Mauritius Full Year 2011: Chevrolet Cruze best-seller UPDATED

Chevrolet Cruze

* NOW UPDATED with sales for the Top 5 models and Top 10 brands! Click on title to see *

Thanks to Lorenzo I can share with you for the first time on Best Selling Cars Blog an official models ranking for Mauritius. My previous observations through YouTube had made me think that Nissan would place a couple of cars atop the models ranking but it is not the case, with just one Nissan in the Top 5 ranking, a varied mix of economical Korean cars, a stylish Japanese SUV and a luxurious German sedan. Nissan is however still the best-selling brand in Mauritius with 12.6% share ahead of Kia (10.5%) and Hyundai (10.4%).

Mercedes C-Class

The best-selling car in Mauritius in 2011 is the Chevrolet Cruze with 264 sales and 4.8% share, confirming its strength on every corner of the planet, from the USA to China to Australia. The second place is a surprise: the Mercedes C-Class, ranking higher than in its native Germany and just one unit below the Cruze at 263! The nimble Hyundai i10 rounds up the podium with 207 units and 3.8%, a good fit for Mauritian winding roads.

The Nissan Qashqai at 3.5% and Kia Cerato at 3.4% follow. There is no official data for Commercial Vehicles but it seems the Great Wall Wingle is off to a great start in the country. Brand-wise, Chevrolet is the best performer this year up 61% and 4 spots to #4, with Hyundai (+55%) and BMW (+22%) also faring very well. On the contrary, Mitsubishi (-36%) and Honda (-21%) struggle.

    @matgasnier Kia has been in Mauritius since 2003 . At the end of year 2010, a new dealer started selling Kia’s vehicles. That why there is no figure for 2010.

      One more question: is Kia new in Mauritius in 2011 or did they just not publish sales figures before?
      cheers
