New car sales in Vietnam are still going strong: up a massive 32% year-on-year in June to 10,853 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 54,986 units, up 27% on 2013. Thanks to the new generation launched in the past couple of months, the Toyota Vios remains the best-selling model in the country for the 2nd month in a row with 779 sales and 7.2% share, however it remains #3 year-to-date at 3,030 units and 5.5% below the Toyota Fortuner (6.9%) and Innova (6.7%). Toyota also launched the new Yaris this month and it lands directly in 12th position with 213 sales and 2% share. This means we could have 6 Toyotas in the Vietnamese Top 7 best-sellers very soon…

New car sales in Vietnam enjoy their 13th consecutive month of year-on-year growth at a mammoth +26% in April to 10,116 registrations. This brings the year-to-date total to 34,284 units, up an equally impressive 28% on 2013. The Full Year 2014 prediction from the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers Association now stands at 125,000 units, a conservative 14% up 2013. Down to #2 so far in 2014 whereas it dominated the Full Year 2013 models charts, the Toyota Fortuner is back into pole position in April thanks to 687 sales and 6.8% market share, but the big event this month is the 2nd place of the Toyota Vios only 11 units below the Fortuner at 676 and 6.7% share: the new generation of the model has clearly struck a chord with Vietnamese car buyers.

Toyota Fortuner Vietnam April 2014Can the Toyota Fortuner reclaims its throne this year?

Still leader year-to-date, the Toyota Innova is down two spots on March to third place with 640 sales and 6.3% while the Kia Picanto is up one rank to #4, passing the Toyota Camry down to #5. Excellent month of the Ford Ranger up to 7th place thanks to 351 units and 3.5% share, the Kia K3 impresses with a Top 10 month at #10 and the Nissan Sunny stabilises around the 20th place at #21 both this month and year-to-date.

Only incomplete data – a Top 10 excluding LCVs – is available for now for Vietnam, where new car sales were up a splendid 22% year-on-year in March. This brings the First Quarter total to 24,160 registrations, up an even better 29% on 2013. The Toyota Innova surprises and keep the leadership away from the Toyota Fortuner this month thanks to 593 sales vs. 551, but the event of the month is the arrival on the podium (it didn’t rank inside the Top 30 last month!) of the Toyota Vios with 452 sales and 4.9% share due to the arrival of the new generation of the model. In fact this month Toyota monopolises the Top 4 with the Camry in 4th place.

For the first time in over two years, the Toyota Innova is the best-selling light vehicle in Vietnam thanks to 550 sales and an imposing 9.3% share.

After dropping by a harsh 27% in 2012, the Vietnamese new car market is back up a splendid 37% in 2013 to 110,519 registrations. The best-seller remains unchanged though: the Toyota Fortuner is #1 for the 2nd year running thanks to sales up 32% to 8,067 units and 7.3% share. The Toyota Innova is up one spot and 42% to #2 with 6,011 sales and 5.4% while the Toyota Camry is up an even more impressive 82% to #3 and 5,730 units. In fact, Toyota monopolises the Top 5 this year with the Corolla up 18% but down two spots to #4 and the Vios up 22% but down one to #5.

Kia K3 Vietnam 2013Kia K3

Replacing the Kia Morning #1 in 2011, the Kia Picanto is up 636% and 18 ranks to land at #6 with 3,756 sales, the best-selling non-Toyota in the country. The Kia Forte follows, up one spot to #7 while the Honda CR-V is up 115% to break into the year-end Top 10 at #9 with 2,176s sales and 2% share. We welcome the Ford Transit in the ranking at #10 (it wasn’t included in previous rankings), the Honda City makes a remarkable entrance in the Vietnamese ranking, landing directly at #12 with 1.3% of the market and Mazda models are finally accounted for: the CX-5 is #14, the Mazda3 #17 and the BT-50 #22. The other all-new model in the 2013 Vietnamese Top 30 is the Kia K3 at #25 with 754 sales and 0.7% share.

Vietnamese monthly car sales data is back on BSCB after a 3 month-hiatus: VAMA now only publishes data by batches every second or third month which makes it difficult to ensure a monthly coverage unfortunately. The Vietnamese market is up a very healthy 9% year-on-year in August to 7,082 registrations, which brings the year-to-date total up an even more impressive 18% on 2012 to 57,602 units. The Toyota Fortuner, leader over the Full Year 2012 and so far in 2013, is faithful to its good form with an excellent 9% market share in August thanks to 639 sales, above its year-to-date level of 8.5%.

The Toyota Innova is also very solid this month at #2 and 7.2% share vs. #4 and 5.7% year-to-date while the Toyota Vios only owes its third place in August to the weak performances of the Toyota Camry (#4) and Corolla (#6). The other great performers in Vietnam this month are the Kia Picanto up to #4 and 5% and the Honda CR-V up to a fantastic 7th place at 3.7% share vs. 2.1% year-to-date. Notice also the Honda City, newly available in the country, at #11 and the Mazda CX-5 up to #14.
