Tesla Model 3: Why it changes everything

Tesla Model 3The Tesla Model 3 has already changed the automobile industry.

Almost a month ago on March 31, Tesla unveiled the much hyped Model 3, an all-electric four-door compact sedan that will slot well below the Model S and X in the manufacturer’s lineup. It will be priced from US$35.000 up with an autonomy of 200 miles and is the first realistically affordable car Tesla is launching, in essence the ‘make or break’ car for Tesla which relies on its mass volume of sales to become a sustainable car company. The pre-order figures it generated surprised all worldwide analysts included myself.Time survey before the unveiling showed that conventional wisdom was on 55.000 pre-orders in the first 72 hours. Instead, the Model 3 reached that figure in a couple of hours, hitting 180.000 pre-orders in 24 hours, 276.000 in 48 hours, 325.000 in 72 hours and over 400.000 by now, representing potential sales of over US$14 billion. (Update: This figure was amended to 373.000 on May 19)

These pre-orders are US$1.000 refundable deposits, so they don’t equate to fully purchased cars, merely an “expression of interest”. Still, it makes the Model 3 the most pre-ordered vehicle in the history of automobile and the fastest one to reach 400.000, by far. Precedent record-holders would typically peak at 100.000 in the first month with much smaller deposits, such as the Dacia Logan during its launch in Iran a little less than a decade ago. Needless to say this is also a record for an all-electric car. All-time sales of highway capable plug-in electric cars since 1890 stand at 1 million units: the Model 3 has reached almost half this in less than a month. The electric car sales record holder is the Nissan Leaf (200.000) with the Chevrolet Volt in third (106.000). In second place, Tesla has sold roughly 120.000 Model S since launch, so Model 3 orders equate almost four times that.

In order to honour these sales, Tesla will essentially need to become a different car company altogether. Until now a disruptive niche player, it has been valued like a tech company. At roughly US$33 billion, its market capitalisation has nothing to be ashamed of compared to behemoths Ford ($51b) and General Motors ($46b), which each sell in two days what Tesla sell in one year… As for Fiat Chrysler FCA it could actually be absorbed by Tesla, valued at “just” $10 billion. Yet Tesla has never made a profit. Even if Model 3 sales will likely be spread across two to three years, it would put Tesla at a worldwide sales level comparable to Acura (205.000 sales in 2015), Infiniti (215.000) or Porsche (225.000) and looking at American brands, well above Lincoln (120.000) and potentially teasing Cadillac (278.000). In other words, among well established luxury brands.

Tesla will need to drastically ramp up its production but the company’s track record has shown this may be an issue. With initial production and deliveries announced for the end of 2017, such high pre-order figures mean people who ordered their vehicles in the past month could be waiting until 2020 to get it. That’s when refund figures could potentially start to soar. In April Tesla announced they missed their target for first quarter 2016 results at 14.000 sales vs. 16.000 because of “how much technology” they put in the Model X SUV. If Tesla struggled to deliver 16.000 vehicles because of technological hiccups, it’s hard to imagine how they can possibly spit out 400.000 units of an equally highly innovative car. Tesla will need to completely change the way they operate to achieve this, and do it fast.

But before any Model 3 is delivered to happy customers, the mere fact that it reached record levels of pre-orders is an extremely significant milestone in the history of automobile and its potential shift towards electric vehicles. Until now, the hot spots for alternative fuel vehicles – the high volumes being mainly hybrids and mainly sold by Toyota – have been locations where their success is almost entirely spurred by government measures that make is advantageous to buy an eco-friendly car: Japan, California and Norway. Until now consumers have not purchased electric or hybrid cars because they wanted to but by and large because they were pushed to. The Model 3 changes this.

Before the Model 3 unveiling on March 31, people were camping outside of Tesla dealerships to earn the right to pre-order it for $1.000 once the booking was open. Some had been lining up two or three days in advance. This is a pent-up demand frenzy that is normally reserved to new Apple products which don’t even compare in price. Also extremely significant is the fact that Tesla doesn’t spend any money on marketing. So Elon Musk has managed to create an incredible amount of desirability for an electric car, something that no manufacturer had managed to achieve before.

This shows us for the first time in the history of automobile that there is a real demand for a cool electric car. Even if the Model 3 get scrapped for lack of funds (worst case scenario), it will act as a trigger for the largest manufacturers in the world such as Volkswagen, General Motors or even Toyota to start thinking about offering an affordable electric car in their lineup. GM is already on its way with the Bolt, a $30.000 all-electric compact hatch with a 200 mile range that should hit US dealerships before the end of 2016.

