Stable market in Malaysia in January up just 0.1% to 44.667 registrations. Perodua remains the clear leader in the brands ranking but drops 9% to 31.8% share vs. 35.7% over the Full Year 2016. Honda on the other hand boasts a 50% improvement to 8.594 sales and 19.2% share vs. 15.8% in 2016, most likely due to the arrival in dealerships of the BR-V crossover. In contrast, Proton continues to struggle at -7% above Toyota up 95%. These four aforementioned manufacturers hold an astounding 80.2% of the Malaysian car market this month, with the remaining 41 sharing just 20% of the market – in other words bread crumbs. Let’s go one step further: if we remove Honda from the market data, Malaysian sales overall are actually down 7% at 36.073 vs. 38.848! Nissan (-57%), Mazda (-41%), Hino (-33%), Mitsubishi (-26%), Ford (-26%), Kia (-19%), Volkswagen (-19%) and Peugeot (-15%)  all struggle, but Lexus (+10%), Subaru (+13%), Porsche (+68%) and Chery (+260%) shine.
