Who else would take a pic of himself with a Toyota Avanza, right?

Hi and welcome to BestSellingCarsBlog!

I’m Matt, originally from France and now living in Sydney, Australia. Yep this is good old me above, posing next to a new generation Toyota Avanza at Denpasar International Airport, Bali Indonesia in May 2012…

Following car sales figures around the world has been a bit of a hobby for me since my childhood, and I thought instead of keeping it to myself I should share it on a blog, so here it is! I hope you’ll enjoy it, feel free to leave comments if you have info to add or if you think of anything I could do better.

BestSellingCarsBlog now covers all countries in the world with more than 1 million inhabitants, this equals to 177 countries and territories, all listed on the right hand side of the page, so your country must be there! If it is not, it is because there is less than a million people living there, but if you do have detailed data for any other country that doesn’t feature on the blog please do let me know by commenting here! You will see a few countries are listed that have less than 1m population (Iceland, Bhutan, Luxembourg, Monaco), this is because I was able to get official data, and this takes priority over the population size.

There are now 107 countries and territories with official data thanks to many of you sharing information with me. But there are still 64 unloved countries on this blog for which I haven’t managed to get my hands on any official car sales data yet. What I have done for these is watch hundreds of hours of recent YouTube videos of their streets, and based on the cars I could see I have ventured an estimation of the best-selling models. Far from perfect, which is why I need official data!

So this is where I need your help dear readers! You will find below the full list of countries still missing official data. If you have any info about any of them, simply comment on this page or fill in the ‘Contact Us’ form by clicking on the tab on the top left side of your screen. Anything at all will help and I thank you in advance for any data you may be able to share to make this site even better!

Enjoy!

    4.971 new cars foynd a buyer in Greece last October. Almost half are fleet sales. YTD sales 48.984 (- 3.2% on 2012). So seems that this year will end up to 56.000-57.000 new cars. Toyota came first in October with 660 cars.

    Exclusive. Greece July 2013.
    Total sales 6.452 cars, 53.8% were fleet sales.
    Toyota came 1st with 660 sales, Hyundai 2nd with 625 sales & VW 3rd with 606 cars.
    7month (Jan-July ’13) total sales : 36.826 (3.6% down on same period 2012)
    Toyota is No1 YTD but VW is now very close in 2nd place, with just 123 cars behind (3.980 .vs. 3.857). VW presses hard because of the new Golf which came strong, something not happened yet with the new Auris. Yaris mainly keeps the game for Toyota and i’m quite sure it’s going to be 2013s best seller for Greece.

    Good morning! I sent an email which contains car model sales (in an excel file) for the Philippines for January and February 2013. I also sent a correction link that June 2013 brand sales would be replaced in the June 2013 Philippines article, as the figures are for January.

    Hope to hear your response, thank you and have a good day!

    Hi Matt.
    Greece April 1st half report.
    Total sales 2.055, +30.9% on April’s 2012 same period [1570 cars].
    This is because of the fleet sales and especially rent-a-car companies due to the summer season. Fleet sales is almost 54% of the total sales, private sales remains under 1.000 units.
    Hyundai comes first with 400 cars (+447.9% year on year !!!), with Toyota 2nd with 296 cars. This means that Hyundai may be No1 for the whole month. No stats yet but i assume that most of them are i20′s for rent-a-car companies.
    Volkswagen in 3rd place with 251 cars, Opel No4 (167 cars) & Skoda 5th (118 cars).
    That’s all for now.
    Regards.

    Hi Matt,

    I know you do car sales figures but do you know where I can find out roughly what the cost of a new small car would have been in the UK back in 1996? Astra or similar. Can’t find that info anywhere on the web!
    Many thanks,

    Just saw this news.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/breaking/chi-ford-says-focus-tops-world-car-sales-in-2012-20130409,0,6029692.story

    Don’t know why there should be different Sales volumes of FORD FOCUS being mentioned by Ford Guys themselves (1,020,410) whereas your blog counts it to (1,036,683). It looks like there are some sales reversals that happened between month to month.

    with your volume couting it looks like Corolla is a clear winner but ford says it otherwise.

