* See the Top 60 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Many thanks to Ldman *
Yemen is the fourth middle-eastern country today after Jordan, Lebanon and Syria to now be graced with official sales data for the very first time on Best Selling Cars Blog thanks to the help of Ldman. It's a very limited market with only 1,454 new vehicles sold over the first 3 months of 2012. Not all manufacturers are represented so the ranking could be incomplete but one thing is certain: Toyota dominates in Yemen.
Like in nearby Qatar and Bahrain, the Toyota Land Cruiser is the best-selling model in the country over the period with a mammoth 23.8% market share thanks to 346 sales. The Toyota Land Cruiser Pick-up comes 2nd with 228 units and 15.7% followed by the Toyota Hilux at 191 sales and 13.1%.
The Hyundai Tucson ranks #4 ahead of the Kia Cerato and Rio while the Range Rover is 7th with 32 sales and 2.2%, potentially its highest ranking in the world!
