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.

In a wobbly European context, Danish new car sales do not understand the word ‘crisis’ and even go from strength to strength this year: on the back on 3 consecutive all-time record years in 2011, 2012 and 2013, February sales are up a further 20% year-on-year to 14,759 registrations, a new-all time high for the month, bringing the year-to-date total to 31,028 units, up 15% on 2013. Volkswagen reclaims the brands pole position off Peugeot at 12.1% share vs. 10.9% while model-wise, it’s still city car heaven out there: the VW Up celebrates 19 consecutive months at #1 with 962 sales and 6.5% share, the Peugeot 107 in runout mode is up 3 spots on January to #2 and 4.6%, ahead of the Ford Ka up a huge 25 ranks to #3 and 4.4%, the Toyota Aygo at #4 and the Chevrolet Spark at #5.

Denmark Full Year 2013: VW Up confirms supremacy in record-breaking year

The Danish new car market cannot stop amazing: it lodges a third consecutive all-time record year in 2013 thanks to 182,198 registrations, up 7% on 2012. And there is one winner and one winner only this year in Denmark: the VW Up. It completely dominated the sales charts in 2013, ranking #1 each and every single month of the year – an incredible achievement in a very volatile Danish market, peaking at a record 10.4% share in January and finishing the year with 12,909 sales and 7.1% share, up a very robust 21% on 2012. Never before had a single model sold that many units in a single year in Denmark, eclipsing the record the Up set at 10,632 last year, with the third best annual volume delivered by the Toyota Carina in 1994 (9,635 units).

Skoda Citigo Denmark 2013The Skoda Citigo ranks at a world-best #3 in Denmark in 2013.

Danish customers are obsessed with micro-cars: the Up’s twins also deliver world-best performances in Denmark this year: the Skoda Citigo is up 55% on 2012 to climb onto the year-end podium at #3 with 6,015 sales and 3.3% (vs #10 at home in Czech Republic) while the Seat Mii is up 39% to #21 at 2,560 units and 1.4% (vs. #105 in Spain). In 2nd place overall like in 2012 the Toyota Aygo is down 12% to 6,271 sales and 3.4%, with the Peugeot 107 at #7 with 2.7% and the Citroen C1 at #9 with 2.5%. This means the Kolin triplets (Aygo/C1/107) add up to 15,753 sales and 8.6% this year (-7%) vs. 21.484 and 11.8% share for the Bratislava triplets (Up/Citigo/Mii), up 31% year-on-year. These two families account for more than one in every 5 vehicles sold in Denmark this year!

The next two best-sellers are French: the Peugeot 208 is up 112% to #4 with 5,597 sales and 3.1% and the Renault Clio IV is up 2791% to #5 with 5,550 units and 3% share, both for their first full year in market, and are followed by the Ford Fiesta up a very impressive 65% to 5,451 units. Outstanding performance of the VW Golf doubling its sales year-on-year thanks to the 7th generation at #10 with 4,190 sales, the Ford Ka up 110% to #11, Skoda Octavia up a huge 143% to #13, Nissan Qashqai up 52% to #17 and the Audi A3 up 82% to #25. No less than 11 all-new models make their way in this year’s Top 150, led by the Renault Captur at #56, Peugeot 2008 at #60, Opel Adam at #68, Dacia Lodgy at #81 and Seat Toledo at #97. Finally, notice the Tesla Model S landing at #125 and the Renault Zoe at #132.
