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%).