    Hello Matt.
    Greece March 2013 1st half report.
    Total sales : 1.610 cars. This is 2.8% up, compared with same period last year, but….
    650 were fleet sales, which means that, for the first time, private sales goes under 1.000 units and this is something that worries all dealers here.
    1-15 March 2013.
    No1 Toyota -202 sales
    No2 VW – 169
    No3 Skoda – 141
    No4 Hyundai -140

    Opel came 1st this month with 407 sales.

    My science class at North Tahoe High School is working on air pollution in China.
    Do you happen to have any data that shows how many of the new cars and trucks that are sold in China have a catalytic converter? Are there any government rules that mandate that cars have catalytic converters?
    Thanks for your help in this matter.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks a lot for putting this data out on one website. The wealth of information on this blog is incredible and kudos to you for putting together such detailed stuff and moreover making it freely available. I am from India and have access to both cars and two-wheeler data for the Indian market, let me know if I can help you.

    I was looking at the Chinese data and it seems it does not have data for imported vehicles; for BMW it only has 3 series, 5 series and X1 which are produced in China. So wanted to know if you have the details for the imported vehicles only; I was specifically looking for the Range Rover Evoque volumes in China.

    Thanks a ton mate,
    This blog is awesome.

    @matgasnier

    I found data about November of 1987, when just 2480 new cars found a buyer.
    I don’t have any detail stats for 1988 by month with me right now but I don’t think Greek car market was nothing like todays’ misery after 1988 anyway. So we are talking for about 25 years back.

    Bad bad news for Greek car market.

    1)Opel : 157
    2)Volkswagen : 105
    3)Mercedes : 96 (mass registrations of the new A-Class test cars???)
    4)Toyota : 90

    Are there any countries where you’ve been able to find all new cars sold by model (or at least all new cars by manufacturer), rather than just the top 100? Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question!

    Hi, Matt… nice job on compiling all these anecdotal data worldwide. I’m an American living in Ireland and was interested in knowing:
    1. Are your sales data for New Car Sales or New and Used?
    2. I downloaded your Full October 2011 top 50 cars sold in Ireland but am not sure what the two last 2010 columns are meant to tell me.
    Appreciate your time, thank you.

    Dear Matt,
    my mind was blown by the level of detail you’re committed to when it comes to car sales figures. Then I realized you’re not in the UAE, and have done the same for SO MANY other countries! I’m speechless! Thank you!

    If its not too much to ask for, I was hoping you could guide me as to where you get your figures from (United Arab Emirates related only)

    I can only imagine how busy you must be maintaining this site but I would really appreciate a little help.

    with best regards and many thanks,

      Dear Shant,
      Thank you so much for all your praise, it is really heartwarming and I appreciate it very much.
      For the United Arab Emirates I get my data directly from manufacturers through an intermediary as this data does not get published anywhere online (as I guess you would have noticed).
      Hope this helps

    Shalom Matt,
    I live in Israel. I have a 2003 Honda Civic with which I’m perfectly happy, but it’s a five seater and I need a 7 seater, even a very small 7 seater, for my child-care business. So, how much do you think I can sell my Honda Civic for (174,000 kl), fair to good condition and what do you suggest I get for the same (or a little more or less) money in a 7 seater? I don’t want a gas guzzler. I tried to find a Honda Stream for sale, but no luck.

    • matgasnier

      Hey Shoshana,
      I’d say the closest thing would be the Honda Odyssey but it doesn’t seem to be on sale in Israel? Or a Honda CR-V if you want to stay with Honda…

    and secondly, I have recently started a “news” section on my site and am always on the look out for stuff to put on there (that’s how I found this). Would it be OK for me to use some of your stuff?

    Hello,

    I was just going through few sites and blogs yesterday and came across
    your site http://bestsellingcarsblog.com/ too. I really liked the way you
    have presented your site. I was reading some of your content and
    really found them interesting and informative. So I was just wondering
    if I can also do something for your site.

    Actually I am a freelance content writer and I love writing articles
    as a hobby on topics related to Auto loans and Automobiles.

