The Iraqi new car market plunges by 46% year-on-year over the first four months of 2016 to just 11.732 registrations. Market leader Kia falls faster than the market at -60%, resulting in a much reduced market share, still at a towering 363% though. At #2, Toyota is down 55% to 18.2% share, selling only 20 units moe than Nissan – a company that didn’t report sales in Iraq a year ago. Hyundai (-64%) and Chevrolet (-48%) also fall hard, while Ford (+158%) and Land Rover (+235%) flourish. In the models ranking, the Kia Frontier is the most popular by far with 19.2% share and despite a 43% drop: its only adversary last year, the Toyota Hilux, is down by 73% to #4. Nissan has hit the bullseye with its D22 Pickup in Iraq: it lands directly at #2 with 7.8% share, above the Toyota Land Cruiser at 6.6%. Kia completes the Top 6 with the Sportage and Sorento, while the Chevrolet Cruze surges to #12 vs. #35 a year ago.
