Danish new car sales could have come to a crossroads: they are down year-on-year for the third time in the past 4 month in February at a worrying -8% to 13,598 units, bringing the year-to-dat total to 29,629 registrations, down 4% on 2014. Peugeot did it: after the 108 shockingly put an end to 29 consecutive months of VW Up reign in Denmark last month, the diminutive Peugeot confirms it is the new kid on the block and lodges a second straight month in the Danish pole position thanks to 596 sales and 4.4% share, only 3 units above its big sister the Peugeot 208 in 2nd place. The VW Up is back up from a dismal #6 in January to #3 and also ranks #3 year-to-date. Notice also the Hyundai i10 up to #8, the VW Passat up 30 spots on last month to #14, the Citroen C4 Cactus up 4 to #19 and the Kia Cee’d up 30 to #24.

New car sales in Denmark are down year-on-year for the second time in the past 3 months in January at -1.5% to 16,031 registrations. Change of guard atop the Danish models ranking this month: after 29 (!) consecutive months of reign, the VW Up tumbles down to #6 in January to give up its throne to the Peugeot 108, accessing to the monthly pole position for the first time anywhere in the world with a royal 1,134 sales and 7.1% share. It’s a bumper month for French manufacturer Peugeot in Denmark, also placing the 208 at #2 and the 308 at #9. The Mitsubishi Space Star stuns by rounding up the podium with 611 units and 3.8% while the Toyota Yaris impresses at #5.

No sign of slowing down for the Danish new car market: with annual sales up 4% on 2013, it lodges a 4th consecutive all-time record year at 189,051 registrations. No other European market is enjoying such a state of grace this year. Volkswagen remains the most popular manufacturer drops 1.2 percentage point to 12.2% share while Peugeot is up a fantastic 29% to 2nd place and 9.6% of the market, boosted by the success of the 308 (+159%) and the all-new 108 landing directly at #18. Ford is kicked down to #3, Skoda overtakes Toyota to rank #4 and Nissan replaces Opel in the Top 10 thanks to sales up 27%.

2014 is the year low-cost brand Dacia finally made its mark in Denmark with sales up fourfold to 2,812 units thanks to the introduction of the Logan MCV (#49) and Duster (#65). Mitsubishi goes from virtually nowhere (86 sales in 2013) to blockbuster (2,263 units in 2014) with the Space Star clocking up 1,709 deliveries and the ASX up 1911% to 362 sales. Notice also Tesla up 311%, Smart up 148%, Porsche up 85%, Jaguar up 69% and Jeep up 1200%, coming off just one sale in 2013.

Dacia Logan MCV Denmark 2014The Logan MCV gave Dacia a reason to exist in Denmark.

Despite a clear deceleration (-22%), the VW Up maintains itself on top of the Danish sales charts for the third year in a row with 10,106 sales and 5.3% share. The Up remains the only model in the history of automobile in Denmark to sell over 10,000 units in a single year and it has achieved this feat for the third time this year after 2013 (12.909) and 2012 (10.632). The next best score was hit by the the Toyota Carina in 1994 (9,635 units). The Peugeot 208 is unaffected by the arrival of the 2008 here, up two spots to #2 with the Skoda Octavia rounding up the podium thanks to sales up a magnificent 53% to 5,406.

Mitsubishi ASX  2014Mitsubishi ASX sales are up 1911% year-on-year in Denmark.

With the Toyota Aygo down 15% to #4, the Citroen C1 up 1% to #7, the Peugeot 107 down 34% to #17 and its replacement the 108 at #18, the Kolin triplets add up to another astounding 16,190 sales for a world-best 8.6% share, up 3% year-on-year. This was almost enough to beat the Bratislava triplets (VW Up-Skoda Citigo-Seat Mii) down a harsh 24% to 16,389 units and 8.7% share. All-in-all the two families of microcars hold 17.3% of the Danish market, a share unheard of anywhere else in the world. Other notable developments in Denmark this year include the VW Golf up 24% and 5 spots to #5, the Renault Captur up 179% to #20, Hyundai i10 up 49% to #21, Nissan Note up 82% to #31, Peugeot 2008 up 115% to #33 and the Mazda3 up 171% to #36.

Rare enough to highlight it: the Danish new car market is actually down year-on-year in November at -5% to 15,155 registrations, the lowest November figure since 2011. Fear not, the year-to-date tally still stands at an all-time high 173,631 units after 11 months, up 3% on 2013. There’s no one stopping the VW Up: the German minicar lodges an out-of-this-world 28th straight month in pole position, however at just 709 sales and 4.7% it is below its YTD level of 5.4% and only 39 units above the Peugeot 108 in 2nd place (the gap between the two nameplates was 305 sales in October). Below the VW Polo very strong again in third position, the Mitsubishi Space Star flamboyantly gains 14 spots on October to land at an excellent #4 ranking with 518 sales and 3.4%. Notice also the Citroen C1 up 9 to #14, the Citroen C4 Cactus stable at #17, the Mercedes C-Class up 11 to #20 and the Audi A4 up 15 to #21.