    What if I provide you with an unique article as a Guest Post. An
    article that will be informative for your readers. The article will be
    related to your website and will be appreciated by your readers.

    It would be great if you can add a small BIO of mine at the end of the
    article with my related site’s links. I guarantee you that the article

    Hi Matt,

    your blog is really wonderful. What’s unbelievable is the quality of the pictures and the data details. I hope to be achieve your quality in my site soon or later.

    I just started up a site aiming to create a Global Automotive Pathfinder. While you focused on best selling models, I focus on macro-economic trends related to vehicles sales. My data regards brands performance. Hope we can do something together and you would like to give me some suggestions. Give a look!

    Ciao from “old Europe”

      Hi Carlo,
      Thanks very much for your message and praise, and congratulations for your site!
      I have checked a few of your articles on different countries and noticed that for most of them you are using my models rankings tables in the monthly updates. It’s great that you focus on macro-economic and brand performance but when you use my tables which are copyright Best Selling Cars Blog I need you to display a link to the corresponding page of my site. Could you please do that for me?
      Cheers and good luck!

    Hi Matt !!! I’m from Spain and enjoy your hard working blog. One thing, checking your Saudi Arabia March sales and about is top 150 best sellers only the first three appear. If you can fix it would be great as is almost impossible to know anything about that country and the others in the GCC and is really interesting. Thanks also to Ldman who provides you the data. Overall Matt very good work and for those like me that like statistics we are having a good time. ¡¡ Hasta la vista !!

    Netherlands, March 2012:
    #7 Volkswagen up!
    #18 Mazda CX-5
    #36 Opel Ampera

    All best of the world performances?
    Opel was #1 in March, Kia have been doing incredible the last years and ended the month of March at #5! On the other hand, Infiniti sold nothing and Fiat, Dacia, Seat and Skoda all had a terrible month.
    Fisker sold 26 units of the Karma in March, only the BMW 7 Series and Porsche Panamera were selling better in its segment.

      Hey Tuga,
      Thanks so much for this! I will update my world post shortly…
      All figures are slightly higher than the ones I had so it makes total sense given I didn’t have all countries before…
      Except for the Passat/Santana. Even if we remove the 203,989 Santanas/Santana Vistas sold in China we come to 944,636. I still can’t get my head around how they came to that figure as I have just under 630,000 sales in my calculations. Any ideas?

    just read the oman article. remarkable stuff….!!
    just wondering though – word in the market is that the toyota dealer (saud bahwan) in Oman re-exports close to 70% of its vehicles! could that be the reason they dominate the top 10??
    i tried a bit of primary research myself (with salesmen, when i go to test dirve their new models). they seem to concur (about the re-export theory)….
    who/what is the source you refer to at end? (Ldman)

    Hi matt
    Great website i must say :)

    Im student leaning marketing and im working on a small project fro school and its about the car industry in Brazil or Argentina but its little bit hard to find numbers for the last 3 to 5 years in those 2 markets. I would like to ask you if its possible that you could help with that. Im looking to see how many cars (new cars not used one) have been sold in those 2 country’s in each year and the growth but i can also just calculate that. :)
    If you could do this i would i would be forever thankful

    Hi Matt,

    Great site- I’m wondering where you get your US official data from-do you compile it yourself via manufacturers?

    Gracias!

      Hi Alex,
      Thanks for your praise!
      The Top 30 I get from a couple of American sites (see the source at the bottom of the big table) the rest i go to each manufacturer’s website and they report monthly sales by model so I compile it from that info. January 2012 is overdue though, I will do it in the next couple of days…
      Hope this helps
      cheers

    Passenger car sales for Portugal in January are out, and as expected, they’re not great: http://www.autoinforma.pt/index.php?MIT=0&template_id=1067&xpto=1&a=&a=,,,,,,,36459,,,,,,,,,,,
    The market is down 47,4%, VW is up to number one again, followed by Peugeot, Renault drop to 3rd, and then come BMW in 4th and Audi in 5th… weird. Just weird.

