New light vehicle sales in Japan are up 3.9% year-on-year in September to 495.189 units, with the year-to-date total now up 7.5% to 4.060.584 deliveries after nine months. Leader Toyota goes against the grain with a 6.9% year-on-year drop to 27.1% share vs. a round 30% year-to-date, but the next 6 brands all outpace the market: Honda (+8.4%), Suzuki (+5.1%), Nissan (+27.8%), Daihatsu (+6.8%), Mazda (+7.6%), Subaru (+13.5%) and Mitsubishi (+49.1%). Mercedes (+2%) remains the most popular foreign brand, breaking into the Top 10 at #10 overall, ahead of BMW (-0.3%), Volkswagen (+7.2%) and Audi (-5%). Further down, notice Abarth (+23.8%), Land Rover (+28%), Alfa Romeo (+30.4%), Maserati (+55.8%) and Citroen (+83%) all post spectacular gains.

The Honda Freed is up 212% year-on-year to #4 in the cars ranking.

In the cars ranking, the Nissan Note is back up two spots on August to snap the pole position for the 5th time in the past 11 months, posting its largest monthly volume since last March. The Toyota Prius, imploding down 34% at #2, remains however #1 year-to-date, and this despite sales down 39%. #1 last month, the Toyota Aqua is down 17% to #3, now also ranking #3 year-to-date as it passes the Toyota C-HR, #9 in September. The Honda Freed, up 3-fold on September 2016, manages to rank #4 for the third time since the new generation launched last October. The Toyota Roomy is down two ranks to #10 just as the Toyota Tank is up one to #13. Notice also the Mazda CX-5 up 158% to #22, its highest ranking since last March, the Suzuki Swift up 185% to #27 and the Toyota Camry up 666% to #30.

The Mini is the most popular foreign nameplate in Japan over the third quarter of 2017. 

Among foreign nameplates over the third quarter of 2017, the Mini remains in the lead with sales up 2% year-on-year, ahead of the VW Golf (-1%), Mercedes C-Class (-3%), Mercedes E-Class (+12%) and BMW 3 Series (-6%), reproducing the Q2 Top 5. In fact from #5 to #8 are all BMWs: the 2 Series, 1 Series and 5 Series follow, the latter up from #13 in Q2. The VW Polo falls a harsh 38% to #10, the Mercedes GLC is up a further two spots to #14 and both the Mercedes GLA (#16) and Fiat 500 (#20) are back inside the Top 20.

New light vehicle sales in Turkey are up 5.6% to 71.352 units including light commercials, but the year-to-date tally remains in negative at -1.4% to 627.343 sales. Despite seeing its deliveries slide down 1% year-on-year, Volkswagen jumps to pole position this month with 14.3% share, distancing Fiat up 38% to 13.6% and Renault up 41% to 12.8%. Ford is stable at 10.5% in 4th place above Hyundai (+6%) and all other carmakers in the Top 10 are in negative: Dacia (-7%), Toyota (-6%), Mercedes (-8%), Opel (-11%) and Peugeot (-9%). Just outside the Top 10, Skoda (+26%) and Honda (+66%) make themselves noticed. Further down, Subaru (+17%), Jeep (+41%), Iveco (+42%), Volvo (+59%) and Lexus (+425%) are among the most dynamic. The Top 5 best-selling models all display explosive growth: the Fiat Egea (+32%) remains the favourite nameplate in the country ahead of the VW Passat (+40%), Renault Clio (+48%), Fiat Fiorino (+63%) and Renault Megane (+128%). Other great performers include the Renault Symbol (+33%), Honda Civic (+658%), Ford Focus (+29%) and Peugeot 3008 (+1711%).

The BMW 5 Series is up 119% to 4th place overall in September.

* See the Top 48 brands and Top 328 models by clicking on the title *

The German new car market is down 3.3% year-on-year in September to 288.035 registrations, but the year-to-date total remains in positive territory at 2.611.821 units, up 2.2% on the same period in 2016. Once again market leader Volkswagen is in difficulty at -8% but slots a market share higher than its YTD level at 18.5% vs. 18.3%. Mercedes (-2%) beats the market slightly but drops below 10% share for the first time since last June to 9.8%. BMW (+4%) and Opel (-0.3%) both bypass Audi (-9%) to rank 3rd and 4th respectively. Skoda (+12%) is the only carmaker to lodge a double-digit gain in the Top 15, overtaking Ford for 6th place overall, its highest ranking in Germany since December 2012. Hyundai (+9%) is up two spots on August to a splendid 8th place, frankly outselling Renault (-6%). Lexus (+10%), Subaru (+13%) Dacia (+27%), Suzuki (+43%), Chevrolet (+45%), Bentley (+49%), Lada (+53%) and Aston Martin (+250%) are among the biggest gainers in the remainder of the ranking.

