Brazil March 2014: VW Gol passed by Fiat Strada and Palio, threatened by Chevrolet Onix!

April 3rd, 2014 14 comments

Fiat Strada Brazil March 2014Surprise: the Fiat Strada is the best-selling model in Brazil this month.

* See the Top 150 best-selling models and Top 20 brands by clicking on the title! *

Brazilian consumer bought 228,728 light vehicles in March, a harsh 15% contraction over March 2013, bringing the market back into negative over the first Quarter of 2014 at 774,400 units (-2%). If the brands ranking remains relatively untouched with Chevrolet regaining the 2nd spot off Volkswagen, Hyundai taking its distance over Renault in 5th place and Fiat dominating as usual, the models charts experience nothing short of an atomic explosion this month. Traditionally extremely stable to the point of becoming borderline boring, Brazilian models data got a shake 18 months ago with the arrival of the Chevrolet Onix/Hyundai HB20 couple, and lately the new generations Ford Fiesta and Fiat Strada have made some way. But this is another level altogether, and for no less than 4 main reasons:

VW Gol Power Brazil March 2014The previous gen Gol was discontinued in December 2013, hurting overall Gol sales.

1. The VW Gol is not the best-seller

This may seem mundane, but it has become an extremely rare event in Brazil. In fact, in the last 20 years, only two models had managed to beat the Gol in a months ranking before today: the Fiat Palio in November 1997September 06, October 06 and August 07 and the Fiat Uno in February 2011December 2011 and March 2012. This means that the VW Gol has been #1 in Brazil for 232 of the past 240 months (note 1999-2001 monthly data isn’t available). But wait there’s more: not only is the VW Gol not the best-seller this month, but – shock, horror – it is down to #3. This has not happened in… 25 years, since November 1989 exactly when the Gol ranked below the Ford Escort and Chevrolet Monza. Why this sudden access of weakness? 2 main reasons: first, the discontinuation due to non-compliance to new environmental laws of the very successful previous generation of the model that was still on sale alongside the new one. Second, the arrival of the VW Up undermining the Gol, potentially not on size but surely on coolness, and selling 3,517 units in March (#16).

2. A commercial vehicle, the Fiat Strada, is the most popular vehicle in the country

There are two firsts in this sentence: for the first time in the history of Brazilian automobile, a commercial vehicle takes the lead of the sales charts. And for the first time in the 16 year-history of the nameplate, the Fiat Strada tops the monthly ranking. The more bizarre feat is that the Strada does not actually deliver its best-ever volume in March with 13,017 units vs. 13,459 last month. It lodges its highest ever market share though at 5.7% vs. 5.5% last month. The explanation for this pole position could simply be mathematical, as the Gol traditionally evolved in a 6.5%-9.5% share tunnel over the past few years. Its sudden fall below 6% has suddenly made the Brazilian models ranking a lot more competitive.

Fiat Uno Brazil March 2014The last Fiat to top the monthly ranking was the Uno in March 2012.

3. Two Fiats take the first two spots

To my knowledge this has simply never happened ever in Brazil! Both the Fiat Uno and Palio managed to hold the monthly top spot a few times as we have seen in 1., however they never ‘coordinated their efforts’ to deliver a 1-2 like the Strada/Palio couple achieved this month. The Uno topped the charts in the years leading to the 1996 launch of the Palio nameplate: 2 months in 1993, 4 months and leading the market overall in 1994 and 3 months in 1995, then again once the current generation launched in 2011-2012. The Palio for its part did so from 1997 onwards and then sporadically in 2006-2007. The only time Fiat could have managed a 1-2 was in January 1995 when the freshly imported Fiat Tipo surprised everyone by taking the lead of the ranking, but the Uno was #3 that month behind the Gol. So we are witnessing a new milestone passed by the Italian manufacturer in Brazil.

Chevrolet Onix Hyundai HB20 Brazil 2013The Chevrolet Onix has definitely taken the advantage over the Hyundai HB20.

