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.

The Toyota Fortuner tops the Vietnamese models ranking for the third month in a row in May thanks to 681 sales and 8.3% share, reinforcing its 2013 YTD leadership at 2,743 units and 7.9%.

The Kia Picanto is the best-selling non-Toyota at #5, but in the 2013 year-to-date ranking the Top 5 is 100% Toyota with the Vios at #5 with 5.2% market share. The other two great performers in Vietnam this month are both Japanese SUVs: the Honda CR-V is up 8 spots on April to a brilliant 7th place with 198 sales and 2.4% while the Mazda CX-5 ranks #16 for the 2nd month in a row at 81 units and 1% share.

2012 has been a difficult year for new car sales in Vietnam, down 27% on 2011 to 80,487 registrations. After being interrupted last year by the Kia Morning, Toyota resumes its decade-long domination of the Vietnamese models ranking, placing the Fortuner in pole position for the very first time and 4 models in the Top 4… The Fortuner sells 6,129 units for a 7.6% share, up 6% on 2011. It held the monthly crown for 11 months this year and its grip on the ranking has been uncontested. The Toyota Corolla Altis ranks #2 like in 2011 but is down 28% to 4,579 sales and 5.7%, followed by the Toyota Innova down 30% to 4,233 sales and 5.3% and the Toyota Vios down 22% to 4,207 units and 5.2%.

Leader last year, the Kia Morning returns to the 5th place it held back in 2010, losing over half its sales year-on-year at 3,469 units and 4.3%.

New car sales in Vietnam slow down their fall in November to -4% year-on-year at 8,502 registrations, however the year-to-date total is still down a dismal 28% at 71,860 units. 7th consecutive month in pole position for the Toyota Fortuner at 708 sales and 8.3%, which means it is more dominant than ever in the year-to-date ranking at 5,257 units and 7.3%. The Toyota Innova is up one spot on October to #2 with 628 sales and 7.4%, a full two percentage points above its year-to-date level (5.2%). The Kia Morning also shines at #3 with 556 units and 6.5%, to be compared to 4.7% ytd.

The Toyota Vios is up 2 ranks to #4 while the Toyota Corolla Altis is down 3 to #5 and the Toyota Camry down one to #6. There are however still 5 Toyotas in the Vietnamese Top 6 in November, like in October and year-to-date. Other great performers this month include the Honda CR-V and Toyota Yaris both up 7 spots to #8 and #11 respectively and the Isuzu D-Max up to #21.
