Data provided by SEMO Cyprus and analysed by INNOSOFT shows a Cypriot new car market down 2% year-on-year in February to 625 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 1,471 units, up 7% on 2014. For the first time on BSCB, I can give you an all-models ranking for Cyprus. The Volvo XC60 flamboyantly takes the lead of the models ranking this month – granted, only 37 sales were sufficient to achieve this ranking, but still. The Toyota Yaris is just one unit below and becomes #1 year-to-date at 84 sales and 5.7% share. The VW Golf rounds up the podium above the Nissan Qashqai and Ford Fiesta. Notice also the Renault Captur up to #7 and the VW Polo up to #10.

Data provided by SEMO Cyprus and analysed by INNOSOFT bring to light a very dynamic start of the year for new car sales in Cyprus: up 15% year-on-year in January to 846 registrations. Leader in 2012 and 2013 but down to #3 in 2014, the Ford Fiesta reclaims the Cypriot top spot this month with 5.8% share, albeit just one sale above the Toyota Yaris and 3 above the Nissan Qashqai, last minute leader in 2014. The VW Golf is faithful to its 4th position while the Toyota RAV4 is up 4 to #5. Other great performers this month include the Hyundai ix35 at #7, the Ford Kuga at #12, Mercedes C-Class at #14 and Toyota Aygo at #15.

According to data provided by SEMO Cyprus and analysed by INNOSOFT, the Cypriot new car market has turned the corner this year: after falling down 32% in 2013, it is back up 17% in 2014 to 8,283 registrations. We knew the Ford Fiesta would be able to make it 4 consecutive years on top in 2014 as it quickly fell to third place, but the final leader is a surprise: whereas the Toyota Yaris held the top spot for most of 2014, the Nissan Qashqai benefits from a bumper month of December (9.4% share!) to snap up the top spot at the very last minute thanks to 394 sales and 4.8%. The Yaris follows at 4.6% with the Fiesta (3.9%) and VW Golf (3.5%) below.

Range Rover Evoque Cyprus 2014The Range Rover Evoque is at a world-best #6 in Cyprus in 2014!

Being one of the smallest markets in Europe, Cyprus offers a unique models ranking abnormally skewed towards popular rentals and up-market fares: the Volvo XC60 sees its sales grow 8-fold compared to 2013 to land at an astonishing 5th place with 3.3% share, the same ranking it holds at home in Sweden. Even more impressive, the Range Rover Evoque is up 4-fold on a year ago to a world-best #6 and 3% share… Notice also the Mercedes CLA at #27 and the Jaguar XF at #29. Among spectacular year-on-year progressions, let’s salute the Honda CR-V up 117% to #8, Toyota RAV4 up 619% to #9, Renault Captur up 1480% to #15 for its first full year of sales and the Toyota Corolla up 264% to #18.

Based on data provided by SEMO Cyprus and analysed by INNOSOFT, new car sales in Cyprus are once again up a very robust 11% year-on-year in November to 671 deliveries, lifting the year-to-date total to 7,728 units, up 18% on 2014. Exceptional performance of the Range Rover Evoque this month, taking the lead of the models ranking thanks to 37 sales, pure and simple. I don’t believe this has ever officially happened before in any country in the world. Other great performers this month in Cyprus include the Nissan Qashqai (#2), VW Golf (#3), Renault Captur (equal #4) and Nissan Juke (#6). The Toyota Yaris remains on top year-to-date with 4.6% of the market.

The year-to-date models ranking experiences one change in the Top 8 compared to last month: below the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Qashqai and Ford Fiesta, the Honda CR-V overtakes the Volvo XC60 to reclaim the #4 spot. In September, the Toyota RAV4 brilliantly takes the lead of the overall sales charts thanks to 45 units sold, followed by the Ford Fiesta, Nissan Qashqai, Nissan Juke (now #10 year-to-date) and Nissan Note (now #18 ytd). Notice also the Renault Captur up to #21 so far in 2014 and now distinctly above the Clio as the brand’s best-seller in Cyprus, and Mercedes placing 3 models inside the year-to-date Top 30 vs. just one last month: the CLA at #27, E Class at #28 and C Class at #30.