    @Tuga

    Thanks Tuga for your electric car data from Portugal and many thanks to you Matt for keeping this exellent blog. Renault has started recently Fluence ZE , Kangoo ZE and Twizzy sales France, Israel, Denmark, Holland, Spain, Portugal and a few other countries. I’m very keen to follow up electric car sales development in these countries. So if there is a possibility for you to separate in your figures the ZE (zero emission) version from combustion engine versions it would be fine.

    Hi Matt,

    I found your blog when searching for automotive-related blogs for future campaigns.
    We are a company with clients wanting to reach an audience interested in automotive tips and products – we think your blog would suit this topic. Would you be interested in a long term sponsor relationship with us?

    With several years of experience of working with large brands in this segment, we have helped them communicate in the blogosphere (check this link for details on some of our previous partnerships: http://www.emerse.com/our-clients). Many times we help these brands reach out with their charity initiatives or new product launches.

    We are now interested in longer relationships with a smaller number of well-known and respected blogs and sites. It would be great to have your site in this line-up.

    More information about us is found on our website, listed below. Please let me know if you are interested and I can explain in more detail.

    Kind regards,
    Ida Håkansdotter

    Hi, I saw you had written in the Czech data on TTAC that the Ford Focus is a German car. I understand it was engineered there but Ford is an American company. I know Ford is trying to be more Germanic (like Opel too) to capitalize on Europe’s largest market but it isn`t German. Nor is it British, who have an equally founded claim to Ford since Ford has been in the UK around as long as it has in Germany and Ford is the largest seller in the UK. You correctly call Hyundai Korean even though they make cars in Europe (just like Ford).

    • matgasnier
      January 24th, 2012 at 10:06 | #184

      Hi Paul,
      We could debate for ages on this :-)
      Fact is, Ford is considered German in continental Europe (eg the Ford Focus is not the best-selling imported car in Germany) and considered British in the UK (where it has placed a model in pole position for the last 40 consecutive years). It may sound absurd from an American point of view but it’s an everyday fact.
      Another way to look at it is to think about Ford Germany and Ford UK as subsidies of Ford US, as if they were different brands, just that they are called Ford everywhere in the world.
      General Motors calls its Chevrolets Opel in Europe (and Opel is a German brand), Vauxhall in the UK (and Vauxhall is a UK brand) and Holden in Australia (and Holden is an Australian brand). A German consumer is buying a German car when he/she buys an Opel the same way an Australian consumer is buying an Australian car when he/she buys a Holden. Even though at the end of the day it all goes back to General Motors in the US.
      So I stand by what I said for the Czech Republic market having its 2 best-selling foreign models coming from Germany.
      But thanks for debating!
      cheers
      Matt

    Salut Matt,
    Pardon j’ai oublié un autre magazine l’argus de 1988, j’ai également les chiffres de 1986 et 87.
    Il me manque ceux de 1988, 1989 et avant 1983. Mais il me manque également les chiffres “complets” de 92 à 2003…

    January 17th, 2012 at 01:28 | #192

    Hi Matt,
    Juste un petit mot pour t’informer que je viens de recevoir 3 magazines dont 2 l’argus 1986 et 92 et l’A-M hors série toutes les voitures du monde 89/90.

    J’attends de me recevoir un autre colis d’autre vendeur: lots de 7 magazines hors série des années 60/70/80, je ne sais pas si il y a aussi les chiffres complets dans les années 60/70, je verrai bien!

    Je continue de faire mes autres recherches des anciens magazines (l’argus, etc)…

    Pour l’instant j’ai les chiffres à t’envoyer par mail dans quelques mois:
    1984 (complets de l’argus)
    1985 (complets de l’argus)
    1988 (pas complets de l’automobile magazine hors série et j’ai également les chiffres par modèle pour l’europe mais je ne sais pas si tu les as déjà).

    1990 et 1991 de l’argus, tu as déjà les chiffres de 1991 mais il y a quelques erreurs et oublis et il manque les chiffres complets de l’année1990.

    Voilà
    Bon courage l’ami.