For the first time in history, Skoda places two nameplates in the German Top 6.

The VW Golf unsurprisingly tops the German charts, following the market at -2% for a very solid 7.6% share vs. 6.5% so far in 2017. It’s a podium 100% Volkswagen with the Tiguan (-18%) in 2nd place and the Passat (-9%) at #3, this while the Polo, down 48% to #21, drops to #5 year-to-date in the midst of its generation changeover. The BMW 5 Series is the hero of the month, more than doubling its sales year-on-year at +119% to step up 10 spots on August to #4 overall. Skoda places the Octavia at #5 (+6%) and the Fabia at #6 (+11%): according to BSCB records the first time in history that two Skoda nameplates appear in the monthly Top 6 in Germany. If the Octavia is now almost a regular in the German Top 5 (third time this year) and has a personal best of #4 in March 2016, reversely the Fabia hasn’t ranked this high since March 2011 (#6) while its personal best remains #2 in February and September 2009 when aggressive scrappage schemes turned the German sales charts on their head. Then, the Octavia barely managed to break into the Top 20.

First appearance of the VW T-Roc in its home sales charts. 

The Mercedes C-Class is down 21% to #7 but remains #2 year-to-date for now. Exceptional performance of the Mercedes GLC, doubling down on its very first Top 10 ranking last month (#6) with a 9th place in September (+93%). The Opel Insignia is up 98% to #20, the Hyundai i20 up 30% to #28 vs. #46 YTD and the i30 up 36% to #33 vs. #49 YTD. Among recent launches, the Opel Grandland X is up 133 spots to #107, the VW Arteon up 38 to #122 and the Kia Stonic up 61 to #156. Finally, we welcome two (promising) nameplates in the German charts in September: the Skoda Karoq at #194 and the VW T-Roc at #207.

The Citroen C3 leaps onto the Portuguese podium in August.

* Now updated with the ACAP-sourced Top 35 All-brands and Top 225 All-models *

The Portuguese new car market gains 11.5% year-on-year in August to 11.937 registrations, leading to a year-to-date total up 8.1% to 156.695 units. The Top 3 best-selling brands all trail the market: Renault is up 9% to 9.7% share ahead of Mercedes up 3 spots on June and 6% year-on-year to #2, and Peugeot up 0.3% to 8.8% in third place. Reversely, BMW (+15%), Opel (+19%), Citroen (+27%), Toyota (+33%) and most impressively Dacia (+42%) shine inside the Top 10. Below, Mazda (+17%), Jaguar (+20%), Kia (+20%), Fiat (+21%), Audi (+27%), Hyundai (+34%), DS (+48%), Lexus (+52%), Alfa Romeo (+70%), Porsche (+70%), Land Rover (+83%) and Suzuki (+100%) all frankly outpace the market this month.

In the models ranking, the VW Golf splendidly snaps the pole position (it was #5 in July and is #8 YTD) thanks to sales up 36%, overriding the Renault Clio (-22%) while the Citroen C3 is up 10 spots on last month and 51% year-on-year to #3, knocking the Peugeot 208 (-8%) to #4. The Dacia Sandero surges 65% to #5, the Audi A3 is up 40% to #9, the Renault Megane up 64% to #11 and the Opel Corsa up 65% to #12. Notice also the BMW 5 Series up 226% to #16, the Nissan Micra up 438% to #19 and the Mercedes GLC up 483% to #25. The Toyota C-HR (#33 ) leads recent launches (<12 months) ahead of the Opel Crossland (#44), Audi Q2 (#51) and Renault Kadjar (#59).

Brazil September 2017: Kwid surges to #2 overall, lifts Renault to 10.6% share

The Renault Kwid is only outsold by the Chevrolet Onix this month in Brazil.

* See the Top 20 brands and Top 140 models by clicking on the title *

The Brazilian new car market has turned the corner in spectacular fashion, with September sales shooting up 24.9% year-on-year to 193.580 after lifting 17.8% in August. The year-to-date tally is now up 7.9% or 115.000 units to 1.573.562. The September surge is the largest since the 29% increase of April 2013. Brand leader Chevrolet exactly follows the market at +25% to 18.2% share but Fiat trails it at +15% to 13%. Volkswagen compensates for a September 2016 score plagued by a supplier crisis and gains 97% to 12% share, still below the 12.5% it commands year-to-date. The most spectacular performer in Brazil this month is French manufacturer Renault up a fantastic 69% to 10.6% share, up almost 3 full percentage points on August and to BSCB’s knowledge the carmaker’s first ever month above 10% share in Brazil, smashing its previous record of 8.5% established in December 2014. The reason behind this sudden surge is a model that has already proven a hit in India: the Kwid.

