For the first time in over two years, the Toyota Innova is the best-selling light vehicle in Vietnam thanks to 550 sales and an imposing 9.3% share.

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.

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.

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%.
