At the current growth rate, 2016 will end with just under 450.000 sales. Toyota is in command as usual but drops 3.3 percentage points with deliveries up “just” 261% to 72.642. Mitsubishi (+21%) comes second at 14.3% share ahead of Ford (+61%), Hyundai (+53%), and Honda (+28%).

It is followed by the Toyota Fortuner (11.561) and Hiace (10.247) with the Mitsubishi Mirage and Toyota Wigo rounding up the Top 5.

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. The new generation Toyota Fortuner posts an outstanding 1.431 sales in May for a stunning 2nd place overall, while the Ford Everest continues to deliver record volumes at 1.183 this month and the Mitsubishi Montero Sport is estimated to have found over 1.100 new homes for a 2016 total of 5.870.

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. In April, Toyota is once again the runaway market leader with 41.5% share above Mitsubishi at 18.6%, Ford at 10.6%, Isuzu at 8.4% and Honda at 7.1%. In the models ranking, the Toyota Vios is estimated to frankly hold onto its pole position with 10.5% share over the first four months of the year just as the Hiace gains one spot on its FY15 to 2nd place with 6.7% share.

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.

New car sales in the Philippines seem to be slowing their record-breaking growth pace in July at +5% year-on-year to 24.854 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total up 19% on 2014 to 179.437 units. Toyota tightens its stranglehold over the market even further, monopolising the Top 5 ranks: the Vios continues to fly over the competition with a record 3.102 sales and 12.5% share, distancing the Innova (6%) and Hiace (5.7%) while the Fortuner is awaiting the arrival of the new generation at #4 vs. #2 year-to-date and the Wigo brilliantly breaks into the Filipino Top 5 thanks to 1.200 sales. The best-selling non-Toyota remains the Mitsubishi Montero Sport, down to #6 this month vs. #5 year-to-date and #4 in 2014. However its advantage over the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 has thawed to just 85 units, with the Isuzu MU-X also very strong in 8th place and 4.1% share. The Toyota Avanza is back up to #10 and the Nissan Navara up to #16.

New car sales in the Philippines are on a roll in 2015: up 20% on an already record period in 2014 to 154.583 registrations. This means the Filipino market is on track to break the 300.000 annual sales milestone only two years after passing 200.000 for the first time… Toyota remains ultra-dominant and evolves with the market at +20% to 57.717 sales and 37.9% share while Mitsubishi drops more than 3 percentage points of market share year-on-year due to sales up just 1% to 25.198 and 16.6%. However Mitsubishi’s acquisition of the former Ford manufacturing facilities in Santa Rosa, Laguna in January shows the Japanese manufacturer means business in the Philippines, as this plant has a capacity of 50.000 annual vehicles according to the local press. Hyundai is down 8% to 10.689 sales and will in all logic lose its podium spot by the end of the year to either Ford (+18%) but more likely Isuzu (+58%) pushed by the fantastic success of the MU-X SUV landing directly in 8th place. Inside the Top 10 brands, notice also Honda up 53%, Nissan up 36% and Suzuki up 65%.

Isuzu MU-X Philippines June 2015. Picture courtesy bworldonline.comThe Isuzu MU-X is an instant blockbuster in the Philippines, ranking 7th so far this year.

In the models ranking, the Top 4 is now monopolised by Toyota vs. Top 4 in both H1 and FY 2014. The Toyota Vios continues to be the favourite choice of Filipino customers with a stunning 11.2% of the market, followed by the Fortuner (7.2%), Innova (5.9%) and Hiace (5.5%). The Vios and Innova are manufactured locally, and have helped Toyota pass the 1 million sales mark since the start of its operations in the Philippines by April this year. The Vios regularly breaks monthly sales records for a single nameplate, lifting the figure to 2.886 units in May and 3.000 in June. The Mitsubishi Montero Sport drops to #5 and we find another Toyota in 6th place: the Wigo which is a rebadged Daihatsu Ayla imported from Indonesia. The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 shines at #9, as do the Ford Ranger outselling the Toyota Hilux to become the best-selling pickup in the Philippines at #7, the Ford Ecosport at #10, Suzuki Ertiga at #25 and Nissan NP300 Navara at #27.

The Filipino new car market is up 1% in May to 23.248 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 131.846 units, a figure already above the 126.659 sales posted over the First Half 2014… Carbuyers in the Philippines display very consolidated buying patterns, with the Top 5 brands accounting for no less than 77% of overall sales. Toyota has the lion’s share as usual with a particularly strong 44.6% in June thanks to 10.377 deliveries vs. 43.6% year-to-date. Mitsubishi delivers its highest market share in the world at 15.2% above Ford (7.3%), Honda (5.2%) and Isuzu (4.9%). Chevrolet at #10 and 3.1% is the only other non-Asian brands in the Top 10.

Model-wise, the Toyota Vios cements its leadership even further by smashing its monthly volume record in May at 2.886 units and 12.4% share vs. 10.8% year-to-date, with Toyota monopolising the Top 4 once again: the Fortuner ranks 2nd at 6.9% ahead of the Hiace very robust at 6.5% vs. 5.7% year-to-date and the Innova at 5.9%. Far below, the Mitsubishi Montero Sport is the best-selling non-Toyota in 5th place with 4.5% share while the Toyota Wigo (#6) makes its 5 Toyotas in the Top 6. Excellent performance of the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 up to #7 with 873 sales, of the Mitsubishi Strada at #14, Nissan Navara at #19 and Ford Mustang at #65.
