Yep, today is the day I am adding a few official sales to countries that never had any on this site before... Pretty exciting! Lebanon is the next cab off the rank and thank to Ldman again I am able to share with you that 3,954 new vehicles found a new buyer in Lebanon in March and 9,368 over the first 3 months of 2012.
The Nissan Sunny, in fact a rebadged previous generation Samsung SM3, is the best-selling model in the country both in March with 589 sales and an exceptional 14.9% market share and year-to-date at 932 units and 9.9%. Two Kias complete the podium in both rankings: the Picanto is #2 with 388 sales and 9.8% and the Rio is #3 at 385 units and 9.7%.
Like in neighbouring Jordan, the Koreans are present in force in Lebanon: the Hyundai i10 is #4 at 7.1% share, followed by the Hyundai Accent at #5 and 6.1%, the Kia Cerato at #6 and 4.3%, the Kia Sportage at #8, Hyundai Elantra at #9, Kia Sorento at #11 and Hyundai Tucson at #14. Other great performers this month in Lebanon include the Nissan Juke at #10, Mitsubishi Lancer at #13, Toyota Avanza at #16, Jeep Grand Cherokee at #21 and Hyundai Veloster at #23.