In what is surely one of the biggest surprises of 2017, the Kwid soars 259% and 25 spots on its August score to land directly in 2nd place for its fourth appearance in the Brazilian sales charts. At 10.358 sales, it hits a similar monthly volume as the ones delivered in India a few months back, but is markedly above its Indian performance in terms of overall ranking. In the remainder of the Renault lineup, the Sandero (-21%), Duster (-48%) and Oroch (-66%) are hit hard but the Logan (+28%) isn’t, on the contrary. The Kwid has already overtaken the Fiat Argo, launched on the same month, with a total volume to-date of 13.603 vs. 13.163, and is shaping up to be a truly global success for Renault.

Back to the brands ranking: among the rest of the Top 20, only Peugeot (+28%), Jeep (+57%) and Mercedes (+88%) outpace the market this month while Chery becomes the best-selling Chinese carmaker in the country year-to-date, overtaking JAC. Over in the models charts, the Chevrolet Onix continues to gallop well ahead of the market with a 37% imp[rovemnet in September, while below the newcomer the Kwid, the Ford Ka (+32%) passes the Hyundai HB20, down a rare 15%. The Chevrolet Prisma (+15%) trails the market while the Toyota Corolla (+26%) matches it and the VW Gol (+176%) and Fox (+96%) catch up for lost time a year ago. The Jeep Compass is back inside the Top 10, the Fiat Argo is up 6 spots to a record #11 while the Fiat Mobi goes from #8 in August to #16 this month, potentially already affected by the Kwid.

Belgium August-September 2017: BMW X1 shoots up to 2nd place

The BMW X1 is the 2nd best-selling vehicle in Belgium in July. 

* See the Top 50 All-brands and Top 10 models by clicking on the title *

New car sales in Belgium are down 2% year-on-year in September to 40.895 registrations, yet the year-to-date tally remains in positive at +2.6% to 435.341 units. Brand leader Volkswagen plunges down 11% to 9.1% share, whereas its next three followers are all up: Opel (+5%) is up five spots on last month to #2, and both BMW and Renault are up 3% year-on-year. Mercedes (+5%), Audi (+6%), Skoda and Nissan (both at +11%) also shine in the Top 10. Beyond, notice Porsche up 15%, Land Rover up 16%, Suzuki up 20%, Dacia up 46%, Smart up 50% and Ferrari up 200% but Volvo is down 15%, Toyota is down 16%, Citroen down 19%, Honda down 20%, Jeep and Mini down 21%, Tesla down 23%, DS down 24%, Hyundai down 27%, Mitsubishi down 28% and Ssangyong down 44%.

The Top 10 models for the January-August period are now available and once again there are a few changes in the YTD ranking. The VW Golf cements its pole position thanks to a 2.5% share in August, now leading over the Renault Clio (1.6% in August) by 369 sales. The Hyundai Tucson and Opel Corsa both outsell the Clio in August but remain below YTD, while the BMW X1 shoots up to 2nd place overall this month with 2.3% share, snapping the 5th spot year-to-date off the VW Polo. The Peugeot 2008 is getting closer to the Citroen C3 at #7 and the Peugeot 208 reappears in the YTD Top 10 at #10 despite sales down 2% year-on-year

Sweden September 2017: Outgoing generation holds Volvo XC60 at #1

The Volvo XC60 “Classic” enables the nameplate to cement its #1 ranking at home.

* See the Top 45 All-brands and Top 270 All-models by clicking on the title *

New car sales in Sweden mark a pause in September, down 1.9% year-on-year to 31.672 registrations, but the year-to-date total is still up 3.1% to a record-breaking 279.839 units. Homegrown leader Volvo gains a sturdy 8% but remains well below its YTD market share at 18.4% vs. 19.6% while the reverse happens for Volkswagen, up 10% to 17.3% vs. 15% so far in 2017. Kia edges up 2%, a stark contrast with its sister brand Hyundai plummeting down 39%, and also snaps this month the third spot year-to-date off Toyota down 25%. BMW (+0.1%), Mercedes (+16%) and Skoda (+11%) frankly beat the market and are the only other manufacturers in positive in the Top 10, with Audi (-1%), Renault (-5%) and Peugeot (-5%) all down. Beyond, Seat (+36%), Subaru (+20%), Land Rover (+21%) and Ssangyong (+320%) post the largest gains in the Top 30 whereas Citroen (-21%), Lexus (-21%), Mitsubishi (-26%), Ford (-33%), Dacia (-35%) and Tesla (-61%) all struggle.

