After declining for the first time in 16 months in April, the Egyptian market’s cooling down accelerates: down a worrying 14% year-on-year in May to 20.152 registrations which brings the year-to-date total to 114.087 units, now up just 5% on 2014. The Chevrolet TFR establishes it total domination of the models ranking by selling 2.175 units for a 10.8% market share vs. just 1.574 and 7.2% for the Hyundai Verna, once upon a time the unchallenged leader of the Egyptian market. The Hyundai ix35 continues its impressive progression and leaps onto the podium thanks to a round 1.000 sales and 4.6% share, knocking the Nissan Sunny down to #4. Solid month for the Toyota Corolla at #5 and the Geely Emgrand 7 at #7 with the Mitsubishi Lancer EX stable at #6. The Speranza Envy stays at #13 vs. #28 year-to-date, the Peugeot 301 is up 27 spots on April to #17, the Subaru XV up 93 to #30 and the new generation BMW X5 brilliantly lands directly at #53.

For the first time since November 2013, Egyptian new vehicle sales decline year-on-year at -3% in April to 21.742 registrations, however the year-to-date total is still up by a dynamic 10% to 93.935 units. Chevrolet remains king of the castle by far despite sales down 9% on a year ago to 4.908 and 22.6% share, above Hyundai (14.3%), Nissan (10.2%) and Toyota (9.9%). Suzuki (+117%) and Mitsubishi (+119%) both double their deliveries year-on-year while Skoda is up 58% and 148% year-to-date. Thanks to sales down just 10%, Chinese manufacturer Geely is back up to #7 overall (vs. -50% and #10 so far in 2015) while fellow Chinese Speranza – a rebrand of bad mouthed Chery assembling cars locally – is back inside the Top 10 at #8 thanks to sales up 53% to 690.

In the models ranking, the Chevrolet TFR (aka D-Max) is settling comfortably in its throne with 8.7% share vs. just 6.5% for its archenemy the Hyundai Verna with the Nissan Sunny rounding up the podium as usual. Excellent performance of the Hyundai ix35 up 23 spots on March to 4th place overall and of the Mitsubishi Lancer EX staying at #5 vs. #17 over the FY2014. The Geely Emgrand 7 is back up 26 ranks to #6, the Suzuki Ciaz is stuck at an outstanding 12th position, the Speranza Envy (picture above) is up 25 spots to #13, the Chevrolet New Optra (aka Baojun 730) is up 27 to #22 and the Suzuki New Alto 800 shines at #25.

The Egyptian new light vehicle market is in great shape once again this month: up 11% year-on-year in March to 25,491 registrations, which brings the first quarter total to 72,193 deliveries, up 15% on 2014. The Chevrolet TFR pickup (aka Isuzu D-Max) cements its newfound leadership of the market with 2,404 sales, above the Hyundai Verna (2.162) and Nissan Sunny (1.425) back to the third spot it holds year-to-date. The Mitsubishi Lancer EX is up a further two spots on February to #5 overall, after a difficult start of the year the Renault Logan unlocks itself at #7 as does the Sandero at #23. But the big surprise this month is the 12th place of the Suzuki Ciaz, up a whopping 49 spots on February thanks to 555 sales and 2.2% share, thus shooting up to #25 so far in 2015. Affordable sedans are a pet fave of Egyptian crowds so the Ciaz could well climb further up in the coming months.

Egyptian new vehicle sales are definitely back on an explosive growth trend after a couple of wobbly years due to an unstable political situation. The market is up a vertiginous 53% year-on-year in September to 28,264 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total to 210,544 units, up 48% on the same period in 2013 and already above the Full Year 2013 total (195,869 sales)! After being overtaken by the Chevrolet TFR (aka Isuzu D-Max) in August, the Hyundai Verna, an Accent from two generations ago mainly used as taxi, reclaims its crown in the models sales charts thanks to an excellent 2,650 sales and 9.4% share vs. 2,366 and 8.4% for the TFR. Below, the Nissan Sunny and Geely Emgrand 7 are faithful to the #3 and #4 respective spots they occupy year-to-date, while the Chevrolet Aveo is up one notch to 5th place.

The big event is in 6th position: boosted by the arrival of the new generation, the Renault Logan Sedan shoots up 31 ranks on August and sells 1,020 units for a 3.6% market share vs. 1.3% and #21 year-to-date. This is the Logan nameplate’s best ranking in Egypt since December 2012 when it actually ranked #1. Other great performers this month include the Mitsubishi Lancer EX up 6 spots to #10, the Kia Sportage stable at #13 vs. #22 YTD, the Renault Sandero returning to the charts here too thanks to the new model at #19 vs. #38 YTD, the Jinbei Haise splitting its ranking in two at #23 vs. #45 YTD, Nissan Sentra at #33 vs. #76, Peugeot 3008 at #41 vs. #80 and the Suzuki New Alto 800 stabilising around the #50 mark at #52.

We welcome no less than 5 all-new models in the Egyptian sales charts in September, 3 of which Chinese. We start with the Hyundai Grand i10 imported from India and landing directly at the Top 50’s doorstep at #54 with 80 units sold. The DFSK (DongFeng) K01 mini pickup follows at #70 and 42 sales while the BAIC (Beijing Auto) MZ40 minivan and the Brilliance-Jinbei S30 both sell 32 units and rank #79 and #80 respectively. Lastly the Ford Ka sells one unit but it is unclear whether this is a leftover from the European model or the start of the new Brazilian model being imported here. If you have more info about the Egyptian Ka please get in touch by commenting on this article.

Devastated by internal trouble a year ago, the Egyptian new car market is mechanically up 128% year-on-year in August to 26,465 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 182,280 units, up 47% on 2013. Brand-wise, Chevrolet (24.1% share) and Hyundai (16%) move like the market at +127% and +138% respectively, however Toyota (+86%) is outpaced while Nissan is coming in strong at #4 and 9% share. Notice also Kia up 248% to #5 and Suzuki up 147% to #7. The Chevrolet TFR (a rebadged Isuzu D-Max) takes the lead of the Egyptian models ranking in August thanks to an excellent 2,326 sales and 8.8% share, earning it the right to tease the year-to-date #1 the Hyundai Verna at 15,735 sales and 8.6% vs. 15,831 and 8.7% for the Verna. The last months of the year will be fascinating to follow in order to see which of these two will come out the 2014 winner. The new generation Nissan Sunny rounds up the podium like it does year-to-date, while the Chevrolet Lanos is back up 5 spots on July to #4, overtaking the Geely Emgrand 7. Notice also the Hyundai Elantra (#8), Skoda Octavia (#10) and Kia Sportage (#13) clearly overperforming this month.
