NEW UPDATE: Thanks to Andrea, I can now share with you the Top 150 best-sellers over the first 9 months of 1974, the Top 140 for the first 3 months of 1975 and first 6 months of 1976, which were three years for which I had no sales data beforehand.
UPDATE: Thanks to Marc, instead of a Top 10 there is now a Top 50 models for 1997 and 1999 and a Top 100 for 1998, 2000 and 2001. Did you know the Lancia Lybra ranked #18 in 2000, the first generation Fiat Palio was #20 in 2000 or the Fiat Multipla #20 in 2001?
Thanks to Andrea, Max, Miguel and STAC I am now able to share with you detailed Historical Data for Italy for the last 56 years. For most years a models ranking is available, making Italy one of the most complete countries on BSCB. The Fiat 600 was king from 1956 to 1963 before the Fiat 500 took the relay from 1964 to 1971…
…the Fiat 128 had its turn for two short years in 1972 and 1973, then the Fiat 127 led the market from 1974 to 1982. Witness also the solid careers of the small Fiat 850 and 126 or the larger 1500, 124 and 131, the success of the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfasud, and the Autobianchi Bianchina and Primula…
Discover also the strength of the Fiat Ritmo at over 200,000 annual sales for two years (1981–1982), the thundering arrival of the Fiat Uno in 1983 and its 1986 peak of 433,700 sales and 23.8% market share! See the consistency of the Fiat Panda, peaking at 11% share in 1982 and 223,410 sales in 1989…
…and the instant success of the 1988 Fiat Tipo, reaching almost 14% share in December that year! Experience the exotic arrival on the podium of – shock, horror! – foreign models: the Renault 5 in 1985 and the VW Golf in 1986…
The Fiat Punto took the lead in November 1993 at launch. Starting just under 20% share, four generations of the model, including the Grande Punto from 2005 onwards, helped keep the Punto nameplate on top of Italian sales for 18 consecutive years!
However the Fiat Panda 2, launched in 2003, has been gearing up all through its career to reach 8% share in 2009, and the Panda 3, unveiled in 2011, takes the title of best-selling model in Italy in 2012 for the first time in the nameplate’s 32 year career, reiterating this feat in 2013 and 2014.
