The Swedish car market is unstoppable in 2015: up another 12% year-on-year in June to 32.257 registrations, lifting the half-year total up 11% to 167.984 deliveries. Volvo even outpaces the market with sales up 16% to 6.596 and 20.4% share vs. 19.9% year-to-date, followed by Volkswagen (-2%), Toyota (+24%), Audi (+12%) and BMW (+18%). Hyundai is up a whopping 31% year-on-year and 5 spots on May to 7th overall, while Nissan (+33%), Fiat (+35%), Subaru (+38%), Opel (+43%), Mini (+95%), Porsche (+98%) and Jeep (+183%) also impress.

Hyundai i30 Sweden June 2015The Hyundai i30 is up 74% year-on-year to #14 overall this month in Sweden.

The Volvo V70 unsurprisingly remains the most popular nameplate in its domestic market, even outperforming the market at +20% over June 2014 to 2.478 sales and 7.7% share, as do the VW Golf (+24%) and Volvo XC60 (+32%) in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Inside the Top 20, the Audi A6 (+39%), Skoda Octavia (+61%), Toyota Avensis (+66%), Hyundai i30 (+74%) and Renault Captur (+41%) also shine, while the new generation Volvo XC90 is stuck in 26th position for now with 334 sales and a round 1% market share.

With the new licence plates slated in for July, the Irish new car market logically slows down to an almost standstill in June at just 1.449 registrations, down 14% year-on-year and bringing the year-to-date total to 82.337 units, still up 25% on 2014 which was itself up 27% on 2013, so good times indeed in Ireland. Toyota (+7%) overtakes Volkswagen (-7%) to become the most popular manufacturer in the country this month but with such tiny volumes (261 sales vs. 241), this has no impact on the year-to-date ranking still led by VW at 10.425 sales and 12.7% vs. 8.866 and 10.8% for Toyota.

Citroen C4 Picasso Ireland June 2015Citroen C4 Picasso sales are up 3-fold year-on-year in Ireland in June.

All other manufacturers in the Top 10 fall heavily except Citroen up 159% to #10. Notice also Volvo up 26% and Land Rover up 31%. Similarly, the models ranking does not have much significance given the best-seller, a Toyota Avensis in full runout mode before the arrival of the new generation, only needs 60 sales to top the ranking. Other great performers include the VW Passat (+160%), Ford Mondeo (+133%), VW Tiguan (+94%), VW Jetta (+100%) and Citroen C4 Picasso (+189%) while the Nissan X-Trail lands at #20.

Bolstered by the extension of scrappage scheme, new car sales in Spain are up an impressive 24% year-on-year to 111.893 registrations, the best June score since 2010 and 2nd best since pre-recession 2008. This brings the 2015 tally halfway through the year to 558.544 units, up a reassuring 23% on 2014. Volkswagen remains the best-selling manufacturer in the country thanks to sales up a beautiful 31% year-on-year, ending past Renault (-8%) at 9.967 units vs. 9.908 with both carmakers holding a 8.9% share of the Spanish market. Ford (+44%), Opel (+23%) and Seat (+22%) follow. Further down, Kia (+68%) is up 5 spots on May to #8, while Nissan, Mazda (+57%), Skoda (+61%), Land Rover (+63%), Mitsubishi (+117%), Smart (+255%) and Jeep (+358%) all frankly outperform the market.

Opel Zafira Tourer Spain June 2015The Opel Zafira Tourer shoots up to #17 this month in Spain.

Over in the models ranking, the Seat Leon reclaims the pole position it held over the FY2014, both in June with 3.642 sales and 3.3% and year-to-date at 19.545 units and 3.5% vs. 19.385 for the Seat Ibiza, also at 3.5% of its domestic market. The Leon distances the VW Polo in June, enabling the latter to climb to #3 year-to-date above the VW Golf. Ford shines in the Top 10, placing the Fiesta at #5 (+11 on May) and the Focus at #7 (+5). The Renault Captur is up 7 ranks to #11, the Opel Zafira Tourer up a huge 49 spots to #17, the Citroen C4 Cactus up 14 to #20 and the Skoda Fabia up 19 to #23. As far as recent newcomers are concerned, the Renault Kadjar edges up 3 spots to #86, the Mazda CX-3 is up 47 to #135 and the Jaguar XE up 14 to #172. We also welcome the Opel Karl at #188.

In the models ranking, the VW Golf is back to a pole position it hasn’t held in one full year (since June 2014), one percentage point above 2015’s leader the Skoda Octavia, while the Nissan Qashqai is back up 4 spots to #3. The Toyota Yaris more than doubles its sales year-on-year to land in 4th place, the VW Passat is up 33% to #5, but the best performer in the Top 10 is without a doubt the Skoda Fabia, lifted by its new generation up from outside the Top 30 in May directly to #8.

The Belgian new car market is down 3% year-on-year in May to 46.335 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 269.187 units, down 0.7% on 2014. A photo finish was needed this month for the Top 3 best-selling models: only 22 units separate the #1 (VW Golf – 1.240 sales) from the #3 (Renault Clio – 1.218 deliveries) with the Renault Scenic up 4-fold on a particularly disastrous May 2014 to 2nd place with 1.227 units. This month’s Top 3 reflects the year-to-date order as well. The Peugeot 308 follows thanks to sales up a stunning 44% year-on-year, with the Opel Astra up 20 spots on April to #8 and the Citroen C4 Picasso up 60% year-on-year to #9 the other great performers in the Top 10.

Mercedes Sprinter Belgium May 2015The Mercedes Sprinter is up to a fantastic 13th spot in Belgium this month.

Further down, the Dacia Sandero (+38%), Fiat 500 (+30%), BMW 4 Series (+71%) and Ford Mondeo (+114%) lodge spectacular year-on-year gains while Mercedes delivers a triple win with the Sprinter (+87%) up to a stunning 13th spot, the C-Class (+70%) and the CLA (+54%). A handful of recent launches continue to climb the ladder: the Fiat 500X is up to #75, the Suzuki Vitara up to #87 and the Land Rover Discovery Sport up to #90. We also welcome no less than four new nameplates in the Belgian ranking this month: the Jaguar XE at #253, the Mazda CX-3 at #269, Renault Kadjar at #270 and the Opel Karl at #293.

After declining for the first time in 16 months in April, the Egyptian market’s cooling down accelerates: down a worrying 14% year-on-year in May to 20.152 registrations which brings the year-to-date total to 114.087 units, now up just 5% on 2014. The Chevrolet TFR establishes it total domination of the models ranking by selling 2.175 units for a 10.8% market share vs. just 1.574 and 7.2% for the Hyundai Verna, once upon a time the unchallenged leader of the Egyptian market. The Hyundai ix35 continues its impressive progression and leaps onto the podium thanks to a round 1.000 sales and 4.6% share, knocking the Nissan Sunny down to #4. Solid month for the Toyota Corolla at #5 and the Geely Emgrand 7 at #7 with the Mitsubishi Lancer EX stable at #6. The Speranza Envy stays at #13 vs. #28 year-to-date, the Peugeot 301 is up 27 spots on April to #17, the Subaru XV up 93 to #30 and the new generation BMW X5 brilliantly lands directly at #53.
