales and 2.5%, but is still #15 YTD at 1.7%.
Other great performers this month include the Audi A4 up 14 ranks to claw its way back in the Top 10 at #10 with 2.2% vs. #20 and 1.3% YTD, the Peugeot 308 up 10 spots to #13 and the new generation Toyota Yaris in the Top 20 for the 2nd month in a row at #18. Notice the Seat Ibiza, #2 YTD, down to #15.