World Full Year 2015: Toyota #1 in 91 markets vs. 20 for Volkswagen

Toyota Avanza Indonesia 2015. Picture courtesy itoday.co.idToyota is #1 in an estimated 91 markets around the world, including Indonesia (above). 

* See all 21 market-topping brands in the world by clicking on the title *

After the #1 models in 178 markets, for the first time on BSCB we share with you the #1 best-selling brands in 178 markets around the planet, a list topped by Toyota with an estimated 91 wins vs. “just” 20 for archenemy Volkswagen. Ford (9), Suzuki (8), Hyundai and Renault (7) follow. Note this is not a reflection of the highest worldwide sales volumes which are the subject of a separate reportonly how many countries a specific brand ranks #1 in. If no FY2015 data is available, the most recent data is used, and for about 50 countries (mostly in Africa) the #1 spot is estimated based on thorough observations of the streets of those countries via local BSCB contacts and/or recent YouTube videos.

VW Amarok Argentina November 2015Volkswagen is #1 in 20 markets, including Argentina where it assembles the Amarok (above). 

By topping this ranking, Japanese carmaker Toyota is in line with its #1 worldwide spot, however it surprises with the amount of markets it’s ranking #1 in at a staggering 91. Looking into this tally by geographic location shows a hegemony that spreads across the entire planet: 40 wins are in Africa, 16 in Asia, 11 in America, 9 in Oceania, 8 in the Middle-East and 6 in Europe. Even when removing markets where Toyota’s pole position is estimated, we arrive to 52 official wins, over 2.5 times what any other manufacturer in the world has been able to score in 2015. Archenemy Volkswagen comes second with a – ‘meagre’ in comparison – 20 markets, including 18 in Europe, the other two being China and Argentina. Its budget brand Skoda catches five wins of its own, unsurprisingly all in Eastern Europe.

Ford F-Series World 2015. Picture courtesy youtube.comFord is victorious in ten markets worldwide including the U.S. and the U.K. 

In third place, Ford boosts its total to 9 victories thanks to wins in smaller markets such as American Samoa, Haiti, New Caledonia and Tahiti, on top of some very significant ones such as the U.S. and the U.K. The 4th place of Japanese carmaker Suzuki is a very interesting one: along India and Sri Lanka where it is sold as its subsidiary brand name Maruti Suzuki, and its sphere of influence (Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan), we now find two American countries (Uruguay where it ranked #1 for the very first time in 2015, and Bolivia) as well as one African market (Angola), a testimony to the growing success of its ultra-low cost Alto and Celerio lineup.

Renault Logan Belarus June 2015. Picture courtesy ruh.byRenault wins in seven markets, and Dacia in four. 

Korean Hyundai follows with seven wins including two in America, two in the Middle East, two in Asia and one in Europe (Rep of Macedonia). Its sister brand Kia has four wins of its own, including three in the Middle-East. French manufacturer Renault also has seven wins: on top of its home country France, its dependency Martinique as well as neighbour Belgium, Renault also wins in Portugal, Belarus, Algeria and Tunisia. To its total can be added the four wins of its low-cost brand Dacia (in Bulgaria, Moldova, Morocco and at home in Romania). At a somewhat surprising 8th rank we find General Motors’ main brand Chevrolet with a total of four wins, three of them in South America on top of, interestingly, Egypt. Fiat’s market domination has narrowed to just three victories: at home in Italy, in Brazil and in Lithuania thanks to re-exports. Uz-Daewoo, Lada and Peugeot also score three wins.

China Full Year 2015: Discover the first ever imported models ranking (BSCB Exclusive)

BMW X5 China 2015The BMW X5 is the best-selling imported vehicle in China in 2015, displacing the Toyota Prado.

* See the Top 310 All-imported models Ranking Table by clicking on the title *

This is it. If a couple of days ago we reported on the U.S. last frontier, Alaska, Chinese imports are the automotive sales last frontier, a very secretive part of the worldwide market representing over one million annual units. Now BSCB has reached this frontier for you as we managed to obtain rare monthly import figures. Chinese customs and importers associations only started releasing complete import figures in June 2015 for 180 models, expanding it to all imports from July. No media outside of China has ever reported on these complete figures, and BSCB is the first to do so, in line with our pledge to improve coverage of the Chinese market. You can also see model rankings by province here. The annual imports data is an estimate based on June-December official sales and seasonally adjusted sales for the first 5 months of the year. From now on BSCB will report on Chinese imports monthly, with a 1.5 month delay necessary to allow accounting from customs data. January 2016 data will therefore be available around mid-April.

