This month the Volkswagen Group manages in Switzerland what it is far from achieving at home in Germany: monopolising the brands podium with Volkswagen up a gigantic 30% on July 2013 to 4,070 sales and 14.8% share ahead of Audi up 1% to 7% share and Skoda up 31% to 6.5%. BMW is down two spots to #4 and Mercedes remains in 5th position. Notice also Citroen up 15%, Hyundai up 20%, Kia up 59% and Porsche up 77%.
In the models ranking, below the VW Golf more dominant than ever at 5.2% share, the Skoda Octavia is solid at 3.6% while the VW Polo jumps back onto the podium at #3 vs. #5 year-to-date, kicking the Audi A3 down to #4. Three great performers in the Swiss Top 10 this month: the VW Passat up 40 spots to #6, the Mini Cooper up 24 to #7 and the Ford Kuga up 6 to #9 vs. #23 year-to-date. Let’s also salute the Citroen Jumpy oddly up to #13 with 74% of its 2014 sales occurring this month, the Skoda Yeti up 21 to #17, Audi Q3 up 14 to #20, BMW 4 Series up 17 to a best-ever #26, the Porsche Macan brilliantly breaking into its first ever monthly Top 50 in the world at #50 and the Citroen C4 Cactus stable at #85.