4. The Chevrolet Onix is only 300 sales below the VW Gol

Launched purely and solely to target the VW Gol back in October 2012, the Chevrolet Onix nearly achieved its destiny this month. Ranking 4th with 12,245 sales and 5.1% share, the Onix breaks its monthly ranking, volume and market share records all at once in March, and stops only 300 units short off the VW Gol! Keeping in mind Fiat Palio and Uno sales include two generations, this means the Onix is actually well ahead of the new Palio, new Uno, and of course the Hyundai HB20 and Toyota Etios. Why this unquestionable success? Simply that Chevrolet hit the bullseye with the Onix in terms of style, size and equipment for the price. So if not in 2014 then definitely in 2015, the Onix could be the first Chevrolet to fight for the Brazilian pole position in almost 30 years, since the Monza was Brazil’s best-seller in 1986.

Brazil February 2014: Fiat Strada up to record second place!

Fiat Strada Brazil February 2014Fiat Strada

* NOW UPDATED with the Top 150 best-selling models and Top 20 brands! *

New car sales in Brazil are back in great shape, up a very healthy 11% year-on-year in February to 245,941 registrations which brings the year-to-date total to 545,692 units, up 5% on 2013. Just below the VW Gol a little weak at 14,077 sales and 5.7%, the big event this month is the 2nd place of the Fiat Strada with 13,459 sales and 5.5% share. Yes you have read well, the Strada finished the month only 618 sales off the pole position, delivering its highest ranking, volume and share in the nameplate’s 15 year-career. The Strada reached its previous best monthly volume in August 2012 at 12,981. We will find out next month whether this was just a one-off or the start of a longer-term trend that will see both the VW Gol and Fiat Uno (down to #4) decline now that the previous generations of each models aren’t on sale anymore.

VW Up Brazil February 2014VW Up

The Fiat Palio is up one spot on January to #3 and 5.4%, itself only 784 sales off the #1 spot… Excellent return to form of the Chevrolet Onix, up 4 ranks on last month to #5 with 9,561 sales and 3.9%, its best ranking and share since March 2013, while the Ford Fiesta is down 5 spots to #8 and the Hyundai HB20 down one to #9. Its sedan sibling the Hyundai HB20S hits its best ranking and share so far at #17 with 1.6%, the Renault Logan is up a further 5 ranks to #21, the Toyota Corolla up 7 to #23 and Fiat Fiorino up 20 to #31. Finally, we welcome a new entrant inside the Brazilian Top 50 this month: the VW Up! is up a massive 75 spots on January to land at #32 with 2,115 sales and 0.9% for its first full month in market.

VW Kombi Last Edition Brazil February 2014VW Kombi “Last Edition”

Now that production has definitely stopped, we bid farewell to the legendary VW Kombi, ranking outside the Brazilian Top 50 for potentially the first time since production of the model started here 64 years ago in 1950! It is down 30 spots on last month to #66 with 595 sales vs. #37 over the Full Year 2013. As far as Chinese models are concerned, the Lifan X60 leads the way at #92 followed by the JAC J2 at #95, Chery QQ at #102, JAC J3 at #104, Chery Celer at #109 and JAC J3 Turin at #112.

Chevrolet Agile Brazil January 2014Chevrolet Agile

* NOW UPDATED with the Top 100 best-selling models and Top 20 brands! *

For the first time since last September, the Brazilian new car market is up year-on-year at +1% to 299,768 registrations. Below the VW Gol sovereign at 7.2% of the market, the Fiat Uno is back up 3 spots on December to reclaim the 2nd position it traditionally holds in Brazil thanks to 13,629 sales and 4.5% while the Ford Fiesta, down one rank to #3, remains extremely solid at 13,179 units and 4.4%. For its part the Fiat Strada is up 3 spots to #5 with 12,373 sales and 4.1% share, its highest in over 3 years! This month the Strada even tickles the Palio on which it’s based, and has passed the Siena.

Edged out in extremis by the Chevrolet Onix last year, the Hyundai HB20 takes its revenge in January, selling 9,612 units at #8 vs. 9,290 and #9 for the Onix. Boosted by its facelift, the Chevrolet Agile is up a spectacular 19 spots on December to #17 with 4,684 sales and 1.6% vs. 0.8% and #30 over the Full Year 2013. Other great performers this month in Brazil include the Renault Logan up 7 ranks to #26, Peugeot 208 also up 7 to #28, the Chevrolet Tracker up 41 to #35 and the Toyota RAV4 up 13 to #70.

