Excellent start of the year for Moroccan car sales, up 19% year-on-year in January to 9,752 registrations. Having reclaimed the overall pole position towards the end of last year, the Renault Kangoo stays ahead this month with 1,024 sales and 10.5% share, however a new piece of information is that the version of the Kangoo that leads the ranking in Morocco is actually the previous, 2006 generation and not the current one called ‘Evolution’ and that sold 107 units in the country in January.
No less than 3 Dacias (the brand’s entire range) follow in the ranking: the Logan, #1 up until 2011, ranks 2nd at 831 units and 8.5%, the Sandero is third with 593 sales and 6.1% and the Duster is 4th at 474 sales and 4.9%… A great performance for the Romanian brand, keeping in mind that like the Kangoo, both the Logan and Sandero are assembled locally, and the Duster is the best-selling imported model in the country.