Kia Niro – Kia is now the third best-selling carmaker in Sweden below Volvo and Volkswagen.

The models ranking continues to see a two-pronged domination by the Volvo XC60, with total sales up 78% to a record 2.683 and 8.5% share ahead of a very dynamic VW Golf up 24% to 2.361 and 7.5% share, its highest scores since November 2015. However, the XC60 score splits into 1.989 “Classic” previous generation (+32% year-on-year) and 694 new generations, double its August score. These detailed figures courtesy of Nils from local publication ViBilagare, who is also reporting that the new XC60 has quickly become a quite usual sight in Stockholm in just the last few weeks. To be noted also is that the XC60 “Classic” currently sold are not stock clearance: the previous generation is still manufactured in Ghent, where it will be replaced by the new XC40 mid-November. All-in-all, it’s fair to say the Volvo XC60 has now secured its first annual pole position at home. Indeed, its closest rival, the new Volvo S/V90, lodges another disappointing month at just 4% share, below the VW Passat (+1%). The VW Tiguan (+116%), Kia Niro (+113%), Mercedes E-Class (+68%) and Kia Optima (+29% to #14 vs. #44 YTD) are the most impressive gainers in the Top 20. Finally, we welcome the Kia Stonic directly inside the Swedish Top 100.

UK September 2017: Nissan Qashqai first Japanese model to rank #1

The Nissan Qashqai is the best-selling vehicle in the UK for the first time in history.

* See the Top 42 brands and Top 10 models by clicking on the title *

The UK market suffers a sixth consecutive month of decline in September, one of the two biggest months of the year as it coincides with new license plates, down 9.3% to 426.170 registrations. This is the first September decline since 2011, pulling the year-to-date total down 3.9% to 2.066.411 and setting the UK towards its first year in negative since 2011 also. The uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the weak pound has delayed purchase decisions and made cars dearer, all combining to affect the UK market negatively. As a result, business (-5.2%), private (-8.8%) and fleet sales (-10.1%) are all in negative this month. Once ultra-dominant Ford (-19%) and Vauxhall (-26%) register the harshest declines in the Top 10 just as Vauxhall falls to a record-low 5th place for the third time this year. Volkswagen has a very solid month, up 8% to 8.5% share vs. 9.3% for Ford, while BMW (-3%), Mercedes (-2%) and Audi (-5%) all decline slower than the market, resulting in improved shares. Aston Martin (+11%), Alfa Romeo (+12%), Seat (+14%) and Infiniti (+59%) are the only carmakers posting double-digit gains in the Top 40, whereas Mazda (-20%), DS (-29%), Smart (-29%), Subaru (-33%), Bentley (-39%), Fiat (-42%), Ssangyong (-54%), Lotus (-57%) and Jeep (-58%) all implode.

The VW Golf posts a 5th consecutive month inside the UK Top 2.

The main event for the month in the UK is the first ever pole position of the locally-produced Nissan Qashqai in the models ranking. The Qashqai had ranked #2 twice before in the UK (January 2016 and April 2017) but had never been the best-selling vehicle in the country before, making it the very first Japanese nameplate to top the charts of any of the Top 4 European markets (Germany, UK, France and Italy). Coincidentally, the Qashqai is also #1 in Spain this month, which means it should easily beat its record European ranking of #5 (hit in February/March 2013, and February/July 2017). Its UK sales are up a whopping 27% year-on-year to 13.499 which actually isn’t the nameplate’s UK volume record (13.742 last March).

There are a few explanations to the Qashqai’s historic first place this month. See below.

So, why the Qashqai and why now? There are a few explanations to this historic #1 spot. Firstly, it wouldn’t have happened without the excruciatingly long generation transition (and more premium positioning) the traditional leader, the Ford Fiesta, is enduring: down another 45% this month to #3 overall. Secondly, a facelifted version with updated equipment and technology launched in July, renewing the interest for the nameplate. We have reached out to both SMMT and Nissan UK for more insights but they remained surprisingly tight-lipped. So we’ll propose a few additional explanations. With the Vauxhall Astra falling by the wayside recently (-48% this month), the Qashqai is one of only a handful of high volume models still produced in the UK, the other two local productions in the September Top 10 being the Mini (#7) and Nissan Juke (#8).

