* See the sales of Renault models by clicking on the title! *
My traditional source for Algerian sales has dried up and hasn't been updated since January so my coverage of Algeria has become a little patchy. If you have access to regular models figures please make sure to let me know by commenting on this post. What I can share with you is the fantastic results Renault has been lodging each month of 2012. Sales of Renault Group cars (Renault and Dacia) have added up to 7,112 units in January, 8,312 in February, 11,125 in March, 12,052 in April and 12,402 in May, a new record for the Group and a huge 66% improvement on May 2011...
Over the first 5 months of 2012, Renault Group sold 51,003 vehicles, up 38% year-on-year. This is split between 37,052 Renaults (+39%) and 13,951 Dacias (+37%). If we go into the detail of models, the Renault Symbol is still the most popular model in Algeria with 13,817 sales, while the Dacia Logan is on the up in spite of its 8 years of age at 8,973 units or 10,389 if we add the LCV version.
The Renault Clio III is at 5,883 sales which is already 66% of its Full Year 2011 result and we are witnessing a total revival of the Renault Clio Campus (previous generation still available), selling 5,277 units in 5 months compared to 5,008 over the Full Year 2011... Notice also the Dacia Duster at 2,365 sales. In a more general sense, the Algerian car market has been booming in 2012. In April, sales were up a massive 52% to a record 39,639 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 136,414 units, up 43% on the same period in 2011 which was already up 25% on 2010...
