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.

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.