Brazil: The best-selling cars of all time

February 1st, 2014 4 comments

VW Gol mais vendido 1991

* See the Top 10 best-selling cars of all time in Brazil by clicking on the title! *

Thanks to Marcelo de Vasconcellos, I can share with you today the list of the 10 most popular nameplate in the history of automobile in Brazil. And the #1 is not the VW Beetle (called Fusca locally)… it is the VW Gol, originally launched in 1980 and best-seller in the country each and every year since 1987 with the exception of 1994 (Fiat Uno). The Gol is considered the quintessential Brazilian car, manufactured locally to closely fit the country’s needs. More than one million Gol have been exported to 66 countries, making the total production for the model since launch 7.2 million. Logically, the Gol is also the most stolen car in Brazil!

 

The VW Fusca was the best-seller in Brazil from 1954 to 1980

The Fiat Uno follows in second place with 3.2 million units sold since 1984. When Fiat launched the Palio in 1996 (#4 in this ranking with 2.5 million units sold), it had planned to cancel the Uno but opted to keep going, a wise decision indeed. A completely remodelled Novo Uno launched in 2011 with great success, outselling the Palio for a couple of years. The VW Fusca arrives in third position with 3 million units sold locally between 1954 and 1996, topping the Brazilian sales charts for 27 consecutive years between 1954 and 1980, one more year than the VW Gol! Notice also the Chevrolet Chevette at #6 and the Ford Corcel at #8.

Brazil December/Full Year 2013: Ford Fiesta splits now available

January 29th, 2014 No comments

* See the Brazil December 2013 post here *

I know there has been a little bit of debate around the performance of the Ford Fiesta in 2013 in Brazil given a new generation has been added into the sales figures, as has been the case for a while for the VW Gol and Fiat Uno notably. In December the Ford Fiesta reached the 2nd place with 16,299 sales which are both all-time records in the 18 years since Fiesta nameplate was first introduced in Brazil (it launched here in 1995). This is also the 2nd time the Fiesta beats its monthly volume record after the 14,375 units it sold in July. Note we are only talking about the hatchback variant here.

Ford Fiesta Brazil 2013Old generation Ford Fiesta

Thanks to Dercyde Gomes, I am able to share with you the splits between old and new generations Fiesta for December and the Full Year 2013, so we can start to picture really how much is the new generation responsible for these records. I know the perception from some of you Brazilian readers was that the old generation was still accounting for a very large part of sales, potentially even on the up due to the price cut, and the new gen was only marginally adding to the sales total. Well for December only, the new Fiesta accounts for a very substantial 49% of total sales at 7,991 units which would place it at #13 in the sales ranking, vs. 8,304 for the old gen (amended total for the nameplate being 16,295).

Over the Full Year, the new gen manages to hold 38% of total Fiesta sales at 51,718 vs. 84,970 and 62% for the old generation, with the amended total adding up to 136,688 units. So it’s fair to say the new generation is actually responsible for all these records, and at this rate it should account for over 50% of total Fiesta hatchback sales in 2014.

Brazil Full Year 2013: VW Gol distant leader, Chevrolet Onix edges Hyundai HB20 out by 13 units, both in Top 10

January 6th, 2014 6 comments

Chevrolet Onix Hyundai HB20 Brazil 2013The Chevrolet Onix wins its first full year contest with the Hyundai HB20 – by 13 units…

* See the Top 200 best-selling models and Top 20 brands by clicking on the title! *

* Check out Brazilian Historical Data spanning the last 60 years here! *

2013 will remain the year the Brazilian new car market ended a decade of explosive growth, with sales down 2% to 3,575,935 registrations. The last time new car sales in Brazil declined year-on-year was in 2003, a completely different world back then given only 1.35 million new vehicles were registered that year in Brazil. Yep you have read right, the Brazilian market almost tripled in volume in less than 10 years… Brand-wise, Fiat keeps the lead but drops 9% to 21.3% share while Volkswagen struggled to keep its 2nd place off Chevrolet, down 13% to 18.6% share vs. +1% to 18.2% for the American manufacturer. If Ford (+4%) and Renault (-2%) remain #4 and #5 respectively, Hyundai, now a local producer with the HB20 range, almost doubles its sales year-on-year to 212,900 and goes from 3% share in 2012 to 6% this year… Toyota for its part gains 55% at #7, BMW 59%, Mercedes 25% and Land Rover 30%.

