Thank you

1982 me thanks you for all you have done to make Best Selling Cars Blog what it is today.

Circa 1982, 4 year-old me was shocked to see how dirty some car tail lights were. I developed a mild case of OCD and started cleaning the dirtiest ones… Freaky I know. In the process I learnt how to read by deciphering the car makes next to the tail lights, with the first words I could recognise being Peugeot, Renault and Citroen as this was in Cannes, France.

A lifelong passion was born.

Fast forward to October 2010 when I created Best Selling Cars Blog and it was the start of an adventure that hasn’t stopped amazing me. Never would I have imagined that so many of you would be interested in this blog, coming from absolutely every corner of the planet and sending me a continuous flow of encouragement, praise and information. And I thought this deserved a special place on this blog.

This Thank You page lists out and acknowledges all of you who have helped make this blog what it is right now with your contributions. Please keep them coming! I always mention each and every one of you every time you send me some data that I am able to feature on this site, but I thought I would set up a special page to recognise each of you.

I will keep updating the page each time some you guys send some new data. But PLEASE NOTE: I am still going through the hundreds of emails I have received from you all since the creation of this blog to ensure I include everyone so please forgive me if your name is (not yet) there, I am still working on making the list as complete as possible.

So once again thank you everyone for your contributions, your insights and your visits. This has been an amazing experience and I look forward to continuing to improve it with you. I work every day to make this blog better and I hope you will continue to enjoy it. If you have data you want to share, simply comment on here and enter your email address when prompted (it won’t appear publicly) so I can get in touch with you.

    @Miroslav
    Just to add: the ceauto.hu data may be late because Serbia had a week long holiday season at the very beginnng of March, so many month-recurring things are bit late here now. Also the leading FAS refers to locally built Fiat models: the Punto Classic and 500L combined, but its certain that the 500L is now more popular than the Punto thanks to very plentiful incentives from the governemnt

    Serbia April 2013 first data released, from vrele gume magazine – they show only brands but not the models, however their lists are always complete. According to their data the market is down about 4 percent year on year but is up 16 per cent in comparison to March, Interesting: not a single Citroen sold:

    Hi Igor,
    Thanks for your note and apologies for the late response. I don’t mind Citroens, especially the new DS models… I haven’t got the opportunity to drive one recently though as they are still quite rare in Australia…

    Hi Matt

    I think your russia car sales numbers are incorrect as the Duster sold over 4500 cars in June and over 10000 in the 4 mths since launch.

      Hi Ed,
      Russian car sales traditionally feature June sales for the Top 25 year-to-date models, which is why the Duster, launched in March, didn’t appear in the ranking. However thanks to Maximus I was able to include the Duster so check out the updated article ;)
      cheers

    Matt, I’ve tried to search for data from Center America, but it`s impossible. I`ve even tried to send emails to several associations of importers from those countries but no answers at all. Anyway I`ll keep on trying.
    If I have some news, I`ll share it with you