Slight setback for new car sales in Denmark in October: down 3% to 16,370 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to an all-time 158.476 units, up 4% on 2013 which was already a record year. Volkswagen is as dominant as ever in the brands ranking, reaching a 13.2% market share vs. 12.1% year-to-date. It is followed by Peugeot at 9.9%, Citroen at 7.1%, Ford at 7%, Toyota and Skoda both at 6.9% and Kia at 5%. No surprises atop the models ranking: the VW Up has now been topping the Danish sales charts for an incredible 27 consecutive months thanks to 860 units and 5.3% share.

In 2nd place the Peugeot 108 surges 9 spots on September to reach its best ranking in the world so far at 555 sales and 3.4%. Volkswagen trusts the next two spots with the Polo at #3 and Golf at #4. Other great performers this month in Denmark include the Peugeot 308 up a massive 36 ranks on last month to #7 vs. #20 YTD and #50 in FY2013, the Hyundai i20 stable at #8 vs. #17 YTD, the Citroen C4 Cactus up 12 spots to an excellent 16th place with 2.2% market share vs. #60 YTD and the Mitsubishi Space Star at #18 vs. #51.

Good times can’t last forever: Danish new car sales are shockingly down 1% year-on-year in September to 14.432 registrations, still delivering the 2nd best September score in the history of automobile in Denmark. The year-to-date total stands at an all-time record 142.105 units, up 5% on 2013. Only models data is available for now, the brands ranking will follow shortly. The VW Up lodges a 26th straight month in pole position with 654 sales and 4.5% share, one full percentage point below its year-to-date level however. Volkswagen manages a rare 1-2 this month in Denmark with the Golf snapping up 2nd spot thanks to 488 units and 3.4% share. The Ford Fiesta and Skoda Octavia follow, while the Toyota Aygo is down 3 spots to #5, the Peugeot 108 down 6 to #11 and the Citroen C1 down two to #15. Not a great month for the Kolin triplets. The Bratislava triplets fare better: on top of the sovereign VW Up, the Skoda Citigo is up two ranks to #9 and the Seat Mii is down 3 to #25 but still above the #28 it holds year-to-date. Notice also the Mitsubishi Space Star down 3 to a still very impressive 12th place, the Mazda3 up to #19 vs. #34 year-to-date and the Citroen C4 Cactus up 9 to #28.

New car sales in Denmark are back into positive in August at +2% year-on-year to an all-time high 14,604 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 127,671 units, up 6% on 2013 and here to an all-time record after 8 months. The VW Up smoothly lodges its 25th consecutive month in pole position thanks to 711 sales and 4.9% share, however this is below its year-to-date level of 5.6%. Plus the Toyota Aygo, now lifted by the new generation, is up to 4.5% share in 2nd place. Can the Up reign come to an end soon? We welcome two new nameplates inside the monthly Danish Top 10 this month: the Peugeot 108 is up 15 spots on July to break into the Top 5 in 5th place thanks to 443 sales and 3% share – its best monthly ranking in the world so far, and the Mitsubishi Space Star is an instant hit here: up a huge 76 ranks for its first full month of sales to #9 at 333 units and 2.3% share.

Shock, horror: for the first time in years, the Danish new car market is down year-on-year, granted by a tiny 0.4% to 14,267 registrations in July. Rest assured the year-to-date tally is still very much in positive territory at a record 113,067 units, up 6% on 2013. Denmark is the land of minicars, so it’s with hardly contained excitement that we are now witnessing the new generation Kolin triplets (because produced there) claw their way back up the sales charts: below an unassailable VW Up leader for the 24th month in a row (yep – exactly two years!), the Toyota Aygo shoots up 24 spots on June to a splendid 2nd place with 463 sales and 3.2%.

The Citroen C1 for its part is up 13 ranks to reclaim a spot inside the Top 10 at #9 with 347 units and 2.4% and the Peugeot 108 breaks into the Top 20 for its first full month of sales in the country at #20 and 232 units for a 1.6% market share. That’s 1,042 sales and 7.1% share for the Kolin triplets vs. 1,208 and 8.5% for the Bratislava crew (Up/Citigo/Mii)… But wait there’s more movement in Denmark this month: the Peugeot 308 is up a massive 16 ranks on June to round up the podium at #3 with 448 sales and 3.1%, the Kia Rio is up to #8, the VW Polo up to 20 and the Citroen C4 Cactus stuck at #69.