Audi Q7 China 2015. Picture courtesy auto.sohu.comAudi Q7 – 14 of the 30 best-selling imports in China are luxury SUVs.

An estimated 1.007.088 imports found a buyer in China in 2015, including 247.338 during Q4 and 83.173 in December alone. The first striking observation when looking at the best-selling imports in China in 2015 is the implacable domination of SUVs: no less than 17 of the 20 best-sellers belong to this segment with the Lexus ES, Mercedes S-Class and Mini 3 Door the only non-SUVs in the Top 20… The top of the imports ranking is very volatile with a handful of nameplates claiming the year-to-date pole position all through the year. The Toyota Prado, also assembled locally, started the yea with a bang at over 10.000 sales during the first two months, but ends the year at #2. Leader throughout most of 2015, the Jeep Compass loses its title as its sales crumbled down in the wake of the local production kick-start of the Jeep Cherokee which immediately and logically became the brand’s best-seller in China. The Compass ranked at a low #23 in December and ends 2015 in third place.

Lexus ES China 2015. Picture courtesy mydrivers.comThe Lexus ES was the #1 import over the fourth quarter of 2015. 

It’s a luxury SUV, the BMW X5, that holds the title of best-selling imported vehicle in China in 2015 with an estimated 39.309 units sold across the country. The BMW X3 follows closely in 5th place while the Mercedes M-Class, Porsche Macan, Lexus NX and Porsche Cayenne also break into the Top 10, making it six luxury SUV among China’s ten favourite imports… Note the Lexus NX was released in December 2015 and became an instant blockbuster for the Japanese marque at #8 overall and #3 in Q4. Further down, the Cadillac SRX, Range Rover Sport, Audi Q7 and VW Touareg bring the luxury SUV tally to 11 inside the Top 20. The best-selling imported passenger car, the Lexus ES, is 4th with 33.164 sales but has geared up towards the end of the year: it ranked #1 both over the 4th Quarter and in December and could pretend to the overall title in 2016.

Lincoln MKC China 2015The Lincoln MKC is among China’s top 50 imports. 

The Renault Koleos is the brand’s best-seller in China at #18 overall, and it will be interesting to follow the Koleos’s sales curve as the locally-produced Kadjar kick start sales in the country and the smaller Captur, unveiled in July, continues to climb up the ladder (it was #53 in December). Recently-launched Lincoln places the MKC at #45 with 7.724 sales, the Ford Mustang hits a beautiful 56th spot with 5.622 sales and the Tesla Model S is at #72 with 3.557 units. A few nameplates launched in 2015 but their number is nowhere near the slew of locally-produced models hitting Chinese dealerships each month. The Land Rover Discovery Sport is by far the most popular at #35 with over 10.000 units sold this year, but let’s also single out the Jaguar at #133, the Mercedes GLE at #134 (#75 in December), the Kia Carnival at #159 and the Mercedes GLE Coupe at #165.

World Full Year 2015: Discover all the #1 models in 178 countries

Toyota Hilux World 2015. Picture courtesy autodeft.comThe Toyota Hilux is the best-seller in an estimated 41 countries this year.

* See all 61 market-topping nameplates in the world by clicking on the title *

It’s that time of the year!

Today we can share with you the #1 best-selling nameplates in 178 markets around the planet, a list topped once again by the Toyota Hilux with an estimated 41 pole positions worldwide. This list is exclusive to BSCB, you won’t find it anywhere else. To refresh your memory you can see the 2014 Report hereNote this is not a reflection of the highest worldwide sales volumes which will be the object of another report very shortly, only how many countries a specific model ranked #1 in. If no FY2015 data is available, the most recent data is used, and for about 50 countries (mostly in Africa) the #1 spot is estimated based on thorough observations of the streets of those countries via local BSCB contacts and/or recent YouTube videos.

Toyota Corolla World 2015. Picture courtesy of zr.ruThe Toyota Corolla tops an estimated 15 countries.

