Like in neighbouring Spain and France, August sales are never tremendous in Andorra, but this year it is worse: at just 88 units, the market is down 19% year-on-year and delivers the second-worst month of sales in the last 20 years below September 2012 (82 sales)… Year-to-date, the market is down 4% on 2012 to 931 registrations. In this bleak context, only BMW manages to sell over 100 units so far this year, securing itself a splendid 11% market share. Volkswagen follows with 8.6% share ahead of Mercedes and Ford both at 7.3%.

Andorra, aka the Principalty of the Valleys of Andorra, is located in the Pyrenees mountains inbetween France and Spain and is one of the smallest countries in the world, home of 82,000 inhabitants. Thanks to DC from Autoweek.nl I can now update you on the Andorran new car market: over the first 7 months of 2012, sales are down 18% year-on-year to 858 units.

Andorran consumers definitely have posh tastes: BMW is the favourite brand in the country like in 2011 with 100 sales for an exceptional 11.7% market share. It is followed by Volkswagen at a round 10%, Land Rover at 7.3%, Audi at 6.8% with Fiat rounding  up the Top 5. Notice the absence of any French or Spanish brands even though Andorra is nested between these two countries.

Andorra, also romantically called the Principalty of the Valleys of Andorra, is located in the Pyrenees mountains inbetween France and Spain and is one of the smallest countries in the world with just 82,000 inhabitants. Thanks to DC from Autoweek.nl, Andorra is the latest addition to the list of countries covered by this blog as I am now able to share with you some official car sales data!

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Over the first 3 months of 2012 a bit over 400 cars were sold in Andorra, down 5% on 2011 or a much better situation than its neighbour Spain. And it seems like Andorrans have pretty elitist tastes when it comes to cars. Apart from Volkswagen in pole position all Top 5 brands are premium. In 2nd place we find BMW at 12% share, followed by Land Rover at 8%, Audi at 6% and Mercedes at 5%.

Looking back at the Andorran car market in 2011, we notice that BMW was the most popular brand with 204 sales or 11.3% share. At 1,799 units, the market was down 10% on 2010 and was the 2nd worst year since 1979 with 2009 when 1,715 cars sold… By comparison the record of 4,163 registrations reached in 2003 seems really far away and 2011/2012 sales figures are closer to what was observed in the country in the seventies…
