Singapore Full Year 2016: Vezel parallel imports push Honda to #1

Honda Vezel Singapore March 2016The Honda Vezel is the best-selling new vehicle in Singapore this year.

Lower rates for Certificates of Entitlement (COE) – in essence the permit to drive your car in the country – once again push the Singaporean market forward: after a 99% surge in 2015, 2016 is up another 52% to 87.504 units. Parallel imports account for 22.7% of the market or 19.888 units, their second highest share below the record 23.8% hit back in 2008 when total registrations were 97.348. Lightning strikes the brands ranking: after two consecutive years of domination, Toyota is toppled off its throne by Honda despite following the market with sales up 52% to 18.492. That’s meagre compared to Honda soaring 144% to 19.349 units and 22.1% share vs. 13.7% a year ago. One culprit: the Honda Vezel that sold 9.966 units this year – all of them being parallel imports (PIs). This means the Vezel accounted for 50% of all PIs sold in the country this year and 11.4% of the total market.

The Honda Shuttle ranks third among parallel imports in 2016.

Mazda drops one percentage point market share to 8.1% but gains two spots to rank #3 for the year as Nissan (+26%) and Mercedes (+19%) fare worse. Opel (+282%), Ssangyong (+283%), Mitsubishi (+163%), Suzuki (+93%), Subaru (+74%) and Chevrolet (+73%) are among the other great performers in the brands ranking. Back to the models ranking where the Toyota Corolla Altis, once ultra-dominant, ranks 2nd with less than half the sales of the Vezel. The Corolla however holds onto the annual volume record with 10.910 registrations back in 2006. The Toyota Harrier, Honda Shuttle and Toyota Sienta are the next most successful PIs, all lodging four-digit sales figures for 2016.

Singapore November 2016: Honda close to historical win

honda-civic-singapore-november-2016Honda is about to win the sales race with Toyota for the first time in at least a decade. 

* See the Top 35 All-brands by clicking on the title *

New car sales in Singapore are up 21% year-on-year in November to 7.494 registrations, marking a slowing down of the explosive growth this market has shown all through this year: the year-to-date tally is now up 58% to 80.715. Honda is on the verge of a historical win in the brands ranking: thanks to sales doubling year-on-year in November (+99%), the Japanese carmaker increases its advantage over traditional leader Toyota in 2016 with 17.917 deliveries (+161%) vs. 17.083 (+60%). Mercedes (+26%) and BMW (+22%) evolve roughly like the market this month, but Nissan (-22%) and Mazda (-43%) fall heavily. Notice also Mitsubishi (+76%), Kia (+51%), Porsche (+170%), Chevrolet (+62%) and Opel (up 19-fold) all posting spectacular gains.

The Singaporean new car market is up another 28% in October to 7.809 units, lifting the year-to-date tally up 63% to 73.221 units, a recovery due to lower prices for Certificates of Entitlements. After snapping the YTD pole position off Toyota last month, Honda confirms it is the new master in command in Singapore with a fourth consecutive month as the best-selling brand in the country at 2.031 sales and 26% share, up 84% year-on-year. Toyota gains “just” 22% to 1.615 and 20.7% share and now adds up to 15.409 YTD (+65%) vs. 15.940 (+171%) for Honda. Below, Nissan (-2%), Volkswagen (-27%), Mazda (-32%) and Hyundai (-38%) go against the grain and post year-on-year declines, Mercedes jumps 40%, Kia is up 45%, BMW up 76%, Jaguar up 77%, Chevrolet up 88% and Mitsubishi is up 230%.