    December and YTD sales by brand are out for Portugal, and as expected, they are not good http://www.autoinforma.pt/index.php?MIT=0&template_id=929&xpto=1&a=&a=0,36458,,,,

    The market was down 60% in December and 31% YTD, at 153,433 cars. And next year is expected to be even worst, with the brightest predictions pointing to sales of around 130k cars…

    Renault kept their lead, followed by VW, Peugeot, Opel and Ford, same as last year.

    Hi Matt. According to Drive Magazine (no longer in print) Dec 1998 The top 10 sales for South Africa in Oct 1998 was:

    Toyota Corolla 1493
    Toyota Conquest 1466
    VW Citi Golf 1270
    VW Polo Classic 952
    BMW 3 series 924
    Mazda Midge/Ford Tracer 858
    Nissan Sentra/Sabre 803
    Opel Astra/Kadett 782
    Opel Corsa 775
    VW Jetta/Golf 718

    I do have a few old magazines gathering dust (Car, TopCar, Drive and Wiel) and if needed I can send you info from them. It seems that Naamsa did not supply info for a period before 1992 and therefore info from that time should be rather hard to find.

    matgasnier : JATO says 14,168 but it doesn’t seem right as the market share are very low with that figure?ThanksMatt

    No idea where they got those figures. According to the sources i have ( Guia do Automovel and this: http://www.acap.pt/suporte/documentos/%7B1835677173-20111202-181259%7D_11_-_VENDAS_PROVISORIAS_NOVEMBRO11.xls ) there were 9,519 passenger cars sold in Portugal in November ( – 48,8% ). Even when adding LCVs to that, the overall number i have is 12,511 ( -44,8% ). So… yeah, not sure where they got their numbers.

    Thanks for your answer Matt.

    But I would like then in which countries you include LCV numbers and which do you separate them from passenger cars. I’ve seen for example some information about Netherlands, Spain and France in which in separate posts, you update passenger and LCV sales data. I am just making a Fiat-Chrysler Group analysis that if you want I can share with you after december sales information.

  159. Juan Felipe
    December 24th, 2011 at 07:56 | #222

    Matt,
    I would like to know if in the numbers of Fiat models you include LCV numbers. I mean, for example in the case of the Fiat Doblo or Scurdo, Fiorino, Qubo, Panda or Punto Van, when you say that 5000 Doblos were sold in Italy during november, do you include in that number the LCV version?

    Merry Christmas!

    • matgasnier
      December 24th, 2011 at 11:34 | #223

      Hi Juan Felipe,
      Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you to!
      To answer your question, LCV numbers are not included in the Italy sales figures, otherwise the models you mention would rank much higher. In some countries like Australia and South Africa, they are included though.
      Hope this helps
      cheers

    Thanks Matt for the Feedback, and of coarse for the wonderful information you share about all these vehicle types around the world.

    I ask all the other readers on this Blog to take a look at http://www.isaza.co.za at a product called the EZDown click on the picture to run the video, up and till now the product was only available in the USA for US pickups! I have now developed the EZDown for the pickups sold in Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. Namely the Toyota Hilux, Isuzu D-max, Ford Ranger, Mazda BT-50 and the VW Amarok.

    I am trying to find in roads for sales agents for this product in these areas. If anyone reading this can nominate some suiteable companies, please send me a mail on garth@isaza.co.za

    Thanks again Matt for this platform.

    Hello Matt
    Thank you for posting the update of Norwegian car sales so promptly. Being French i suppose you remember the Renault 14 quite well (depending on your age). At he moment I am fascinated by that car. Do you know where I could find statistics relating to how many are on French roads? I found out that here in the UK there are only 23 left.

    Oh, and regarding your post on Portuguese sales Jan/Aug11, i wouldn’t commit myself to any solid standings below the top10 sellers. There are a couple of big names missing there ( C4, Qashqai, Yaris, Auris ), and they may just have had a bad month.

    Question. I heard on the news this week that Greeks buy more Porsche Cayennes than any other nation. Can you direct me to statistics of Cayennes sold around the world? Thanks and cheers!