VW Gol Brazil 201326th year on top for the VW Gol…

No surprises atop the models ranking this year: in spite of sales down 13% to 255,057 and 7.1%, the VW Gol is the best-seller for the 19th consecutive year and has now topped the Brazilian sales charts for 26 of the last 27 years, with only one interruption in 1994 by the Fiat Uno. Talking of which, the Uno takes a beating this year, down 28% to 184,362 sales but manages to remain #2 – 2014 may be a different story as the end of the first gen Uno Mille production will make a large dent into the nameplate’s sales. Down just 5%, the Fiat Palio rounds up the podium like in 2012.

Ford Fiesta Brazil 2013. Picture courtesy of temusados.com.brThe Ford Fiesta Hatch reaches its best-ever year-end ranking this year in Brazil.

Up 20% to #4 thanks to the new ‘kinetic’ generation, the Ford Fiesta Hatch reaches its best-ever year-end ranking in Brazil in the nameplate’s 18 year-career, with its previous best being #5 back in 1997. At 136,712 sales it is also the nameplate’s biggest ever year, and it beat its monthly record twice in 2013: in July (14,375) and December (16,299), also hitting a record #2 spot that month. The Fiat Siena also has an excellent year, boosted by the arrival of the Grand Siena new gen: +25% to #6 and beating its volume record in December at 13,747 units.

JAC J2 Brazil 2013. Picture courtesy of carplace.com.brThe JAC J2 is now the best-selling Chinese model in Brazil.

But the big news in the Brazilian Top 10 in 2013 is the simultaneous arrival of two all-new nameplates, a very rare event in a ranking traditionally extremely stable. Both launched in late 2012, were targeted at each other (along with the VW Gol and Fiat Palio), and the Chevrolet Onix and Hyundai HB20 finish the year with almost exactly the same sales total! In a 3.6 million unit-market, only 13 units (or 0.00036% market share!) separate the two models. Trailing behind since February, the Chevrolet Onix literally edges past the Hyundai HB20 in the last hours of the year, totalling 122,333 sales and 3.42100% share vs. 122,320 and 3.42064% for the HB20, ranking #8 and #9 respectively. Should GM and Hyundai be happy with these results?

The analysis continues below.

Brazil December 2013: Ford Fiesta reaches highest ever 2nd place, Fiat Siena hits record volume

January 5th, 2014 8 comments

Ford Fiesta Brazil December 2013. Picture courtesy of temusados.com.brThe Ford Fiesta had never ranked that high and sold that well in Brazil…

* NOW UPDATED with the Top 180 models and Top 20 brands! Click on title to see *

* The Full Year 2013 Top 200 models and Top 20 brands Report is here! *

The Brazilian new car market is down 2% year-on-year in December to 335,948 registrations, meaning the final 2013 total is also down 2% to a still very robust 3,575,935 units. While the VW Gol is more than ever the king of the roads at 7.4% share and as the Fiat Palio stabilises at #3 and 4.3%, there are two big events in the Top 5 this month. In the 18 years since the Ford Fiesta nameplate has been on sale in Brazil (it launched here in 1995), never before had it been able to reach as high as #2. It is now done thanks to 16,299 sales and 4.9% share, with its previous best being #3 in January 2005. This is also the Fiesta hatch’s strongest monthly sales figure ever, beating the 14,375 units it sold last July.

Fiat Siena Brazil December 2013… and the Fiat Siena hits its highest ever volume this month.

For its part the Fiat Siena delivers its highest ever monthly volume at 13,747 units and 4.1% share (previous best was 12,910 in March 2010), and manages to beat the Fiat Uno (down to a paltry #5) for the first time on record! Both the Chevrolet Onix (#7) and Hyundai HB20 (#9) slide down to their annual level, while the Renault Sandero clocks its 2nd strongest month ever at 10,626 sales (it only did better in August 2012 with 11,743) and the new generation is not even here yet!

