Philippines January 2017: Toyota Fortuner takes control in record market

According to data published by the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (Campi) and the Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA), the Filipino market is up by a gargantuan 28% year-on-year in January to an all-time record 30.425 registrations. This figure is in fact higher as the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors (Avid) did not release figures – and this impacts marques like Hyundai. The fantastic year-on-year gain is partly due to an upcoming excise tax hike rushing customers to forward their purchase.

The heavily discounted Mitsubishi Adventure is the best-selling non-Toyota in January.

Toyota manages to double the market’s growth at +56% to 14.542 sales, now holding a mammoth 47.8% share vs. 39.2% a year ago. The Japanese manufacturer sells almost 3 times the amount of any other carmaker in the country, starting with Mitsubishi (+2%) ahead of Ford (+2%), Honda (+24%) and Nissan also outpacing the market at +55%. Suzuki gains 42% to #6 but Isuzu (-33%) and Kia (-19%) struggle. There is now one Chinese manufacturer in the Filipino Top 10 charts: Foton at #9 with 336 units sold for a 1.1% market share. Toyota also dominates the Passenger Cars charts with 45.7% share above Mitsubishi (13.7%), Honda (11.1%), Ford (9.1%) and Suzuki (6.5%).

Mitsubishi Mirage G4 

Model-wise, the Toyota Fortuner takes control of the ranking, outpacing the traditional leader, the Toyota Vios, by a large margin: 3.563 vs. 2.954 sales. Toyota is estimated to monopolise the Top 5 with the Vios, Innova, Hiace and Wigo in tow. The heavily discounted Mitsubishi Adventure is the best-selling non-Toyota nameplate,  eagerly awaiting its replacement due this year. Current discounts amount to a staggering 70% of the base price. The Mitsubishi Mirage G4, Ford Ecosport and Everest follow.

Below the Toyota Vios estimated to reign supreme over the models ranking with more than 10% market share, the Toyota Hiace and Wigo also post four-digit sales figures but it’s a string of recently launched SUVs that is setting the Filipino market on fire.

Even though it posted a sixth consecutive all-time record year in 2015, the Filipino new car market isn’t done yet: January sales are up a further 28% to 23.808 units, February is up 22% to 25.150, March up 16% to 27.441 and April up 30% to 27.697. As a result, through April Filipino sales are up 24% to 104.096. Note these are sales of CAMPI members and therefore do not represent 100% of the market.

But the big surprise in the charts is the instant blockbuster status of the Ford Everest, with the new generation model climbing directly into the third place overall thanks to 4.854 sales and 4.7% share. The Mitsubishi Montero Sport is also holding very strong at #4, with the Toyota Wigo and Hilux following. Below, the Isuzu MU-X and Mitsubishi Mirage G4 continue to progress while the Toyota Innova sinks from #2 in FY15 to #9 due to the changeover with the new generation. Further down, notice the Nissan Urvan at #20 and the Mahindra Enforcer pointing its rugged bonnet at #32 with 684 units sold.
