Amazing start of the year for new car sales in the Philippines: building on a record year 2013 when it broke the 200,000 annual units milestone for the first time, January 2014 sales are up a mammoth 26% year-on-year to 18,647 registrations. Only brands data is available for now, but it’s fair to assume the Toyota Vios could break its monthly volume record for the 5th consecutive time this month: Toyota as a whole is up 50% on January 2013 to 7,047 sales and 37.7% share, more than double the score of the #2 Mitsubishi at 3,411 units and 18.3% share. Other great performers this month include Ford up 31% to #4, Chevrolet up 71% to #7, Suzuki up 43% to #10, Mazda up a huge 374% to #11, BMW up 36% to #15, Mercedes up 150% to #16 and Volvo up 60% to #20.

Finally a reliable models ranking available for the Philippines, even though it’s coming with a bit of delay. Over the first half of 2013, a record 102,571 new vehicles were registered in the country, up 16% on 2012 and the first time the 100,000 sales-milestone is passed after just 6 months. The Toyota Vios is the most popular model in the Philippines once again with 8,895 sales and 8.7% share, including 3,129 over the last 2 months, and should reinforce its leadership over the second half of the year now that the new generation of the model is on sale in the country. In fact the Top 4 is unchanged compared to the Full Year 2012 ranking: the Toyota Innova is #2 at 7,331 units and 7.1%, followed by the Mitsubishi Montero Sport at 6,969 and 6.8% and the Toyota Fortuner at 6,364 and 6.2%.