Renault Logan Brazil December 2013. Picture courtesy of Quatrorodas.com.brRenault Logan

Further down, notice the Chevrolet Prisma gaining 21% on last month to 8,383 sales and 2.5%, the best scores for this generation so far but #11 again, the Renault Duster outpacing the Ford Ecosport for the 2nd consecutive month at #16 vs. #21, the Hyundai HB20S hitting its best ranking, volume and share so far at #19 with 5,460 units and 1.6% and the Renault Logan up 23 spots on November to #33 with 2,690 sales as the new generation starts to make its appearance on Brazilian roads. In the Chinese aisle, JAC are slipping further down, with the Chery Celer (#93), Lifan X60 (#97) and Chery QQ (#103) the best-sellers this month.

New car sales in Brazil are down 3% year-on-year to a still very solid 288,221 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 3,240,020 units, down 2% on 2012. The stability of the Brazilian models ranking is legendary (and borderline boring! oops I’ve said it) and November is a good example: the entire Top 7 is identical to October’s, with the VW Gol far above the competition at 20,363 sales and 7.1% followed by the Fiat Uno at 5.5%, the Fiat Palio at 4.8% and the Ford Fiesta hatch at 4.4%, enabling it to pass the VW Fox year-to-date to also rank #4 in 2013 so far. The archenemies Chevrolet Onix and Hyundai HB20 have stabilised at an almost identical level: they rank #6 and #7 in November at 10,318 and 10,067 sales respectively, and both commend 3.4% of the market year-to-date at 110,574 (#9) and 111,003 units (#8)…

Hyundai HB20S Brazil November 2013The Hyundai HB20 breaks into the Brazilian Top 20 for the firs time this month.

It’s outside the Top 10 that things get a little more animated so to speak. The sedan version of the Onix, the Chevrolet Prisma, misses out on a Top 10 ranking for just 9 sales, up 4 spots on October to #11 with 6,945 sales and 2.4%, the best score of this generation of the nameplate so far. The Honda Civic is down 3 ranks to a still splendid #14, the Renault Duster is up two to #16 vs. #21 year-to-date and the Hyundai HB20S breaks into the Brazilian monthly Top 20 for the first time, up 4 spots to #20 at 4,380 units and 1.5%. Boosted by the 7th generation now available in Brazil, the VW Golf is up 11 ranks to #34, the Citroen C4L is up 6 to #63 and the Chevrolet Tracker up a further two to #68.

The leading trio is unchanged but all models deliver market shares below their year-to-date levels: the VW Gol is at 6.9% vs. 7.1% followed by the Fiat Uno at 4.6% vs. 5.3% and the Fiat Palio at 4.3% vs. 5%. Another outstanding month for the Ford Fiesta, ranking #4 for the third time in the last 4 months thanks to 13,265 sales and 4.3% while the Fiat Siena is also very strong at 12,378 units and 3.9%.

Citroen C4L Brazil October 2013Citroen C4L

The Chevrolet Onix is up 2 spots on September to reach its best ranking since last March at #6 with 11,874 units and 3.8%. For its part the Hyundai HB20 is up 3 ranks to #7 at 10,467 sales and 3.3%, its highest ranking in Brazil since last April. The most impressive model in the Top 20 is however the Honda Civic, bolstered by the 2014 model and up 6 spots to #11 at 7,159 units and 2.3%, its highest ranking in the country since the #10 it hit in January 2009!

After alarmingly dropping by 23% last month, the Brazilian new car market is happily back into positive territory in September, up 6% year-on-year to 293,961 registrations, reducing the year-to-date fall to just 1% at 2,638,378 units. The VW Gol dominates the models sales charts head and shoulders with 7.5% share vs. 4.9% for the Fiat Uno back to #2. The hero of the month is once again the Fiat Siena, up to 4.3% share and 4th place thanks to 12,647 sales, now only 249 off the podium and the Fiat Palio.This is the Siena’s best ranking since February 2011, best share since February 2010 and 4th highest monthly volume ever below March 2010 (12,913) and September 2009 (12,700) and last month (12,687).

VW Kombi Brazil September 2013The VW Kombi is living its last months as a new vehicle in Brazil

The Chevrolet Onix and Hyundai HB20 seem to have now stabilised around 3% share, ranking #8 and #10 respectively, exactly like last month, with both their sedan versions the Prisma and HB20S sliding down to #16 and #23 respectively. About to be discontinued, the VW Kombi enjoys an nth wind, up 7 spots on August to #33.
