Japan by version November 2012: Mazda Atenza lands

Mazda Atenza (aka Mazda6)

* See the Top 100 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Thanks Austin *

As is now the tradition, after exploring the Passenger car Top 30 and the Kei car Top 20 in Japan, we have a more thorough look at overall October sales split by version and with Light Commercial Vehicles added. No surprises on top, the Toyota Aqua leads the way for the 10th consecutive time (no interruption since last February!), almost 10,000 sales above the #2 at 26,346 vs. 16,406 for the Honda NBOX which has now held the #2 spot for 7 of the last 8 months...

Suzuki Every

Excellent performance of the Suzuki Every up 8 spots on October to #4 with 12,541 sales, while the Toyota Prius alpha continues to gain ground vs. the hatchback version: it now represents 46% of all Prius sales in Japan.

Honda N-One

It is already the star of the Kei car market: the Honda N-One manages to find its way onto the overall Top 10 as early as for its first month of sales in the country with 9,674 units at #10.

Nissan Clipper Van

The Nissan Clipper Van is up 27 ranks on last month to #27 with 3,391 sales, and 3 models climb up the ranking thanks to their new generation now available across the country: the Subaru Forester ranks #30 at 3,113 units, the Mazda Atenza (aka 6) lands at #52 with 1,798 sales and the Mitsubishi Outlander is up 6 spots to #67 and 732 units.

    I wonder why Lexus has no data even though they are built in Japan.
    At the same time I noticed that Honda’s home situation is not in their favor in terms of ”normal cars’ sales’. They seems to be doing really well with their ”Kei cars”. No wonder they plan to introduce the modified (bigger) N-series cars to other emerging markets like India and Indonesia to slot below the Brio series. The normal cars that are selling well are Fit, Fit Shuttle, StepWGN and Freed, but that also are in the dwindling trend.
