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.

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.

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 Peugeot 108 is now among Denmark’s 20 most popular vehicles.
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.
