Thai new vehicle sales are up 7.5% year-on-year in July to 65.178 units, lifting the year-to-date total up 10.7% to 475.158 registrations. Toyota goes against the grain with a worrying 18% year-on-year fall to 25.2% share vs. 27.1% year-to-date. Isuzu (+14%) reclaims the 2nd spot off Honda (+15%) at 18.6% share vs. 16.1%. Mitsubishi soars 62% but remains in 4th place, ahead of Nissan (+37%), Ford (+21%), Mazda (+13%), Suzuki (+24%) and Chevrolet (+22%), all comfortably beating the market growth. Mercedes (-10%) is with Toyota the only Top 10 manufacturer to decline. Further down, MG soars 47% at #11, BMW is up 36%, Hyundai up 38%, Kia up 104% and Volkswagen up almost 30-fold (!) whereas Subaru implodes down 70%.

Model-wise, the Isuzu D-Max has now been the best-selling vehicle in the country for six of the seven months of 2017 so far, and gains 13% in July to hop to 15.2% share vs. 13.6% (-6%) for its archenemy the Toyota Hilux. The advantage the D-Max holds over the Hilux year-to-date is now over 13.000 units. As we mentioned last month, this now seems like an unsurmountable advantage and the D-Max is headed towards its very first Thai crown in over a decade in 2017… The Ford Ranger (+33%) is back above the Toyota Yaris (+1%) in third place while the Honda City (+14%) claws back up one spot on June to #5. The Mazda2 (+24%), Honda Jazz (+36%) and Mitsubishi Triton (+53%) all frankly beat the market inside the Top 10 while beyond the Nissan Navar (+22%), Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (+39%), Isuzu MU-X (+41%), Suzuki Ciaz (+88%), Mitsubishi Attrage (+94%) and Honda CR-V (+393%) impress in the Top 20.

* See the Top 50 All-brands and Top 10 models by clicking on the title *

New car sales in Belgium drop a harsh 8% year-on-year in August to 35.517 registrations, yet the year-to-date total remains in positive territory at 394.446 units, up 3% on the same period a year ago. Brand leader Volkswagen tumbles down 17% and only remains #1 thanks to a mere 18 units, with BMW snapping on its heels and holding the same 8.9% market share. Mercedes (+13%) is also threatening in third place and 8.6% share. Renault (-27%) and Peugeot (+12%) round up the Top 5 with Opel (-13%), Ford (-16%) and Hyundai (-29%) in difficulty inside the Top 10. Below, notice Nissan up 16%, Subaru up 19%, Jeep up 21%, Seat up 37% and Alfa Romeo up 46% but Citroen down 20%, Lexus down 21%, Jaguar down 26%, Honda down 32%, Mitsubishi down 48%, Mini down 55% and DS down 63%.

The VW Golf reclaims the YTD lead off the Renault Clio. 

January-July models data is now available for Belgium and there is a significant amount of change atop the rankings. Leader in July with an impressive 928 sales, the Hyundai Tucson returns to the #3 spot YTD it held back in 2016, overtaking the Opel Corsa in the process. Thanks to consistent sales month after month, the VW Golf (+52%) manages to bypass the Renault Clio to snap the YTD pole position after seven months with 2.1% share, a fragile 59 units above the Clio also holding 2.1% of the Belgian market. Such low market shares for the top 2 best-sellers make Belgium the most fragmented market in Europe (and the world) above Switzerland that has two nameplates above 3% (the VW Golf and Skoda Octavia). The VW Polo (+22%) passes the BMW X1 (+78%) for #5 while the Peugeot 3008 continues to gear up, ranking #3 in July above the Clio.