Like in 2014, Toyota places 9 different nameplates in pole position in at least one country in 2015, with no less than 84 markets having a Toyota as their best-selling nameplate, nearly half of all worldwide markets. As it has been the case for a dozen years now, the Toyota Hilux is the one model ranking #1 the most often with an estimated 41 countries falling under its spell this year (2014: 45, 2013: 35, 2012: 31). A caveat to this figure is the fact that 27 out of these 41 winning markets are located in Africa where the volumes are still extremely low, and 21 are estimated wins. However even when ditching the estimates the Toyota Hilux is still the most prolific winner with 20 countries officially conquered (2014: 19, 2013: 8).

Toyota Land Cruiser PNG 2014The Toyota Land Cruiser is leader in 11 nations, including Papua-New Guinea. 

Once again the Toyota Corolla holds the second spot in this ranking with 14 wins including 9 confirmed (vs. 4 in 2013), welcoming one of its production hubs, Turkey, in its list. The Toyota Land Cruiser improves to third overall with an estimated 11 wins including 6 confirmed spanning Africa, the Middle-East, Asia and Oceania. Note this figure also includes the LC70 pickup variant, estimated to be the best-seller in very small African  markets such as Chad, Mali, Somalia and South Sudan where the military, United Nations and NGOs are virtually the only purchasers of new vehicles. The VW Golf follows but drops two countries vs. last year to 10, still all in Europe and including 9 confirmed – Albania being the wild card.

Ford Ranger World 2015The Ford Ranger upgrades to 6 wins vs. 4 a year ago. 

The Ford Ranger improves to 6 wins including 4 confirmed (vs. 4 and 2 in 2014), taking the lead for the first time in Cambodia and New Zealand. The Skoda Octavia sheds 3 countries to fall to 6 as well, all confirmed and all in Europe. We then have three nameplates each winning 5 markets worldwide. The Dacia Logan adds Ukraine to its existing list composed of Romania, Moldova, Algeria and Morocco, while the Renault Clio keeps France, Portugal and Slovenia but also benefits from overseas French territories being counted separately (#1 in French Guiana and Martinique).

Suzuki Alto 800 World 2015The Suzuki Alto spreads its hegemony into South America and Africa in 2015. 

A very interesting development is the Suzuki Alto starting to spread its hegemony outside of India and its sphere of influence (Sri Lanka, Bhutan) and into South America (Uruguay) and Africa (Angola). The Toyota Prado and Yaris follow with 4 wins each, one confirmed for the Prado and 3 for the Yaris. All other nameplates win less than four markets worldwide. Note no Chinese nameplate leads any market outside China in 2015 (there were three in 2014).

USA Full Year 2015: Exclusive State by State rankings now available

Chevrolet Silverado USA 2015. Picture courtesy caranddriver.comThe Chevrolet Silverado wins 19 U.S. states in 2015 vs. 15 in 2014.

* See the Top 5 Cars and Top 5 Trucks for each U.S. State by clicking on the title *

For the second year in a row and thanks to JATO Dynamics we can share with you today separate rankings for the Top 5 best-selling cars and trucks for each U.S. State. This data is exclusive to BSCB, you won’t find it anywhere else. JATO Dynamics splits the sales of the Ford F-Series into F-150, F-250 Super Duty and F-350 Super Duty, which makes for a lot of interesting insights into the varying customer tastes all across the U.S. The market push towards light trucks is confirmed: a truck is #1 in 43 States out of 51 vs. 39 in 2014, with cars winning just 8 States vs. 12 a year ago.

Ram 1500 USA 2015. Picture courtesy caranddriver.comThe Ram Pickup wins just one less State than the Ford F-150 in 2015. 

At this little game, the Chevrolet Silverado is the runaway leader with no less than 19 States won in 2015, up from 15 in 2014. The Silverado’s largest volume wins are in Michigan (33.247), Ohio (20.874) and Pennsylvania (19.685). The Ford F-150 drops from 12 to 8 wins to find itself just one win above the Ram Pickup, itself going from 5 wins in 2014 to 7 this year. The Ford pickup’s best-performing State in once again Texas (78.329), followed by Georgia (16.357) and Missouri (10.880). As for the Ram Pickup, its area of predilection is the northwest of the country, with wins in Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming, as well as New Mexico. Its largest winning volume is achieved in neighbouring Colorado (9.087).

2015 Toyota Camry USA. Picture courtesy of motortrend.comThe Toyota Camry is #1 overall in just three States this year (6 in 2014). 