    • matgasnier
      September 30th, 2011 at 22:38 | #267

      Hi Tamerlane,
      I’m not sure what you heard is based on because the Porsche Cayenne is not stronger in Greece, it is actually much weaker there than in many European countries. It sold just 3 units in August (0.04% market share) and 15 over the first 8 months of the year (0.02% share) in Greece. In comparison the Cayenne was 115th last month in Germany with 0.2% market share and 57th in Latvia over the first 7 months of the year with 0.5% share, Latvia being I believe one of its best counties in the world. Ex-USSR states including Russia are avid buyers of the Cayenne.
      Hope this helps
      cheers

    Matt;
    I am inquiring to know if you can possibly help me out with some data for a research project I’m working on, or lead me in the right direction to find the data.

    I am researching data for:
    Total production statistics (US & Europe) of the Mercedes Benz ML320 and ML350 SUV (Model Year 1998-2005)

    I am also researching statistics regarding sales for US, Europe and Asia by country, of the same Mercedes model and year, if the statistics are available.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Matt,

    I’ve found an Estonian web-site with the lists of the registered cars in that country with the numbers further divided among the top car brands in their vehicle park for the years 1926, 1930, 1935 and 1940.

    There is a web-page in English which provides links to the web-pages in Estonian.

    http://www.eag.unicweb.ee/english.html

    http://www.eag.unicweb.ee/ew1940.html

    If you can’t deduce the meaning of the words in Estonian, ask me and I can help. E.g. veoautot=trucks, sõiduautot=(passenger) cars, etc.

    Small correction of the info I gave: 1973 No 1 seller was the Renault 12, not the Renault 5.
    “En 1972, la Simca 1100 est alors la voiture la plus vendue en France, prenant la succession de la Peugeot 204 avant d’être battue l’année suivante par la Renault 12.”

    Love your blog, very interesting. Found it on TTAC. Do you have any sales data on the best selling cars in the individual states in the US? It would be interesting to know what sells in say the state of California as opposed to the state of New York. Any info like this would be appreciated. Thanks for your great work!

    • April 20th, 2011 at 18:38 | #340

      Hey Fred
      Thanks for your praise! Glad to hear you are enjoying the blog.
      Unfortunately as far as I know manufacturers do not publish state specific figures, they only flag when a particular model fares much better in a specific state, as it is the case for the Ford Fiesta in California currently… I will keep looking and definitely post if I find anything.

    I love your website. I bet you get a ton of hits. I wouldn’t mind some ads on the site, and maybe others wouldn’t either… and if you added the ads then you could maybe make a little money from your hobby… just a thought.

    Thanks for the awesome site.

    • March 22nd, 2011 at 11:35 | #352

      Hey Eric,
      Thanks very much!! Glad you’re enjoying the site. Yes the hits are growing steadily which is very exciting!
      Are you talking about ads from an advertiser point of view or a consumer point of view?
      Because yes indeed the next significant change on the layout of this site will probably be to include (discreet) ads… so any more thoughts you have on this is very welcome.
      Thanks again, do feel free to come to me with any other suggestions/questions!

        Hi Matt,

        You’re welcome.

        You asked which point of view I’m coming from: I’m not telling you to put ads from an advertiser or a consumer point of view. I’m trying to tell you to put ads from your point of view, which is the content provider. It’s your hobby, but it’s helping many people: why not make a little money from it? I am a consumer of your site, and I think little Google written ads somewhere and perhaps a context-based square image or Flash ad would be good. I’m guessing they would be car ads since your site relates to cars. I like car ads for the most part…. they keep me up to date on the newest cars. But I’m not an expert on placing advertising on a site, and definitely not a WordPress site, so you may want to search on WordPress for ad help.

        Thanks.

      I noticed the Google ad on one of your pages. It looks decent. It might seem slightly weird because the font seems big, but maybe that’s how it should be. At this point I don’t think it should be too hard to use AdSense to put a Picture Square ad right under your “Email Subscription” to the right and above your “Categories” section. Just another thought. I bet that it will end up being a car ad, which would be cool. In different countries different ads should pop up though.

