The Algerian new car market continues its free fall, and although no total figures are communicated, it’s safe to assume a drop of at least 40% year-on-year over the first half of 2014… Volkswagen brilliantly takes the lead of the brands ranking in June thanks to 3,864 sales, up a spectacular 53% on June and overtaking traditional leaders Peugeot (-38%), Renault (-54%), with Dacia up a splendid 36% to 4th place and Hyundai down 18% at #5. Notice also Skoda now a regular in the Top 10 at #8. Year-to-date, Renault is in charge but down 46% ahead of Peugeot (-59%!), Hyundai (-4%) and Dacia (-26%).
Model-wise, the Dacia Logan (leader over the Full Year 2013) edges past the VW Polo (leader last April) for just one sale to become the best-seller in June at 2,127 vs. 2,126 for the German supermini, while the Hyundai Accent is back up to #3 and takes the year-to-date lead at 12,142 sales (+77%!). The Kia Picanto shines at #4 and the Peugeot 208 and 301 seem to both be climbing back the ladder somehow at #5 and #6. They are down -54% and -70% year-to-date however, some pretty disgusting results for the French manufacturer.
