Whereas metropolitan France is up by a very encouraging 15% in June, new car sales in New Caledonia, an overseas French territory located north-east of Australia, are stuck in muddy waters: down another 22% this month to just 671 registrations, bringing the year-to-date tally halfway through 2015 to 4.252 units, down 11% on 2014. French-Romanian low-cost manufacturer Dacia spectacularly takes the lead of the New Caledonian brands ranking in June thanks to 74 sales and 11% market share, now ranking #2 year-to-date at 8.7% above Peugeot. Traditional leader Ford is kicked down to 2nd place at 10.7% share while Toyota surges 5 spots on May to third place and a round 10% share. The French manufacturers are in difficulty: Peugeot and Citroen are down two ranks to #4 and #5 respectively while Renault is down one to #8. Notice also Mitsubishi up 9 to #11.

Toyota Hilux New Caledonia June 2015. Picture courtesy of caradvice.com.auThe Toyota Hilux is #1 in New Caledonia in June.

The New Caledonian models ranking gets a complete reshuffle this month: the Toyota Hilux is back up 17 spots on May to land in pole position for the first time since March 2013 with 51 sales and 7.6% share above the Dacia Duster at a very strong 6% of the market and the Nissan Navara up one further spot on May to #3 and 5.1%. The Ford Ranger, still #1 year-to-date and by far, is knocked down to #5 below the Fiesta. Notice also the Citroen C4 Cactus up 10 ranks to #9, the Dacia Logan posting a Top 10 ranking for the 2nd month running, the Ford Transit up 34 spots to #12, the Subaru XV up 7 to #14 and the Mini Countryman shooting up to #26 above the Renault Clio.

After a one month-hiatus we return to New Caledonia, an overseas French territory located north-east of Australia, where new car sales are up 9% year-on-year in April to 828 units but remain down 9% year-to-date to 2.990 registrations. Ford keeps the lead thanks to 93 deliveries and 11.2% share and this month Citroen jumps to #2 overall with 9.3% of the market above Peugeot and Dacia both at 8.2%, Hyundai at 7% and Kia at 6.4%. Notice Great Wall at #17, Zhengzhou/Dongfeng at #23 and BYD at #27: less stringent safety and anti-pollution laws in the territory allow Chinese carmakers to sell in New Caledonia whereas they couldn’t in Metropolitan France. The Ford Ranger, Dacia Duster and Ford Fiesta are the most popular nameplates in April, as they are year-to-date, while the Citroen C4 Cactus confirms its blockbuster status in New Caledonia by ranking 4th with 3% of the market, 3 times its share in Metropolitan France (#22 with 1% in April).

Stable. That’s what new car sales in New Caledonia, a small French Overseas Territory located north-east of Australia, are: 9,926 registrations in 2014 vs. 9.923 in 2013, a last minute recovery in a market in negative for most of the year. French manufacturers are not the preferred option of New Caledonian consumers: Ford is the best-selling brand with 13% share above Toyota at 8.3%. Renault (7.6%) is up 19% to land on the podium at #3, followed by Peugeot (-2%) and Citroen (+9%). Hyundai is up 18%, Nissan tumbles down 24%. Contrary to Metropolitan France, Chinese brands are able to operate in New Caledonia due to less stringent security and pollution laws. Great Wall is #15 with just under 2% market share, ZhengZhou/Dongfeng is #23, BYD #27, JMC #34 and Chery #35.

Isuzu D-Max New Caledonia 2014The Isuzu D-Max is one of 4 pickups in the New Caledonian Top 5.

The Ford Ranger is the most popular vehicle on the archipelago for the 6th consecutive year with sales almost identical compared to 2013 at 828 units and 8.4% share. Benefitting from tax cuts, pickup trucks are the dominant force in the New Caledonian models charts: there are 4 in the 2014 Top 5. The Toyota Hilux remains #2 despite sales down 19%, the Nissan Navara is down 3% to #4 and the Isuzu D-Max up 23% to #5. The only non-pickup in the Top 5 best-sellers, the Dacia Duster is down 11% at #3.