Justifying its 14th consecutive year as the best-selling passenger car in the country, the Toyota Camry is one of only two cars to win more than one State but its 2015 tally has thawed dramatically to 3 (District of Columbia, Maryland and North Carolina) vs. 6 a year ago. It however wins in the car category 18 times vs. 15 in 2014. The Nissan Altima drops Tennessee but wins Nevada and Delaware to add up to two wins this year, as well as winning in the car category nine times in 2015 vs. ten in 2014.

Toyota RAV4 USA 2015The Toyota RAV4 is victorious in two states in 2015, it had none in 2014.

The Honda CR-V wins 3 States like in 2014 including the hotly contested New York State (27.490 sales) where it distances the Honda Accord and Chevy Silverado. The Toyota RAV4 makes its appearance in the State win table this year thanks to two overall victories: in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It had none in 2014. The other SUV to win a State in 2015 is the Subaru Forester, in Washington State.

Toyota Tacoma USA 2015b. Picture courtesy caranddriver.com.jpgThe Toyota Tacoma wins Hawaii again in 2015. 

Six additional nameplates are #1 in just one State this year: the Ford Transit posts the first ever win of its short career in Arkansas – most probably due to the concentration of rental sales there, and is the only van to top any State in the U.S. in 2015. Two pickup trucks hold onto their unique U.S. pole position: the GMC Sierra is unbeaten in Vermont like in 2014 and the Toyota Tacoma is the most popular nameplate in Hawaii for the fourth consecutive year.

Toyota Corolla USA 2015. Picture courtesy caranddriver.comThe Toyota Corolla becomes the most popular nameplate in Florida in 2015. 

Three passenger cars manage to snap one State up this year. The Honda Accord drops from 3 wins in 2014 to just New Jersey this year, one beneficiary being its smaller sibling the Honda Civic, overtaking the Accord to win California with a very impressive 66.759 sales. Finally, the Toyota Corolla bypasses the Camry to become king in Florida with 44.100 deliveries. Looking into the cars ranking in isolation, the Subaru Outback (9 wins) and Ford Fusion (7 wins) are also very successful, both improving on their 2014 scores, while the Chevrolet Cruze and Hyundai Elantra both score one win.

Ford F-350 Super-Duty USA 2015. Picture courtesy caranddriver.comThe Ford F-350 Super Duty is #4 in Montana in 2015.

Now for the detail of the Top 5 cars and trucks in each State. Splitting the Ford F-Series into all its variants means the Super Duty models also make their appearance among the Top 5 best-selling trucks: the F-250 Super Duty is #5 in Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas (25.963 sales) while the larger F-350 Super Duty does even better, reaching #4 in Montana, and also ranking #5 in Utah and Wyoming. Other performing trucks include the Chevrolet Equinox (#2 in Illinois and Michigan), Ford E-Series (#3 in District of Columbia), Nissan Rogue (#3 in New Jersey), Ford Escape (#4 in Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri) and the Jeep Grand Cherokee (#4 in New Jersey).

Toyota Prius USA 2015. Picture courtesy caranddriver.comCalifornia is the only U.S. State where the Toyota Prius breaks into the Top 5.

Among passenger cars, the Chevrolet Impala (Montana), Malibu (Michigan, Nebraska), Ford Focus (Maine, Missouri) reach #2, the Hyundai Sonata (Alabama) and Toyota Yaris (Montana) hit #3 while the Kia Soul (Oregon), Nissan Sentra (Mississippi) and Subaru Impreza (Colorado) lift to #4. Finally, let’s deliver a special mention to the Toyota Prius. Absent of absolutely all Top 5 cars ranking in all U.S. States bar one: California where it sells an impressive 42.995 units, despite being in sharp decline over the previous years. The new generation could help the Prius back up the Californian ranking in 2016, but the pole position will be a challenge when petrol prices are at 12-year lows.

Alaska and Hawaii, partly due to their isolation from the rest of the 49 States, display widely different purchasing patterns and will be covered in detail Exclusive Special Reports shortly. You can see their Top 10 best-sellers along with all other U.S. States below.

World Full Year 2015: Toyota #1 manufacturer as VW backs off

Toyota Tacoma World 2015. Picture courtesy motortrend.comToyota Tacoma. Toyota is the #1 manufacturer in the world in 2015. Picture motortrend.com

Toyota Motor Corp. remains the best-selling manufacturer in the world in 2015 and for the 4th consecutive year, becoming the only company to deliver more than 10 million vehicles this year as the Volkswagen Group backed off as a result of its emissions scandal. Global sales for Toyota Motor, including its Hino and Daihatsu units, are down 0.8% to 10.15 million vehicles whereas Volkswagen is down 2% to 9.9 million units including its MAN and Scania heavy truck brands. General Motors for its part is up 0.2% to 9.8 million, another very close finish on the overall podium this year.