      Hello vaasii,

      Thanks very much for your comment.
      You can find Costa Rican sales here: http://bestsellingcarsblog.com/category/costa-rica/
      As for Puerto Rico, it is not an independent state but part of the United States of America, and therefore sales in Puerto Rico are incorporated in the USA sales.
      Hope this helps.

      Hi Evan,
      Thanks!
      Glad you’re enjoying the site.
      A couple of sources for Colombia data: es.autoblog.com frequently post car brand rankings in Colombia, model rankings are much rarer, posted around twice a year. automotriz (.net) posts monthly general updates for Colombia, the model ranking also appears sometimes, but very rarely not a regular intervals.
      I don’t actually have a source that provides the models rankings monthly at this stage. Perhaps you have more regular info about the Colombian models ranking?

    Matt,

    Here is a website for Venezuela sales:

    http://www.cavenez.com/

    Mexican sales:

    http://www.amda.org.mx/

    This Argentine blog posts Argentina sales each month. They usually post the top 50 a day or two after the month ends, but then they update it a couple days later for all sales:

    http://autoblog.com.ar/

    BTW, I add up all sales of the top automakers worldwide for another site. Please send me an e-mail.

    • December 4th, 2010 at 17:55 | #370

      Thank you very much ausrutherford for these links!
      I have mentioned you in my argentinian and mexican articles.
      One question: the VW Jetta has improved significantly over the past couple of months in Mexico, to the point of threatening the reign of the Tsuru. Does anyone know whether the figures include the new generation Jetta that just launched (and so in actual fact the figures are the addition of the Jetta Clasico and the Jetta) ? I have assumed so but wouldn’t mind getting this confirmed?
      Thanks!
      Matt

      • December 5th, 2010 at 15:10 | #371

        I believe it includes both. This is because before the new Jetta went on sale, there was a “Jetta” on the sales chart, so i am pretty sure it does.

        Was wondering if you had the link to the Turkey site that you have used in the past. I would like to have it.

        Also, reguarding Norway november sales. Did you report the top15 because thats all the site provided, or do they have more and you decided not to post more? Reason is, I add up the sales of all models worldwide for the biggest of all the car companies.

        Also, forgot to provide this in my last post. These two sites offer sales in Taiwan. Noticed the site you used only did locally built:

        http://www.autonet.com.tw/cgi-bin/view.cgi?/a1+a2+a3+a4+a5+b1+/report/201011+/report/r2+b3+d6+c1+c2+c3+e1+e2+e3+e5+f1

        This second one updates itself when a new month is reported:

        http://tw.autos.yahoo.com/monthly_topsale.html

        BTW, if you wanted to see Ford’s worldwide sales for October, here they are:

        http://www.fordinsidenews.com/forums/showthread.php?6776-Ford-s-October-2010-Worldwide-Sales-Breakdown&p=38890#post38890

      • December 5th, 2010 at 18:00 | #372

        Hi Ausrutherford,

        Thanks very much for all the info!
        I was just wondering whether the growth of the Jetta’s numbers was only due to promotions on the old model (now Jetta Clasico) rather than the addition of the sales of the New Jetta, which may be counted separately. I guess there is no sure way to know that…

        Ok so for the Turkey sales I use http://www.e-otodergi.com/index.asp each 5 or 6th of the month they upload a new online magazine so you have to download it and flick through the pages. There are monthly Top 10 for each category, but the ranking is for the month before last eg for teh December issue that will appear tomorrow it is the October sales, not November.

        Regarding Norway, I use http://www.ofvas.no and they only publish the Top 20 Year-to-date each month, giving the monthly sales only for the Top 20 year-to-date models. This way you can have models outside of the yearly Top 20 actually ranking within the monthly Top 20 but there is no way to know about them. So to be safe I only publish the Top 15 for the month. The rest of the ranking is: Peugeot 3008 (165), VW Tiguan (162), Volvo V50 (147), Toyota Prius (105), VW Passat (80). Clearly the last 2 are not within the November Top20.

        Thanks for the Taiwan links and the Ford worldwide sales, I will look at them now!
        cheers
