New car sales in Denmark are back in positive, just: the market is up 1% year-on-year in May to 16,683 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 69,548 units, down 2% on 2011. Total reshuffle atop the models ranking: if the Toyota Aygo is #1 for the second month in a row with an excellent 765 sales and 4.6% and now up to #2 year-to-date like in 2011, the Kia Picanto, #2 this month at 735 units and 4.4%, manages to snap up the pole position in the 2012 year-to-date ranking with 2,504 sales and 3.6%, 45 units above the Aygo and 151 ahead of the Peugeot 107…
The Chevrolet Spark, still relatively weak in May at #11, loses the pole position it held over the Full Year 2011 and this year until last month, now relegated to 4th place overall. The VW Up! confirms it is a serious candidate for the title of best-selling model in Denmark by the end of 2012: it stays on the podium for the third consecutive month at #3 with 705 sales and 4.2% and is now #5 year-to-date, by far VW’s best-seller in the country.
The other great performer in the Top 10 is without a doubt the Peugeot 208, up to a brilliant 6th position for its first true month of sales in the country with 487 sales and 2.9% share. This makes Denmark the third best country for the 208 so far after the 4th spot it reached in Portugal last month and its 5th place in France in May.
