The Vietnamese new vehicle market continues to gallop ahead in August with sales up 29% year-on-year to 23.540, bringing the year-to-date tally up 32% to a record-breaking 187.407 units. Thaco-Kia still owes its market leadership (6.273 sales) to its heavy truck lineup and would be #2 if only light vehicles were counted (3.005) behind Toyota (3.907). Mazda surges 86% to #3, Ford is up 57% to #4, Honda up 119% to #5 and Chevrolet up 51% to #6.
The Kia Morning takes the lead of the models ranking thanks to deliveries up a splendid 69% on August 2015 to 1.330, ahead of the Toyota Innova (+27%), Ford Ranger (+172%) and Mazda CX-5 (+186%). The Toyota Vios, leader in July, is down 19% to a paltry 7th place this month but holds onto the year-to-date pole position at 9.221 sales (+8%) vs. 9.140 (+120%) for its closest follower the Ford Ranger. Further down, notice also the Mazda3 up 147% to #6 and the Honda City up 2650% to #10.
