Very quick update on the Greek market midway through November and the situation is getting even worse now. At only 1,020 sales, the new car market in Greece is down 66% year-on-year. The 2012 year-to-date figure now stands at 51,666 units, down 41% on 2011. It is now certain that 2012 will be the first time since 1988 or 24 years that Greek new car sales fall below 60,000 units…
Brand-wise, Toyota leads with 154 sales and 15.5% share (-54%) ahead of Volkswagen at 137 units and 13.4% (-70%) and Opel with 84 sales and 8.2% (-81%). 3 mainstream brands manage to progress year-on-year: Peugeot up 27% to #5, Citroen up 29% to #6 and Mercedes up 20% to #9, with Abarth and Land Rover both up 100% to just 2 units… The hardest hit brands are Subaru, Mazda, Lexus, Jeep and Porsche (all at -100%), Honda (-96%), SsangYong (-92%), Mitsubishi & Daihatsu (-87%), Hyundai (-85%), Ford & Skoda (-81%) and Seat (-80%).
