13,950 new vehicles found a buyer in Egypt in February and for the first time since last October the Chevrolet TFR pick-up is the best-selling model in the country, by far, with 1,404 sales and 10.1% market share, making it the best-seller in 2012 year-to-date as well at 2,225 units and 8.5%. After a January off at #19 the Hyundai Accent RB is back in great shape and ranks #2 this month with 1,005 sales and 7.2%.
The Hyundai Verna, #1 in January and in Full Year 2011, is down to #3 at 974 units and 7%, followed by the third Hyundai in the Top 4 this month: the new Elantra with 965 sales and 6.9%. Very solid month for the Chevrolet Aveo up to #5 and the Renault Logan up to #6 but not as good as the Skoda Octavia up 7 spots to #8 and up to #10 year-to-date vs. #29 in 2011. The new generation Kia Rio is also ramping up, from #37 in January to #23 now.
There are quite a few new models in the Egyptian ranking this month – and they are all Chinese! The Changhe Freedom manages to rank #28 for its very first month of sales in the country with 73 sales while the Chevrolet N300, originally a Wuling Rongguang, is #30 with 69 units. On sale in the country since 2008 but enjoying a nice revival, the Brilliance FRV is up to #37 with 50 sales. Other newcomers include the JAC A10 at #57 and the JAC J3 at #62.
