Vietnamese new vehicle sales display a stunning 43% growth rate in 2014 to 157,810 registrations. Of these, 57,371 (+42%) are trucks and 100,439 (+43%) are passenger cars. Toyota dominates the brands ranking once again but drops a worrying four percentage points compared to 2013 at 25.9%, with Thaco-Kia starting to breathe on the Japanese manufacturer’s neck at 20.8% share vs. 21.9% in 2013, mainly thanks to its medium-heavy commercial vehicles. This year’s big winner in Vietnam is Ford up a fantastic 71% to 13,988 sales and 8.9% share partly thanks to the Ranger leaping up 161% to 5th place.

Toyota Fortuner Vietnam 2014The Toyota Fortuner ranks #2 in Vietnam in 2014.

Thanks to the new generation’s launch this year and sales consequently up 79% to 9,187 deliveries, the Toyota Vios becomes the best-selling nameplate in Vietnam for the first time, dislodging the Toyota Fortuner (+6%) and Innova (+31%) while the Corolla Altis makes the Top Four 100% Toyota like in 2013. Notice the explosive performances of the Kia K3 up to #9 for its first full year in market, the Honda City doubling its sales to #10, the Mazda CX-5 up 136% to #11, Mazda3 up 89% to #13, Mazda BT-50 up 186% to #14 and the Toyota Yaris up 250% to #17. The Ford Ecosport at #20 and Nissan Sunny at #23 are the most successful new nameplates of 2014 in Vietnam.

New vehicle sales in Vietnam are all guns blazing this year: up a massive 45% year-on-year in October to 14,938 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 121,648 deliveries, up 40% on 2013. Note this figure includes medium and heavy commercial vehicles, and brands not reported by VAMA, the local Automotive Association. Toyota is master in command in the brands ranking with 27.7% of the market in October and 26.2% YTD, local manufacturer Thaco is #2 followed by Ford (10.3%), Kia (6.9%) and Mazda (6.8%). In the models ranking, the Toyota Vios, boosted by a very successful new generation, cements its YTD leadership with 941 sales and 6.3% share in October, adding up to 7,147 YTD vs. 6,901 for the Toyota Fortuner. It’s not over yet, but if the Vios was to confirm and grab the FY2014 top spot it would be a first for the nameplate in Vietnam.

After a few months-hiatus, Vietnam is back on BSCB. 9,842 new light vehicles found a new home in the country in September, with Toyota holding a gargantuan 38.1% share of the market, above Ford at 14.1%, Mazda at 11.5% and Kia at 10.8%. There are a few significant changes in the models sales charts since the last time we had a snapshot of it – last June: the Toyota Fortuner is back to the pole position it held over the Full Year 2013 thanks to 869 sales and 8.8% with the Toyota Vios at #2 and 7.4% and the Toyota Innova rounding out the podium at 7.1%. The Honda City jumps up to 4th place with 4.8% share vs. #18 in June and #12 in 2013, the potential effects of the arrival of the new model pictured above. The Ford Ranger shines at #6, as do the Mazda BT-50 at #9 and Mazda CX-5 at #10. Finally we welcome the Ford Ecosport inside the Vietnamese Top 15 this month at #14 with 231 sales.

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.