VW Golf World 2015. Picture courtesy caradvice.com.auIts emissions scandal cost Volkswagen Group the coveted #1 worldwide spot.

Volkswagen led the way halfway through the year but had to give up the top spot to the Japanese manufacturer as it got embroiled in its biggest crisis so far, being forced to halt sales of diesels in some markets such as the U.S. and scrambling to repair some 11 million cars. The Volkswagen brand is down 5% to 6.254m units, overtaken by the Ford brand (6.514m), while Audi is up 4%, Skoda and Seat up 2% and Porsche up 19%. To make it five consecutive wins, Toyota has bought the rest of its 51% share in Daihatsu, in a move to strengthen its position in emerging markets, notably South-East Asia.

Baojun 560 China September 2015. Picture courtesy shwuling.comChina-exclusive Baojun allowed General Motors to post a 3rd record year in a row.

In third place, General Motors owes its third consecutive year of record global sales to its Chinese operations where it outpaced Volkswagen Group to rank #1 overall at 3.612.653 deliveries (+5%) vs. 3.548.600 (-3%). If the Chevrolet brand crumbles by 7% worldwide partly due to its retreat from Europe, Buick is lifted 9% by China, GMC is up a very healthy 11%, but it’s the Chinese-only entry level Baojun brand that enables GM to stay in positive worlwide this year, accounting for an additional 300.000 units in 2015 thanks to the tremendous success of the 730 MPV and 560 crossover (pictured above).

Renault Kwid World 2015. Picture courtesy motorbeam.comRenault-Nissan may have cracked the Indian market wide open with the Renault Kwid.

The Renault-Nissan alliance gains a timid 0.8% to hit a record 8.53m deliveries, with Nissan Motor up 2% to 5.42m vehicles and the Renault Group up 3% to 2.8m sales compensating a 30% drop at Avtovaz (Lada). Brand-wise, Nissan ends the year just below 5 million sales, cementing its 4th place overall below Toyota, Ford and Volkswagen, Renault is up 2% to 2.17m units, Dacia continues to improves at +8% and 550.920 sales, China-only Venucia is up 9% to 124.000 deliveries and recently relaunched Datsun posts a still very models 86.000 units in four major markets (Russia, Indonesia, India and South Africa).

Genesis EQ900 South Korea 2015Can the new Genesis brand bring Hyundai-Kia back to high profit rates?

Hyundai-Kia follows in 5th place in the Global Groups ranking for 2015 with stable sales at 7.88m but declining profits. Hyundai is the 5th best-selling brand in the world at 4.96m sales while Kia ranks #9 at 2.92m. Ford posts the largest year-on-year gain among the Top 10 Groups in the world by far: up 5% to 6.63m sales and its namesake brand outpaces Volkswagen to rank #2 overall with 6.51m units sold.

Jeep Renegade World 2015Jeep’s outlandish growth was cancelled by Fiat’s decline in 2015. 

In 7th place we find FCA Fiat-Chrysler Automobile: behind Sergio Marchione’s tranquil confidence hide stagnating – albeit more profitable – worldwide sales at 4.6m units. A very momentous change of balance is happening right before our eyes at FCA: while Fiat sales plummet 12% to 1.67m vehicles, handicapped by horrendous scores in Latin America, the Jeep brands keep posting outlandish growth rates: +21% to 1.3m units in 2015.

Mercedes GLE World 2015Mercedes surged 13% in 2015, closing in on BMW for the title of #1 luxury brand in the world.

In the luxury race, BMW celebrates 11 consecutive years in the #1 spot but is now under intense pressure from Mercedes, jumping from #3 in 2014 to #2 this year. Sales of BMW-branded cars are up 6% or exactly 100.000 units year-on-year to 1.91m, while Mercedes-branded vehicles are up a whipping 13% to 1.87m, outpacing Audi up just 5% to 1.8m. Note all three brands lodge all-time record years in 2015. In the case of Mercedes this is the 5th record year in a row, and the German luxury manufacturer benefitted from very strong gains in China where it surged 33% to 373.459 sales.
