Liechtenstein 2011: VW Golf #1, Audi Q5 and Porsche impress

VW Golf

* See the Top 100 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Many thanks to René *

After Andorra yesterday, thanks to René Heeres I am able to add an even tinier European nation to the list of countries Best Selling Cars Blog covers: Lichtenstein, also a principality, has just 35,000 inhabitants, covers 160 square kilometres and is located between Austria and Switzerland. And the new car market is in great shape in Lichtenstein in 2011, up 14% year-on-year to 2,029 registrations. Like in its neighbouring countries Volkswagen dominates sales, so much so that it monopolises the podium in 2011, placing the VW Golf at #1 with 83 sales and 4.1%, followed by the Polo at 77 units and 3.8% and the Passat with 53 sales and 2.6%.

Audi Q5

The VAG group grabs 4 more spots within the Top 10: the Audi A4 ranks #4, the Skoda Octavia is #5, the Audi Q5 is at #7 with 1.5% share, most probably its best year-end ranking anywhere in the world, and the VW Transporter is #9. BMW places the 5 Series in 6th place and the Mini at #8 and the Ford Fiesta rounds up the Top 10. Notice also the Ford Kuga at #11, the BMW X3 at #13, BMW X1 at #15 and Honda Jazz at #19.

Porsche Cayenne

Another very successful brand in Lichtenstein is Porsche... The Porsche Cayenne is up to an extremely impressive 25th spot with 21 sales and 1% share, the Porsche 911 ranks #41 with 15 units and 0.7% share and the Panamera is #82 with 8 sales. Plus the Range Rover ranks at a very respectable #35.

    It’s great to see sales for smaller countries, very interesting, it is a shame that sales figures for Belgium are not readily available. Thank you.