With the pound at record lows, these local productions give more discount leeway to dealers compared to dearer imports from the European Union – such as the Fiesta or Corsa, but then again, the Golf, also imported, is up 16% to a close #2 in September… On uk-car-discount.co.uk, rebates on the new Qashqai range from £3.425 to £6.924, or 18 to 23% of its retail price. In September 92.2% of Qashqai were purchased in England, traditionally fleet-heavy, vs. 90.4% year-to-date, and the Qashqai only appeared in one other nation’s Top 10: #7 in Wales. It did not make it to the Northern Irish nor Scottish Top 10s: logical in Scotland, but not in Northern Ireland. This seems to indicate a particularly strong fleet month for the Qashqai benefiting from heavy discounting. Nissan UK’s silence about its star nameplate’s performance even given pointed questions would make us incline towards that explanation, keeping in mind discount-boosted private sales were also strong, but in England only.

Norway September 2017: Tesla snaps staggering 15% market share

The Model X posts a record month in Norway, pushing the Tesla brand to record heights.

* See the Top 40 All-brands and Top 215 All-models by clicking on the title *

The Norwegian new car market is down 2.7% year-on-year in September to 13.484 units, leading to a year-to-date total up just 0.4% to 116.358 registrations. The performer of the month in Norway is without a doubt electric carmaker Tesla, striking again but this time with even more strength. September results show the U.S. carmaker broke the 2.000 monthly sales barrier for the first time in its history – the brand launched here in July 2013 – at 2.003 units, only 80 below market leader Volkswagen. This equals to a staggering 14.9% share of the Norwegian market. For perspective, its previous bests in Norway were 1.493 sales and 10.8% share in March 2014 when it also ranked #2 and when the Model S was by far the best-seller in the country, this for the third time after September and December 2013. Tesla had only managed to break the 1.000 monthly unit barrier once more: in March 2015 when it sold 1.140 for a 8.1% share and third place overall.

The Volvo V90 is up to 4th place in Norway this month thanks to its PHEV variant. 

This month Tesla places both its two nameplates on the Norwegian podium: below the VW Golf up 37% to 10.1% share (69% for the e-Golf), the Model S is up 4-fold on September 2016 to 1.007 sales and 7.5% share, its best result in 2.5 years – since March 2015, while the Model X is up 66% year-on-year to smash its volume and share records at 996 units and 7.4%, previous best being 609 and 4.3% last June. It’s fair to say Norwegian customers cannot wait for the new Model 3… Other great performers in Norway this month include Volvo up 26%, Porsche up 38%, Hyundai up 42% and Mini up 158%. Model-wise, notice the Volvo V90 shooting up 10 spots on August to #4 pushed by the PHEV variant accounting for 60% of its sales this month, the Mercedes GLC up 82% to #20, the Peugeot 3008 up 7-fold to #23, the BMW 5 Series up 176% and the Mini Countryman up 10-fold.

* See the Top 56 brands and Top 345 models by clicking on the title *

Final data for Europe is now available, showing August sales up 4.8% year-on-year to 892.893 units, leading to a year-to-date total up 4% or 403.000 sales to 10.470.593. Firstly, the three main events described in our previous August European sales post remain: Mercedes ranks #2 brand, the Skoda Octavia jumps on the European podium for the first time at #3 and the Dacia Sandero hits a record-breaking 5th place. In fact, the entire Top 40 brands is confirmed, with only minor changes at the tail end of the ranking: MG passing Chevrolet to #41 and Dodge passing Cadillac to #49. Chinese Geely (-11.1%) and DR Motor (+46.2%) have reverse fortunes but remains below 25 sales each across the entire continent.

In the models ranking, the entire Top 20 is confirmed, with only a few changes on the preliminary Top 50 we published last week. The Ford Kuga is up to #22, passing the Mercedes GLC which still posts a record-breaking #23 spot, the Peugeot 3008 passes the Ford Focus to #25, the Mercedes A-Class passes the Peugeot 308 to #29 and the Ford Fiesta passes the Peugeot 2008 to #32. Great performers in the Top 100 include the Nissan X-Trail (+51.1%), Mercedes GLA (+26.6%), Nissan Micra (+73.9%), Dacia Logan (+36.3%), Seat Ateca (+385.4%) and Peugeot 5008 (+202.1%).

The Toyota C-HR leads all recent launches (<12 months) at #41, followed by the Audi Q2 at #49, the Skoda Kodiaq up 31 spots to #57, the Opel Crossland X up 14 to #85, the Suzuki Ignis up 15 ranks to break into the European Top 100 for the first time at #97, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio at #168 and the Range Rover Velar at #185. Finally, even though they haven’t appeared in any local sales charts in August, this month we welcome the Citroen C3 Aircross at #290 and the DS 7 at #311.
